  1. To borrow some phraseology from Dame Edna. We might be getting long in the tooth, and things may fade into memory - yet we still have our juices! And you, kind sir, you have stirred my pot, and my juices are flowing.
  2. I always liked the Dapol figures, and like you, I always felt they were way too big. It was an all over too bigness. The heavy mob! Anymore grumpy replies/comments, and I will send the boys round. lol
  3. Hi Del, indeed I was. I did purchase a set, and took a good look at it. I thought it had some merit, but like you, I was concerned with-it's robustness. I also thought it had to many parts to "go wrong." In fairness though, I did not test one in situ.
  4. There is only one tool, and I don't know how we managed without it for so long - Xuron track cutter. The most useful tool I ever bought.
  5. I don't know, get some heat in her, and some oil and grease, she'd get you away okay - bless her.
  6. The cheap, brightly coloured ones were marketed under holiday village names, and sold over here for very high prices. They were for people to run through their made up Christmas tonwnscene. They were usually sold a piece per month sort of plan. One month a loco and a piece of track, next month a boxcar and a piece of track. I'm not totally convinced thet the two are the same, but they are a quality item, and they run superbly. Michael.
  7. Just sometimes, the madness is the other way round. I just bid on, and won a very nice, used but in good shape Aristo-Craft, G scale 0-4-0 with slope-back tender, with metal wheels, and included, a bobber caboose. In a different livery than this one, and a little older, but I only paid $36 for it, with $15 shipping. They guy did not know what he had, not even the makers name! I can't wait to get my hands on it. http://www.trainz.co...ELAID=611029926 Now that's what ebay is about.B)
  8. If the wheel bases of the a 0-4-2t or 0-4-4t are equal too, or less than, the 0-6-0 then they will definitely go! If bigger than the 0-6-0, then perhaps no.
  9. What a terrific thread, and with some truly astounding photographs. I thank you all for contributing.
  10. If a train that used to be used had toilets, and a replacement train that is going to be used instead, but does not have toilets, then the toilet facility is being removed. Although no physical work by a plumber has been done to remove the pan. This is also news worthy, the public needs to know that what has always been part of a service, is now no longer part of said service. You cannot condemn a news agency for spreading the word.
  11. Ah, but no but yea but - Dennis, did you not see this - "kept in a temperature and humidity contorted environment" and no doubt at great expense.
  12. Info needed. Insulfrog or livefrog? Screwdriver between which two rails? Any chance of a diagram?
