  1. You could try the Hull Daily Mail Archive, you get a free searches so probably worth a try?
  2. Brian, 2, 4, 7. and 11 for me in this poll, top pick is the D16/3.
  3. My choice please:- 1. 4-4-2T GNR C12 3. 0-6-2T GNR N2 4. 0-6-2T MSLR N4/N5 .
  4. Look on:- https://brdatabase.info/locoqry.php?action=locodata&type=S&id=601027037&loco=1025 all the details are there.
  5. My choice would be the following, J6, J17, J39, J52, J67/J68/J69, GCR/LNER O4/8. Would buy them all if and when available RTR to current standards.
  6. 1, 6 & 7 would be my choice. 1 for my general use and 6 & 7 as above for engineers use.
  7. Nice to see your return to Scotland, Heljan have a variety of very nice diesels that suit and I'm looking forward to the development of the new scenario.
  8. Called Staly Vegas, Industrial North BR steam, all a shade of grey. My photo at Doncaster .
  9. I suspect that many people who commute these distances earn more than the ticket cost in a few minutes at the most and they have the benefit of having a full hour in front of their screen on the train, so probably covered the cost before the train even leaves the station.
  10. My selection:- 4, 6, 9, 10, 11 & 12. Focus choice 13, 4 Focus choice 14, 10
  11. I did 4 weeks training there in the hot summer of 1976 and a further 3 in the early 80's, it was just like what it was, an army barracks. The best thing was that the station was easily accessed from the camp and there were plenty of quick trains to London so I managed to get friendly with another course member and we went down to London every night and managed to get round the terminal stations to do a bit of spotting. With a couple of pints after they were enjoyable evenings and a quick return to barracks was ideal.
  12. The USA is a country and the EU isn't, hence the no borders in the USA and commonality of language over the state boundaries and the borders, with different languages each side, in Europe, despite the EU calling the individual countries "States"?
  13. 1,4,5,6,7. My choices, more variety of banana vans always welcome, fish vans useful and a variety of goods vans a staple.
  14. This is a brilliant idea, well done for bringing it to us. I think keeping it micro within the "standard" micro dimensions is the way to go, there is plenty of flexibility with the size and it also allows 2 things, relative attainability and the possibility of re-imagining what you can do in a small space, rather than going for a fixed oblong, as you don't have to use the maximum size. Looking forward to how this project develops.
