    It started off as the railways I knew when I was growing up, i.e. BR(SR) EMUs in SE London where we lived, and BR(WR) in the S Wales valleys where we went on holiday to my grandparents' house. The freight side then developed into Coal and Iron Ore, and I got interested in those minerals in the US and Australia, so it all got out of hand. Good thing my layout's in the garden :)

  1. Can you change the screen resolution so strikethrough is available, do your strikethrough, then change your resolution back to how you want it? You may need a magnifying glass for one of these steps, of course, but better that than not having strikethrough at all.
  2. Are you sure that's not one of those steampunk creations? It looks awful.
  3. If you are going to lower the road under low bridges how are you going to stop the road flooding when it rains? Even a couple of inches of water is dangerous as it hides what's under the surface.
  4. This video suggests that the bridge is to be reconstructed by 2018. Is there an after-2018 picture/video of the bridge?
  5. Wasn't '59 the year the DMUs started work in the Cardiff Valleys? The 64xx that ran the autotrains before then would have become spare, so they would have had one or two to send to Tondu.
  6. Even I knew that, thanks to reading Arthur Ransome when I was little.
  7. Can you just run those locos through the carriage washer to clean them up?
  8. I'm currently building a N-gauge layout based on Paris-Bastille which I am going to call Basty, because it is going to run British stock. This is an experiment (haha! an experimental layout at my age!) and a change of pace from my OO layout in the garden shed.
  9. I shouldnt have to do that; it should be programmed in the first place.
  10. There is one thing that I notice hasn't been fixed in the new software. There is still no space between the word "Location" and someone's location. Is this down to the people who made the software, or is it something you can fix in due course?
  11. I read the article and looked at the pictures, especially the last one. I must say that it looks to me that the bridge was unfit for purpose; it was originally constructed on the cheap, and any vehicle hitting the side of the bridge would destroy it. I don't see why the driver's insurers should pay all the costs of replacing the bridge, but they should pay something for the damage that was done.
  12. I doubt many people wil have noticed this. At 23:59 I have several threads in the section headed "Last hour", all of them timed within the previous half hour. At 00:00 I have nothing in "Last hour", and everything that was there is now added to "yesterday". Nothing has changed with this, because that is what happened with the previous version of the software. Is that what is supposed to happen? I would expect anything timed within the past hour to be in the "Last hour" section, no matter which date applies to the thread. Can it be changed?
