  2. Always find it a bit sad when I realise someone no longer visits/posts on RMweb. Those I have been used to seeing on a regular basis. Just discovered another. It's life I know....

      Change possibly brings some to come or go. For me the new look is harder to navigate and I'm finding it less attractive to use the site, which is a shame

      It certainly is, the balast was going down on Saturday, and they were hoping to put the turntable in on Sunday. We saw an interesting use of a blow torch to make effects on the grass.

      that would be good we started at 19kgs per mile in January and are now at 26kgs per mile - definatley not more diesels - or if if must be then a Warship or a Western - as for woodburners - good fun, but much harder than coal

      Your galleries are excellent, I hope that you put more up, especially Verwood if you have got ones there.
