    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. Does it small like a fish-and-chip shop as it rushes past you?
  2. I am trying to print the template and I get 404 Page not found for https://www.britishfinescale.com/v/vspfiles/pdftemplates/00-SF/Standard/B7/00-SF_B7_TEMPLATE_A3.pdf
  3. What's the use of that driving ban; one of the things he was charged with was driving while disqualified.
  4. I'm trying to open the latest BRM, but I'm having no luck. So I tried to open last month's copy, which I had no trouble opening and I couldn't open that either. The message I got says "These pages are available to subscribers only". I was under the impression that Gold members are subscribers. What am I doing wrong?
  5. Further to what Martin said, the crossing angle is 8°10'16" (8 degrees, 10 minutes, 16 seconds).
  6. Except you might have read it through a pair of reading glasses, and you might need different glasses when driving, etc.
  7. Yes, and so did I. But it doesn't mean that you can.
  8. Why not call the pub the Lechyd Tavern? I have a superb painting of Glynneath High Street, which shows a chapel surrounded by its graveyard, and the first building next to the graveyard is one of the pubs on the high street. Incidentally, when I visited my grandparents in the 1950s and 1960s, Western Welsh did run a route into Aberdare. Their buses were not as bright red as your one though; that colour was the Red and White colour. And I deffo remember the strange shape of those double windows in the back.
  9. What are those platform lights that work?
  10. You only need to read a nuberplate at whatever distance to pass your test. Once you have passed your test you don't need to take it again unless the judge rules that you must.
  11. I couldn't think of one, but then I saw the picture of the GWR steam railmotor to be released by Kernow, in the (hopefully) not-too-distant future. You could use the power bogie from one of those.
