  5. Does secondhand rolling stock always smell of stale tobacco smoke?

    1. Harlequin

      Harlequin

      Ooph! That wasn't a swear word, honest! Just an old term for rolling tobacco. (This is all getting a bit distasteful, sorry.)

      One secondhand item I bought did smell of diesel, mind you it was 1:1 scale and weighed 73 tons lol

      Well over half of my models are secondhand, saving me many hundreds of £ pounds on new prices. Problems or faults are rare, which is ok, considering I take my layout to some of the local exhibitions

  6. Expecting 3 deliveries but I've got to go out. How many cards through the letterbox when I get back?

    1. Harlequin

      Answer: None.

      I have a feeling that there is a subliminal message here, but I'm not sure what it is.

      Personally, I thought the little green racing car was grotesque!

      I want to go on one of those antiques programmes, just to be able use my Dad's phrase "wouldn't give it house room"

  8. If I can find my 25+ yr old MekPak bottle, will it still contain anything?

    1. Harlequin

      Harlequin

      Found all sorts of other rubbish and a few treasures but no MekPak yet. More boxes to go through.

    2. Harlequin

      Harlequin

      Found it! 3 bottles, one empty two with something in and a bottle of Humbrol "Liquid Poly".

    3. The Stationmaster

      The Stationmaster

      If it has been stored in the right conditions it might contain some - but probably nowhere near all - of the mekpak that used to be in it.

      Suppose you will have 'shedloads' of railway there!

      Shed = another 6 years on your life span according to some research years ago

  11. Not arguing with anyone...

      You must have the patience of a saint!!

    3. Hroth

      Hroth

      Ommmmmmmmm....

  12. Garry Kasparov sounds exactly like Gru from Despicable Me...

  13. I need Gill Sans!

    1. Harlequin

      Harlequin

      I know... He was "unpleasant", shall we say. But Gill Sans is /the/ railway font and none of the alternatives are half as good...

    2. Hroth

      Hroth

      Culottes?

       

      A bit draughty at this time of year!

  14. "Where's the cue ball goin'?"

    1. Hroth

      Hroth

      Not just the cue ball, the object balls keep going anywhere BUT the pockets...

    2. The Stationmaster

      The Stationmaster

      Usually into a pocket in my case.

  15. The standard of snooker is very poor this afternoon. I blame the wasps.

      Some people reckon they add a new buzz to matches.

  17. Bored and frustrated at work already - and it's only January!

  18. In place of Rachel elegantly placing numbers on a board we have fat blokes throwing arrows at numbers...

    1. Hroth

      Hroth

      But at least they're not sinking pints between throws (as it were) as they did in days of yore!

    2. Harlequin

      Harlequin

      I meant to say "at numbers on a board" to nicely round off the comment. Ho hum, brain fade due to lack of afternoon intellectual challenge, perhaps?

    3. BoD

      BoD

      They might do ok in the numbers round.

  19. The "Rest of the World" are rubbish at Robot Wars. All mouth no trousers.

    1. The Stationmaster

      The Stationmaster

      Exactly so - something of a walkover.

      MarkC

      It's never been the same since Chaos 2...

  20. Big Windows 10 update coming down the line! V1709

    1. NGT6 1315

      NGT6 1315

      It’d be a killer update if it were version 1701! xD

  21. I'm a GWR branch-line kinda guy. Should I own a Flying Scotsman?

    1. Captain Kernow

      Captain Kernow

      I don't really know. I don't know any men down any pubs.

    2. Hroth

      Hroth

      Just get a cheap one from ebay and put it at the back of the shed on blocks minus the drivers...
