  4. Well done Keith,can't wait for my GT3................now for the Fell!!, I love this brave approach to manufacture. I reckon you're on a winner. Despite the skeptics, I reckon these unusual one offs are very attractive propositions. Rgds.........Mike

  6. Welcome to the forum and good luck with your layout, there are a couple of great layouts on here based on the Peak, I am originally from Derby and remember the area with great fondness, a really beautiful part of Britain. Rgds.........Mike

  12. 46112+D100 both with the Sherwood Forester namplates in place were displayed at Derby Station in the early sixties, 46112 losing her plates soon afterwards, whilst I do not like locomotives assuming identities they did not carry in BR service, I cannot begrudge the name on a locomotive of the regiment in which my dad served....1st battalion in WW2 and in the territorials after in the 5th. his commitment to his country, makes me proud and somewhat humble. Rgds.........Mike
  13. In late 57/early 58. I went on a hike through the Peak with the Scouts, I remember three things..........it was bl00dy freezing, my mother made me wear these horrible hairy short trousers whch chafed my legs and that we were hauled by 45509 from Derby to......yes you guessed it..........Chapel en Le Frith. Great layout chaps. Rgds.......Mike
  14. When I was in the workforce, the company who employed me produced expensive equipment. In the last few years I was there, we experienced myriad complaints that the machines were not fit for purpose. In one of our regular management meetings I fronted the expat European MD with the question " who is doing the R&D on this stuff........he looked at me, winked and said "the customer"....bloody disgusting!! Small people were experiencing extreme difficulties(some went broke) at the hands of a very large Europe based multinational. Glad I'm away from this hypocrisy. Mike
