  1. If you haven't already done it, I strongly recommend trying that out on a plank of wood before you commit to it.
  2. What? Leaving already?
  3. Here's my retaliation: https://irishrailwaymodels.co.uk/collections/locomotives/products/a23r-a-class-locomotive
  4. I refuse to be drawn into this. I will only make one contribution. Armpits.
  5. I was going to do that. You've spoilt it all, now.
  6. Thank you, Tony. I think it's more to do with the *artici*ants than the *lace.
  7. There's no need to a*ologise, Chris. It's all a bit of fun, and helps to create some lightheartedness to relieve the stresses of the *andemic. I've now found my dictionary and will start reading the section that starts with a *.
  8. Painting - "Post precipitation."
  9. It's just a bit of retaliation. Shame there's no 'P' in that.
  10. Pathetic pelmets? Photofloods preferred for photographic perfection.
  11. Passengers, Panniers and Prairies. Promising.
  12. Perhaps plainly put? Presumptuous, possibly.
  13. Hang on a minute. I'm just going for a P.
  14. Now that the second kink has been removed and the sleepers repositioned correctly, see if you can spot Pete.
  15. A quick search found this: https://www.dccconcepts.com/product-category/decoders-and-installation/dccconcepts-zen-decoders/keep-things-on-the-move-with-a-zen-stay-alive/
  16. Hmm! Just think what you could do by cutting and pasting those signatures. . . . . . . . . . . .
  17. You guessed correctly. In that position there's hardly any movement at all. Although the drilled holes are (slightly) larger than the wire diameter I have found that the ballast is not too adventurous and stays put. There's no reason why you shouldn't use protection, though.
  18. It's quite simple, really. I didn't think of it! It would be 2 fewer holes to drill, certainly. The two wires soldered to the blades are to remove the dependency on the pivot arrangement to pass current to the blades. I have known that joint to get bunged up with stuff. Technical jargon.
  19. How does it compare, in your eyes, to the photograph you used as a refefrence? In my experience, realism comes from copying the real thing. Is your rust too orange? Does the dirt really run down the sides like that? Is the inside a uniform colour? You may well be able to be your own critic if you use a reference source that shows all the necessary detail.
