      It seems to have been fixed, for now, at least. And the banner is no longer across the top of the pages.

      A day.. they were there for all of 60 mins 1 day, 90 the next... that’s a long expensive trip needing a UK visa. to fly and give up sightseeing so easily... I think the credibility of Russian cover stories was better before trotting out these two... they’ve pretty much admitted to it.

  22. loves his cat a little bit less when she uses newly laid track as a scratching post...

    1. admiles


      My ginger and white lump still owes me a Fleischmann N gauge Profi coupling - Daft lump ate it!

    2. steve22


      Being the big softy that I am, I was wondering how I would keep our lovely but pesky cat out of my shed when it arrived. Shed now up but we had to 'say goodbye' to our cat when he became seriously ill (yet again, and again). Now I long for him to still be with us so he can sleep on a sunny part of the baseboard once more...

      Cats are not pets. They are sent as a punishment.
