  1. I tried that cream you recommended and the rash has started to fade, but it still itches.

      The important thing is not to scratch it.

      We have some stronger cream in the consulting room. Would you walk this way, sir?


  2. Don't ask me why, but I get an impression that they're satisfied with the design.
  3. Not if the reviewer is open about the fact that it’s a return. It depends on whether the purpose is to give a prospective buyer a balanced view on a model or just churn through them. What @dibber25 said, really
  4. Plus plus plus…advertising & other sponsorship deals.
  5. It looks as if they might’ve addressed the under-boiler seam. If so, props. But better photos would confirm if that’s the case.
  6. A blessed relief for me. I've always worried that the CFO would see how much I'd spent in the past!
  7. Also, different shops had different Maunsell Greens. Phoenix offer Ashford (light olive) and Eastleigh (dark olive), for example.
  8. It's not apparent on the prototype. Or at least not as apparent as Hornby might have us believe: Funny thing is that when I questioned Simon Kohler about this, he said that there was no seam on the model. Hmmmmm.
  9. 150 more updates along these lines should get this thread to 200 pages! Let's just hope that the stocks hold out

    70000 BRITANNIA

    Brilliant! I must remember that.
  11. The only B coaches that I have are the birdcages. I’d consider the Bulleids when available but, since I’m already 57, I may not still be around when they finally get here.
  12. Watching Terror By Night, in which Basil Rathbone's Sherlock Holmes solves murder and jewel theft on the London-Edinburgh express, on seeing the 'external shots' all I could think was "train set curves".

  13. I expect that Graham is hardly surprised, accepts it for what it is, and is doing something far more productive with his time.
  14. Presumably you’re referring to the rails being too close together?
