  1. Funker Vogt Date of Expiration https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TqwjQWAzMpM Feel The Pain https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RVSWriPOtNY The second one is very stompy lol
  2. I'll definitely have to come down and have a ride on the line again at some point. Last time it was a quick hop over the Solent on an Island Liner ticket, out to Smallbrook then a return trrip on the rao;way, then back to Smallbrook, to Shanklin then back to Ryde Pier for the ferry back to Portsmouth. It's nice to travel in vintage rolling stock rather than the ubiquitous mk1, although I managed that on the SWML in 2002 when I went to see a rugby match in Cardiff and there were loco hauled trains working the rugby specials. On that occasion the return journey had a mk1 in the rake so that's where I sat. Deep joy
  3. Well I think the VoR gives us an idea of how that might have looked https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.hippostcard.com%2Flisting%2Fvale-of-rheidol-railway-train-in-aberystwyth-station%2F22457429&psig=AOvVaw2V4L0hxdPRJDChWg51PsM-&ust=1581107689417000&source=images&cd=vfe&ved=0CA0QjhxqFwoTCNDBpqjjvecCFQAAAAAdAAAAABAD
  4. Yes I saw that briefly. I was driving a (heritage) bus at the time though
  5. Also known as "More paperwork than is good for you". It's different for everyone, however in my particular case that starts and ends at writing my name. That said "reviewing the review of a re-examination of the amended version of the original timetable proposals" sounds like a classic line from yes, Prime Minister
  6. The bridge is still there (complete with road on it) Or rather it was when I was last there.
  7. In BR days it was often those most joyous class 141s A crowded pacer on jointed track though. Recipe for nausea. Imagine the scene when someone gets a sticky earful...
  8. Hi. I've been following the youtube videos for a while now. It's given me a bit of inspiration but I haven't the space to start building anything just yet, perhaps the new year will mean I can get something running even if it is just a temporary thing. I was particularly interested in the scenery building as anything I build will be very suburban so lots of green space. I look forward to any updates. I might poke my head in at Warley club soon as I live in Rugby now so its not all that far
  9. Yes I used to work for Brighton and Hove, we used to get the radio call, often quite sarcastic "Southern have broken their train set again" was a good one. But generally it was either that or a text message via the GPS system., It meant if you were a 6 or a 7 you got away from Brighton station double quick or you risked being inundated.
  10. Do you remember the burning smell when an HST had its brakes applied? It was pretty horrible.
  11. That just reminded me of Nice 'n' Tidy as devised by a certain Vivian Stanshall
  12. You might be interested in this one. I didn't know it was him though. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-50035065
  13. That's good, as this one looks like it has good potential
