  1. Nope, in my experience it is nearly always me no matter who or what I try to blame things on.
  2. Not to get off-topic, but the Yellow Pages advertisement . . . . way cool. I can remember hoping to have enough to get my dad something for his layout.
  3. Well, according to the administration, the Chinese are paying the tariffs so it shouldn't affect the prices we see.
  4. This might seem silly, but here goes. A couple of years ago my wife and I were in an elevator with a young family. The little girl had a Peppa Pig suitcase. My wife asked "who is Peppa Pig?" The girl was very animated in describing the show. That night, just for heck, my wife and I watched an episode. It has become perhaps one of our favorite shows. Is it silly? Yes. Is it for children? Yes. But, the show is about a family that seems to have lots of fun together. Two kids who help out their friends, learn hot to get along and laugh alot. Sure is a whole lot better than watching other shows - even the news! Perhaps a 12 step program? Hi, I'm Dave and I think Peppa's pretty cool.
  5. True story. My wife's sister lives in Texas. Two of her granddaughters love Peppa and love talking about where they are going on "holiday." Yeah, in Texas. Gotta love it!
  6. Barnaby, I can't help but see the irony here (is that the right word?) You decided on the "lower high tech" Honeywell system to communicate with your shed which houses a layout that uses a "lower high tech" turnout actuating system (the Blue Point). Dave
  7. Given the memories that the truck brings up . . . is the price even an issue? Congratulations on your find!!!
  8. Well, to be honest, I have driven similar distances (or longer) to get to a well stocked hobby shop just to see what it may have that would catch my eye. I usually end up spending more than originally planned as I find a whole lot of things I never knew I needed until I saw them. From what I can tell a trip to Kernow's would be one of those type of trips.
  9. I was looking for a Noch horse drawn hearse (I want to recreate one of the scenes from the Albert Finney movie Scrooge). Try as I might, I could not find one here in the U.S. at a reasonable price. I did finally find one on ebay from a seller in the UK. The price (even with international shipping) was much lower than anything I've found to date - so I ordered. It arrived today in great shape and I noticed the return address was Upstairs - Downstairs. Totally happy on this end and I'm sure I will buy from again.
  10. Not alone by any means. Learning the various possibilities of constructing benchwork (baseboard) is a good investment in time. After all, you mess up some scenery, you can replace a section. Mess up the foundation and it's start all over from the beginning.
  11. Mark, Sounds interesting indeed. Could you post a couple "under construction" pics so we can see how the two boards work together with your plan? Dave
  12. Wow! Looking awesome Simon. Can we perhaps see a bottom view of the platform roof (a kind of a "how to" pic). Your model reminds me of the Newark NJ Penn Station platform shelters. I'm sure similar structures can be found in many places. Great job! Dave
