  1. Patience. Either the card game, or waiting for things to improve.
  2. From this statement, I guess you don't live near, or have ever lived in, Corby?
  3. A very North American style of loco coal bunker, too, plus rather modern dress on the part of the photographers/spotters...
  4. I have, so far, found one other potentially positive outcome from Brexit, which relates to easing the regulations applied to small banks, so that they are not the same as those applied to "internationally active" or "systemically important" banks, with all the bureaucracy that entails. (The EU approach to implementation of international banking agreements was to apply it to everyone, regardless of whether or not this made sense.) That said, given that the referendum was 5 years ago now, our own government, via the Bank of England, has been rather slow in getting around to even discussing

  10. As it is 3D printed, would it be available for other scales?
  11. You set em' up, and I'll bowl 'em. Just don't expect me to bat. Or at least, not for long.
  12. This is increasingly the case, or as I have seen elsewhere, people taking about preserved locos which ran over the line of interest. I spoke to Ade recently: for various reasons, he is completely off modelling, but has not intentions of letting his blog disappear.
