  1. Looks like Evesham came out of the same packet as Bargoed .................................................. come to think of it, they rather resemble a packet - of cereal !
  2. Unless the results of people stuck at home with 'nothing to do' in the first lockdown - nine months ago - has had a dramatic effect on the birth rate, I guess the population will be dropping at present .............. what an interesting year to have a census !
  3. Bloody Eck - that must have been one hell of a cat ! ..................................... probably a relative of the Goodies' Kitten Kong !
  4. Definitely NOT Hither Green - there were no buildings that old as the shed was only built in S.R. days ! ...... yes, looks like Brighton.
  5. ................ but who's going to choose to walk fifteen minutes* there an' fifteen minutes* back if they're in a hurry ? *Based on an average walking speed of 3mph - other walking speeds are available.
  6. I think if BR could exercise THEIR version of Rule 1 and put a couple of 16xx on the Dornoch Branch, I'm sure nobody's going to bat an eyelid at one rolling into Cwmdinbath.
  7. I think it's fair to say that any goods loco with 5' wheels or above would be used for excursion work when necessary .......... how necessary or how frequent would depend on the Railway concerned.
  8. Don't forget THE bible series from Don Bradley : https://www.billhudsontransportbooks.co.uk/bhtb/bh9897/locomotives-of-the-lbscr-part-1/ ......... the B4s are inVolume 3.
  9. Ugly is in the eye of the beholder ...................... but they're far better looking than the 'Krugers' !
  10. Have you finally discovered the question of Life the Universe and Everything ? - the answer fits !
  11. Not unlike Steam Railway's April Fool spoof on City of Truro ................... but without the lining.
  12. Fair bet they didn't get renumbered ............................................
  13. Congratulations ............... I trust you were first in line for the jab !
  14. I can't speak for anyone else who uses three-link couplings - but I do so to reduce the overscale gap between vehicles ......... and I'll be fitting scale etched hooks to my vans to achieve that. ( sprung if possible )
  15. I'm not sure about the date of the shed but the railway to Bath opened in 1869 - so perhaps just a wee bit earlier than the '70s.
