      Hmm I was led to believe that it wasn’t supposed to go off. So I’m assuming that this wasn’t an unmitigated success.

      Apparently the idea was that they were trying to do a slow burn on the contents and the 76 year old Torpex was feeling a bit frisky!

      That's the problem with 76-year olds; when they feel frisky they fall apart.

  2. I must have spent an hour on the net looking for ETS jumpers for the ends of my Mk1 Bullion Van. Is it i can't see the wood for the trees or does no one make them?

  3. A U2 at Mildenhall? Who we spying on now?

      Mildenhall is getting a new lease of life as they are moving everything from Spangdahlem Air Base which is now closing with the result that Mildenhall keeping at least one Air Refueling Wing and one Special Operations Wing.

  4. Come on Boris. Get well soon.

      I pray he does - otherwise the consequences for a certain country who unleashed this virus on the world, could be nuclear...

    2. Boris


      I'm fine darling

    3. truffy


      @Boris, glad to see that reports of your death have been greatly exaggerated.

  5. OO gauge inside. G gauge and a full size signalling simulation outside and I have to stay at home. I may cope. 

  6. Does the MOD still have ramp wagons to go with it's WAFLATS and WARWELLS?

  7. Asymmetrical braking success! Soon my model railway wont need me.

    1. SHMD


      Why? Who else is going to pay for it?

    2. LNERGE


      A good observation. It will gain the same status as the Wife, just attracting my attention when things need paying for. 

  8. Where did that spring go from that adaptor base? It'll show up i guess probably jamming the mechanism on a loco or similar... No i've just knelt on it.

  9. I have a kit of parts for a Westinghouse signal machine on my workbench. I also have stress levels off the scale and some bits left.

  10. It must be heading towards winter... The model railway has seen it's first movements since April. 

    1. Hroth


      Hope you sent a pilot engine around with a brush to dislodge the spiders!

  11. Just about to install a third intermediate token machine in section. This has to be fairly unique in this day and age?

  12. I know i'll change a defective point motor for one with exactly the same fault on the hottest day of the year. That'll be fun.

    2. LNERGE


      No thread as such i'm afraid. You can PM me by all means.

    3. SHMD


      Thanks, I will as I am most interested.

      (This might take a day or two though!)

  14. Cables on, links in, fuses in and...

      Did somebody forget metal mickey I wonder? Saying the Driver didn't receive prior advice of the EROS is irrelevant, he might well have booked on before it was imposed.
