  1. Had a rather joyous, albeit temporary dream last night that Hornby announced an LNER E4 - wishful thinking, or a premonition?

      I had hoped that Locomotion would announce this, not to be, we get a Precedent instead. Still feel this will not sell as well as an E4.

    3. Hroth


      Perhaps they have now got a feel for balancing a 2-4-0 and it will set a Precedent....



    4. NXEA!


      A Precedent does have the pretty/collectible factor - an E4 has a more bucolic/‘cute’ look to it though. Fingers crossed - as I have been doing for the last few years! 

  2. Two brothers. In a van. And then a meteor hit. And they ran as fast as they could.

      The horn when you honk it makes a sneeze noise


  3. I have a micro layout and I haven't done anything to it for the best part of a year. Need to pull my finger out and get my mojo back. 

  4. Youth Hostelling with Chris Eubank

      Arm-wrestling with Chas and Dave

  5. Travelled from Ely to Peterborough across the rather frosty Fens this morning, just as the sun was rising. Great part of the world.

    1. LNERGE


      Probably just wrapping myself round a cuppa at Burnt House Drove before going out on track about that time.

  6. Today is the day

      Is it your birthday, then?

    2. Hroth


      Its my unbirthday

      No, I was doing my Dolmio impression

      Did you mean movements?

  8. This vegan lark is a bit hard - I miss Stilton. On the plus side, feeling the benefits after a couple of weeks now.

      apparently nice with a slice of bacon!

      Nah, I’m done with bacon.

      Could no more eat a pig than a dog these days.

  9. Changing the toilet seat is now my least favourite household chore.

      Hadn't changed them since we moved in, has been on the to-do list. Dirty business indeed. Bolts were completely rusted so spent 30 mins smashing the hinges on both seats with a hammer to weaken them enough to pull out with the claw. Previous least favourite chore was taking out the bins, but that is a joy in comparison.

    3. Trog


      It can also be annoying when working on said appliance when you find out that the various parts are not bog standard after all.

    4. shortliner


      Agreed! b- a PIG of a job and none of the modern bits fits properly!


  10. Knackered. Been flat out since mid-October, Christmas shut down can't come soon enough.

      I know what you mean. At least I can bypass most of the pre-Chrissy bedlam!

  11. A J15 in O Gauge. One can dream...

      RTR chaps - haven’t got the skills to build that.

  12. Just picked up a J69 on evilBay, very pleased.

      I thought it was fog that rolled.

      Wrong type of lettuce

      Don't they hibernate at this time of year? Try again in the spring perhaps?

  16. Just voted in the wishlist, so I expect to see everything I voted for available tomorrow for £1 each. That is how this works, right?

      Hattons have them on offer a year later.


      £1 is a bit of a fantasy however...

    3. adb968008


      Depends.. if the £ falls that far, they could always create “new £”, just like they did with “new pence”

    4. Hroth


      Only after we've all become billionaires.



  17. It ruins a detailing project when you accidentally damage the loco. Relatively minor, but I can’t help but notice it. So frustrating

      Perhaps the damage could be repaired in such a way that paint and weathering disguise it?

  18. I would love one of the Locomotion GNR Atlantics in BR Black. Not for 280 sheets though. Looks like I’m a bit late to the party on that one!

      Hattons have got a GNR one 2nd hand for £197. You could always buy that and repaint it....;)

    3. NXEA!


      Locomotion are still selling Green ones for £179, but I wouldn’t trust myself to make a decent fist of respraying one!

      If it's being delivered by Yodel look over your next door neigbours fence

    3. NXEA!


      Or if it’s Hermes look in your black bin... found one of my Clauds in there!

      I'm in the same boat,nothing since April!


  20. It appears my Family Guy reference in one of my posts went over some heads and the post has been removed. Hmm.

      Don't blame others if it just looked a racist and sexist comment.

  21. Lovely trip to Cromer with my family today. Picked up 55 Years of East Anglian Steam for £6 in a tiny bookshop near the promenade, bonus!
