  1. First check probably to see that the back to backs are consistent. The traction tyred wheels may be different to the ones that go through ok, in which case if you can ease them on the axles to the same spacing - which could cure it.
  2. A box popped up on the browser I normally don't use for Facebook, with a tiny "Not Now" button to click at the bottom. You still end up with a banner at the bottom, but you can see what's on the page. Of course, that's only testing one browser - Chrome - I can't speak for other operating systems and browsers.
  3. All three are done to pretty high standards, I really can't see a need for Accurascale to waste their money there. Is there really such an untapped need for wishlisting that it has to be done on someone's product page before they've even got that model out?
  4. Mentioned definitely on February 27th, and over the following days. The discussion got a bit bogged down in the inevitable RMWeb argument about the legitimacy of criticism
  5. You didn't imagine it. I was thinking about that story earlier in the week - but after the allegations, it went quiet.
  6. My thanks to all who pointed it out - I missed that detail. See, one can't even trust oneself to get the facts right!
  7. No one on this page (including the linked post by Heyfordian/Dave on the airshows forum) has said he travelled business class - merely Stationmaster's comment that it might have been a 'business trip'. If this was the reason for the trip, he would have only claimed the business part of the trip as expenses. Indeed on the airshows forum he calls it a holiday. I've just noticed that you first queried this "cup" in 2013, and your original comment appears to have been deleted, just leaving the tell-tale of someone's reply and then Dave's explanation as above. Did you delete your question? (Sorry everyone for flooding this thread with multiple posts. You know how it is: you make a comment, then people quote you, and you end up going back despite having other things to do!)
  8. We've been here before, haven't we? Not only that, but no one managed to come up with the name of an organiser of (or helper at) said exhibition to corroborate the story. I guess the more detail given in an account, the less likely people are to investigate. Especially given the sort of people modellers are - an absence of facts tends to get some people immediately digging for more information, just out of interest.
  9. Given the last few pages here, are you absolutely certain about the truth of what you were told?
  10. Bernard Ingham was her only press secretary. Doesn't mean the memory is entirely false, without further research I have no idea how many deputies Bernard had, or whether the recollection of the job is wrong. (Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Downing_Street_Press_Secretary#List_of_Press_Secretaries) The name Ian Murray is difficult to search online, owing to Ian Murray MP (born 1979) filling the search results. By the way, the Thatcher papers for 1982 are available online, and avoiding doing proper work I've searched them and found no mention of day to day appointments such as modelling awards. Sadly, 1982 was a year dominated by the Falklands, so the focus is elsewhere.
  11. If any good can come out of this, maybe it could be a recognition that not every awkward or unwelcome question is intended to troll, and not every critic is simply being, as Dave liked to call them, a "naysayer"?
  12. Interesting thought, but if tracking of the few parcels I've seen is to be believed, most of the time they were/are just sitting in warehouses waiting to be moved to the next step in the chain.
  13. Or ... we don't know and it doesn't tie up neatly, not if as reported earlier in the thread the two locos were the Class 71 and the Austerity. I'm confused where this "other site" got this information from, however.
