  1. I've been delaying getting a Bachmann 9F for a while, so I'll be interested to see how the Hornby one turns out. I've just ordered a rake of the KR Models Consett Iron Ore wagons so I'm hoping that one of the manufacturers will do a Tyne Dock to Consett 9F in 2022...
  2. Sorry to read this but it does sound like a positive prognosis, just definitely not the sort of thing you want to go through (and especially not at this time of the year)! Definitely take solace in the fact it’s over the rubbish golfing weather. Best wishes to you for a speedy recovery once they get you into surgery.
  3. Gordon, sorry to hear about Archie. Now's definitely not the time to get a new one, though - from what I've heard, pedigree dog (or designer dog, like Cockapoo etc) prices have sky-rocketed during lockdown - some are selling at three times the pre-Covid19 prices. My Mac has Gill Sans included in its software as standard (Pages etc) - worth checking your Mac out (I seem to remember you had a Mac too?)
  4. This one popped up completely randomly on YouTube earlier while I was looking for something completely different. Obviously you might need to wait a week or two to be able to get the supplies for this one...
  5. Just as an afterthought, I went to look in my bookcase. Julian Holland’s Discovering Scotland’s Lost Railways has a section on the line between Connel Ferry and Ballachulish including a nice shot of Kentallen, as well as the terminus at Ballachulish.
  6. Hi Warren, great to see things progressing and some beautiful buildings there! I popped up to Loch Linnhe last weekend - we’d planned to ski at Glencoe on Saturday but the weather put paid to that. We stayed at the Holly Tree Inn at Kentallen, which my fiancée had booked without realising it was a former station on the Ballachulish spur of the Callander and Oban railway. I only realised when I walked down the hotel’s main corridor and noticed two large bay windows similar to the architecture of stations like Arrochar and Tarbet. Kentallen station had a steamer pier too.
  7. I think my love of the A3 came from spending holidays at my great aunt's in Deal and riding on the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway behind Green Goddess!
  8. Think I would have scored 4, maybe 5... Great to see trains moving and between this and the fact that our loft has had some flooring put down now, it’s maybe starting to give me a little inspiration back too!
  9. I’ve tried that before. Definitely didn’t reach the distance. I was lucky if I hit it into the foreground...
  10. I can also recommend Mixbook - have had photobooks from them and they have regular discount codes too. www.mixbook.com - as above, no affiliation other than satisfied customer.
