  1. Happy days for sure! And yes 47s were pretty good too... Thanks for the kind comments - we will be back with Mk2, getting so many projects completed with COVID isolation.... Cheers Phil
  2. That was brilliant! @Pierre Le Brun and I had a great day out! When can we not do it again please?
  3. Talk to Jimbo if you blank on here Simon
  4. Cheers. Might have to try something similar .... currently using these https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Female-Molex-1-25-to-Male-JR-Servo-Extension-Micro-Plug-X2/302067142995 Phil
  5. Cheers! I have a total of 8 .... none of which want to power up! Can I ask how you have connected the servo to the switchpilot as connections are not compatible ....
  6. And perhaps D812 wasnt so inspirational. But who could fail to be impressed by a train hailed by Rapid, Thruster or Vanquisher? I can still recite all the names from D800 to D870,,,,,
  7. Off to Sainsburys shortly for essential shopping - including cake ingredients. Fortunately we dont need flour....
  8. And took over 20 years to recover. The early 70s felt like the bottom of the pit although perhaps the threatened closure of the S&C in the 80s was the true nadir ... and may be a turning point.
  9. From my own experience how much easier does a Luton with tail lift make these forays???? Cracking....
  10. Hi folks Wonder if aniyone has any words of wisdom please on the HK5320 Ultra Micro Digital servos.... https://www.amazon.co.uk/HK-5320-Ultra-Micro-Digital-0-05sec-orangeRX/dp/B01JS7LO00 Am trying to use them for signals controlled by the ESU Switchpilot servo accessory decoder. Standard 9G servos are fine and power up when connected to the decoder and can be set up using the direct programming buttons ... but not the HK5320s. Am I missing something? Thanks in advance Phil
  11. Yes I know ... hee hee .... but it was a dark night on the Nantgerredig beat of Afon Towi and I was totally focused on connecting with one of the silver welsh ghosts - Sea trout AKA sewin. Just popped a mint in and bit on it without thinking....crack! And the only thing I landed all night was a rock .... about 6" square .... which the locals thought was hilarious, they told me they put in the river especially for English visitors. Pah! They didnt catch anything either.
  12. Hang on, better check with SWMBO what they are...... Its bound to include me washing up afterwards!
  13. Only ever cracked teeth on mint imperials..... never touch the blasted things again!
  14. A very handy configuration! Likely to rerail any spontaneous derailments approaching right line....
  15. This cant be a proper model railway show with all this talk of bath! Are not all attendees supposed to remain unwashed for at least a week beforehand? Clive has it right he's going to turn up stinking of horsey poo after that long journey.....
  16. And cockles and pork scratchings - probably better than anchovies and gherkins.....
  17. Mr Icke used to play in goal for Hereford United - remember his appearances against Worcester City. He was whacky even then.....
  18. For those not visiting Abbotswood Junction on Sunday....Courtesy of @Pierre Le Brun Please dont show all tickets ..... anyone found not attempting to bunk by hiding in the bog will be forced to watch all episodes of The Great Model Railway Challenge...
  19. Had a debate with Andy as to whether there could be some Millionaires shortbread in the raffle. Conclusion is transport is a problem.... So there will have to be virtual cake ...... with recipe! Just debating how we can get the smell down broadband....
  20. Postie has just delivered essential supplies for the Pub Quiz.... ok it ain’t from SWAGonia but it’s very good. Will share a virtual bottle with all on the evening. Now just need to get in supplies of cockles and pork scratching..... Just noticed that cider is 8% abv! No coherent answers from me then ....
