  1. Hi Phill,

    The remnants of Talacre are re-appearing as the Saltney Railway now, so we'll do our best to keep the spirit going. Struggling for space a bit though....!

      I know, I know but after a shift at work I come home to do a bit of modelling and I have to walk past my bench while plastering/painting/fitting new radiators/fittng new curtain rails etc...my bench seems to whisper as I go past "leave that and sitdown here instead, you know you want to....:(

  4. "Lining"..."transfers".....two words that I no longer think should be seen in the same sentence..now where's me lining pen? Could't possibly look any worse, even if it's me that's working it....

      I wonder if we'd be saying the same thing if an Earth day had the same length as one on Venus! oO

  10. 1800hrs..1 hour to go at the PSB then off for 9 days. The soldering iron will need a rest at the end of it!!

      I'll reply to your pm tomorrow :)

  11. 2 weeks annual leave? Where the 'eck did THEY just go? Starting back on a 12 hour sunday shift doesn't help either...

  12. 3 line blockages and 2 T3s on a monday night...more like a saturday night! Interrupting me modelling time. 12 hour Night shifts....tsk...

  13. 4 days in with the Statins break. Less muscle/joint pains, sleeping better, less lifeless. Even feeling a bit stronger. They can't be that bad surely?

      Yea, go herbal and watch the diet mate, but keep an eye on the levels, Statins are not the silver bullet!

      Got tendonitis whilst on Simvastatin. GP swiched me to Atorvastaton (much more expensive to NHS) and no problems since

    4. Danemouth


      My GP also switched me to Atorvastaton as I had the same problems as you.

  14. 4 Heljan class B tankers numbered...just got to summon up the courage to weather them now.!

  16. 45231 about to park up outside my 'box to take coal..should have been Tangmere I think but I wouldn't have risked a s***c** in the tamper siding!

  17. 47727 on the Baglan-Chirk logs tonight..47s on freight...vaguely remember that...

  18. 56094 on the "logs" to Chirk this evening. Jeez I'd forgotten what they sound like. Lovely.

    1. newbryford


      Same here - passed me on a 1 in 120ish gradient.

  19. 56113 failed on Gresford Bank on 6M54. Poor driver has to tie it down, get a taxi from Gresford to Crewe, get a spare loco, drive it to Wrexham via Salop and go and rescue his own train. Not what you come to work for really! At least he knows where his detonator protection is.....
