  1. From Deep navigation Colliery, South Wales, apparently. Now everything comes by road and gets tripped off the Tip sidings (next to Didcot Fuel Point/Shed is). Paul
  2. Oh to have snow! Would be nice to get some in the 'Shire, but it seldom happens. Regards, Paul
  3. Re Moto @ Bristol: Loaded on the Motorail docks.... In this 1983 shot you can just make out some cars (on what I'm assuming are mk1 carflats) behind the 08 Access through the gate in front of the 158! https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@51.4491944,-2.581442,3a,48.9y,144.08h,88.12t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1spplSDenA4TOQG_NgTogwMw!2e0!6s%2F%2Fgeo2.ggpht.com%2Fcbk%3Fpanoid%3DpplSDenA4TOQG_NgTogwMw%26output%3Dthumbnail%26cb_client%3Dmaps_sv.tactile.gps%26thumb%3D2%26w%3D203%26h%3D100%26yaw%3D77.25529%26pitch%3D0%
  4. Joseph, 'Passporting' is the issue at hand here - the mechanism by which a financial service* in one country within the EEA (European Economic Area) can serve a citizen of said country whilst citizen is resident in another EEA member state. The UK ceased to be a 'Contracting Party' to the EEA Agreement back on 31st January 2020, however we are of course in 'transistion' currently so previous rules apply until 31st December 2020. The issue currently lies within the EU solely. The UK has enacted legislation to enable a citizen of an EEA member state to retain access
  5. The issue you have linked to in that DW article is unconnected to Brexit entirely, and concerns only the Tax obligations of US Citizens resident overseas. US Citizens are subject to domestic US taxation on their earnings made outside of the USA, even whilst residing outside of the USA, and they are required to submit tax returns to the US IRS (Internal Revenue Service) every year. Only two countries tax their citizens like this; the USA and Eritrea. A US Citizen living and working in the UK, earning money only in the UK (for example) is subject to US taxation as we
  6. You mean these? (Taken from PECO N 55 Streamline points.....) If so, drop me a PM with your address. I'm assuming you're in the UK, so I can stick some in an envelope and send them out in the week. I'll stick a 1st class stamp on it, if they turn up great, if not, you've not lost anything. Regards, Paul
  7. Oh dear, Thanks for taking the fun out of my Saturday - and it's not even 10am yet! Paul
  8. Scale weight? That would weigh in at 686 Kg! Eeek, Paul
  9. Well, I know it is highly unlikely, what with the Bachmann OO version, but I'll be crossing my fingers and hoping that Revolution are giving N a Class 117 DMU for Christmas! Paul
  10. Teeside. Been told it went Southampton - Teeside. Regards, Paul
  11. Morning, I remember this running in late 2014 from Southampton Western Docks, but for the life of me can't remember where the final destination was. The salt was loaded on the sidings where the cars are unloaded, the ramps for the cars are off to the right of the MEAs in that first pic. I had the misfortune of leaving the docks with a liner train some hours after one of these salt trains. Trouble was it had rained! Being an open wagon, the MEA has small drainage holes in the floor so that rain water can run out and not turn the wagon into a bath. All open bo
  12. To be expected I suppose, as the OO ones were like that. What will be interesting to see, given they've fitted a Next18 socket, is will get more than directional lights on F0 only. OO had cab light, guard compartment and passenger saloon also across F2, 3 & 4. Regards, Paul

    Farish Due Soon

    Good point. I didn't even realise Farish made track! A quick search of the BachFar site shows that 379-454 is a 2nd Radius Curve of radius 263.5mm. I'll assume that's what they meant and breath a sigh of relief! Thanks, Paul

    Farish Due Soon

    Indeed, but I didn't think in N that 2nd radius was as big as 438mm. I thought for N it was around 300mm? Hence wondering if it was a typo. Maybe they meant 2nd radius N and not 438mm. I'm hoping they don't mean 438mm, as I've just built a nice fiddle yard with min 300mm curves :::( Kind Regards, Paul

    Farish Due Soon

    Well, haven't received my DBSOs yet, but an 'instruction' leaflet has appeared on the Bachmann website.... https://www.Bachmann.co.uk/dbdocument/1010/F7465 Mk2f DBSO A5.pdf Seems minimum radius for these is 438mm! Ouch. Please note: This model has been designed to run on curves of no less than 2nd Radius (438mm). We recommend that you don’t use anything smaller as this may result in the model derailing. Just noticed this on the TSO paperwork as well, buried in the bottom corner however. Do we think this is a typo from the OO model, or is N gauge getting
