  1. How tall is that kid in the green jumper! Smashing picture though, all those little details you can clutter round a box. I especially like the gable ended models, they can be used on other railway lines to the West Country too. Rich
  2. If you’re not too worried about the mechanics, have it in that space at the “throat” . That way you can have a pathway down from the end of the platform, his bike against the back wall, no need for a privy, etc. Hows your weather looking? they’re talking about 41 in Adelaide Sunday. I’m not jealous. Rich
  3. When you started on about a corner shop doorway at five minutes to midnight , then mentioned an election, I wondered which way the story was going! Rich.
  4. I agree with Tony, the signalman (person) would have an unobstructed view, and you won’t have a nightmare working out the point rodding. Ask me how I know. Rich
  5. It’s yer warm climate, mate. You take the spirit level out of the freezer in the morning and by ten o’clock it’s telling you things you don’t want to know! Rich
  6. I’d never noticed an elongated centre splashed before. Did the 43xx have larger wheels?
  7. Don’t smack him in the mouth, you know he’ll need to move his lips to read the wurds Rich
  8. You’re right about fun building and weathering Walrii (?) when you look at period photos it’s fun putting all the patches and strengthening plates on they seemed to accumulate. Is that a Falcon Works Shark lurking in the background? They’re fun too, all those little brackets along the sole bar! Rich
  9. I used a set of Mousa sides on an Airfix GW coach, but ended up cutting so much away to get it in “ gauge “ it was virtually a rebuild. Dave at Roxey does Southern bogies but not sure about Ironclads. As long as you get the face and roof right you’re nearly there, although your coach still has the lookouts? Rich.
  10. Mr Duck So pleased to hear you’re doing okay, can’t understand why your bowels should need a companion though. I’ve got a copy of Mike King’s bible on pull-push, can’t let go of it as they are scarce,as you say, but I’m quite willing to do any research for you. Is it the Exmouth Junction sets you’re interested in? Stay safe, Rich
  11. More of a “poof” , but it doesn’t make it a bad person. S.M.Okey
