  1. In the US Bachmann are having a Thomas and Friends virtual event on 18th Feb with updates and announcements as confirmed here Of interest as Bachmann have now started to introduce the OO range in the UK
  2. Looks like this weeks new episode in Kenya was quite exciting to make! https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-9007881/Chris-Tarrant-reveals-thrown-prison-cell-Kenya.html
  3. Is it possible it’s the controller overheating and cutting out (and there’s nothing wrong with the loco) While you checked the loco, the controller could have then cooled down so that it worked again only to overheat again and cut after running the loco again for 30 to 60 secs Have had the same thing happen with large G scale locos when tested with a train set controller (because I couldn’t be bothered to get a more powerful one out!)
  4. I was trying my best to ignore the photo behind his shoulder? That would be interesting, and difficult to resist if it were made
  5. Yes! Really enjoyable and loving the variety of articles and layouts etc
  6. And the Dapol Railcar is available similarly discounted to less than £300. Looks superb value to me https://www.hattons.co.uk/594565/dapol_7d_011_001_streamlined_railcar_12_in_lined_chocolate_and_cream_gwr_monogram/stockdetail.aspx

  11. I was a member of the GOG for a few years, 30 odd years ago.

  12. Thank you for going to the effort of doing this. Have really enjoyed today, especially the shear variety of different things to look at . The interview with Tim Dunn & the layout ‘Penmaenpool’ have been particular highlights for me

This does indicate it is a physical model
  14. Found this list of preserved railways and their plans regarding reopening, looking forward to when I can visit somewhere : https://www.railadvent.co.uk/2020/06/coronavirus-the-full-list-of-when-railways-are-reopening-wednesday-24th-june-2020.html
