  1. https://www.southwesternrailway.com/other/news-and-media/news/2021/april/train-issues-delay-island-line-reopening
  2. The Magnahesion version https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/124689185271
  3. Interestingly all the replies are about the subjects of layouts, rather than the design of them. Perhaps influenced by the OPs post rather than the title
  4. Not overpriced or mid-described, but what has happened to this innocent tank wagon? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Dapol-RAILWAYS-1994-BP-FUEL-TANKER-WAGON-00-GAUGE-5049-/233971411615?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286
  5. Did you get a free £15 box with it too?
  6. But scale models can be rideable toys. Look at 5” and especially 7 1/4” models
  7. Today I learnt that the collective noun for boxes is a rake...
  8. I really like that idea. Really it’s just a place name instead of a fiddle yard track number, but it adds to the illusion
  9. Something I found odd is that some of the DOD flatcars are marked as barrier/buffer cars. I get that they might need buffers cars, but why limit which cars they use (both for loads and for buffers)?
  10. Came across a photo in Scotland. 8 in this train!
  11. Slightly obscure question, is the chassis useful for anything else? Was wondering about using the hopper for a freelance narrow gauge model but the kit is a bit pricey to just stick half in the junk box.
  12. I do like the idea of using the door handle as a regulator, with the lock as directional selector. I’m sure it’s possible to do, but would require some electronic skills that are beyond me
  13. It ends with the same result tho, US sellers manage to not apply taxes that they shouldn’t.
  14. Someone upthread mentioned that buying from the EU into the UK is now the same as buying from the US has always been. In theory this is true, however the US doesn’t have VAT to be removed. US sellers seem much better at removing their state sales tax for sales to the UK presumably because they only apply it for sales within their state and so most online sales have no state tax.
