  1. Cheers for the advice, the radiator is turned to minimum as it’s my office as well. Can’t do with being too warm.
  2. Cracking model of a GSM-R installation, great detailing and judging from some of Martin’s photos, it’s been accurately portrayed. https://3dprintingcorner.co.uk/product/176-gsm-r-mast/ Karl
  3. I’ve had a couple of weeks off work due to stress & depression, so as a bit of therapy I was instructed by my good lady wife to spend some time on my layout. Things are starting to come together and begin to look what I had envisaged. Below is the car park under the interchange, it’ll be fully loaded with vehicles eventually. And the bus station and the footbridge across to the rail station with the sort of traction that will be running. LNER HSTs, Northern DMUs, Trans Pennine express (awaiting the Mk5s) and a GBRf 66 (66756 - Royal Corps of Signals), my old corps that I spent 18 years serving in. Regards Karl

  6. The base of the bus part of the interchange has now been constructed, there will be 5 stands with a car-park underneath and a footbridge linking to the railway station. It's made out of 3mm ply with a trim from B&Q for the wall.
  7. Last night whilst watching television I said to the wife "You know what you're the absolute double of Jennifer Anniston". She gave me a cheeky grin and said "Really?" I said, "Yes sweetheart she's 9 stone and you're 18". I truly appreciated everything the Lancashire Ambulance service did for me last night!
  8. I've just got a job making plastic Draculas, There are only two of us on the production line. So I have to make every second Count....
  9. There was an old man who lived by a forest. As he grew older and older, he started losing his hair, until one day, on his deathbed, he was completely bald. That day, he called his children to a meeting: He said. “Look at my hair. It used to be so magnificent, but it’s completely gone now. My hair can’t be saved. But look outside at the forest. It’s such a lovely forest with so many trees, but sooner or later they’ll all be cut down and this forest will look as bald as my hair. What I want you to do." The man continued. "Is, every time a tree is cut down or dies, plant a new one in my memory. Tell your descendants to do the same. It shall be our family’s duty to keep this forest strong." So they did.
