      Not to worry folk - there's still Channel 81 as a football free zone and often with lots of scenic information for those modelling the '50s and '60s.

      I hear ye're a racist now, Father! How'd ye get into that type of thing? Should we all be racists? What's the official line the Church is taking on this?

  10. OK, Who's gonna tell him?

  11. Unexpected package in the post. Sender not stated. 771.11 grams. Don't want to destroy the mystery by opening it!

      It was book sized, book weight and inert, like a book. It was...

      A book that I had forgotten I'd ordered about the Taf valley.

      I know that feeling - a copy of "I tried to run a Railway" appeared at home a few days ago. Turns out I ordered it some 15 months ago...

      Virtually catastrophic...

  14. Could be a classic snooker final. Late night ahead?

    1. Kylestrome

      Not so sure about the press conference, though ...

    2. Hroth

      Certainly TMI there....

      That's the naked truth.

      Possible Bank Holiday drinking game?

    2. sharris

      sharris

      length of a snooker cue is just a bit over (~1-3") standard gauge. You'd be needing an extension for broad gauge.

    3. DonB

      DonB

      I'd still be useless at the game even if they had Broad Gauge pockets.

  16. When did jumping on the spot while glitter cannons go off around you become a recognised celebration?

  17. Annoyed at Pinterest for trying to wall-off useful info.

    1. Hroth

      Hroth

      Monetisation is everything.

  18. Just found "The Observer's Book of British Steam Locomotives" on a bookshelf. Should be fun to read this potted history.

    1. tigerburnie

      tigerburnie

      I've still got my 1957 British Railway Loco's one I had when new.

    2. Harlequin

      Harlequin

      1974 edition. Price £1.10.

    3. Hroth

      Hroth

      I've the '57 and '64 editions of BR Locos ed HC Casserly. The depletion of steam locos in the '64 edition is a really sad coda to main line steam.

  19. Postlady arrived with a small parcel. Barclay? No, nematodes for the greenhouse. Not quite so exciting but still...

      I thought you weren't allowed to send livestock through the post?

  21. Plastic sleepers on the Blaenau Ffestiniog - Life imitating Art?

    1. sharris

      sharris

      I had to laugh the first time I saw a sign on a main line track saying 'Caution: ballast gluing in progress'.

    2. Huw Griffiths

      Huw Griffiths

      Were they that recycled plastic they sometimes make park benches out of?

      Is C&L supplying them....?

  22. We must draw lots! Eccles, write your name on a piece of paper and put it in this hat.

      There now. What does is say? "Mrs Phyllis Quatt".

      I don't like this game.

  23. We demand rigidly defined areas of Doubt and Uncertainty!

      Things just happen, what the hell.

    2. Kylestrome

      Kylestrome

      Precisely how vague do you want to be?

    3. Pacific231G

      Pacific231G

      A nationwide strike by the union of philosophers, sages and allied luminaries would br disastrous. For a start there wouldn't be any trains running because trains are certainly uncertain and with nobody to speculate on whether a train might exist, since it couldn't certainly exist then it certainly wouldn't exist. You might be able to ask Deep Thought but who would wait 3.5 x 10^6 years for the next train.

  24. I found a copy of "GW Auto Trailers - Part Two"!

    1. Ozexpatriate

      Ozexpatriate

      I take it there is no sign of part one?

    2. Harlequin

      Harlequin

      Part two is much rarer than Part one, for some reason. Been looking for ages...

  25. I'm going up the garden to my shed to make baseboards. If the snow sets in and I'm not back by lunch time please send a rescue party.

    1. Metr0Land

      Metr0Land

      Funnily enough my garage (separate from house) has its own ring main with 60amp power so I could in theory install a cooker
