I DON'T KNOW,

I DON'T HAVE 2020 VISION

 

I’ll use that...

I used that in a job interview in 2017. Only they asked about 3 years, not 1.

I've reached the stage where, if I were asked that, the only honest answer would be "retired".

I am of the generation where retirement is something I'm unlikely to ever be able to do. They'll just keep increasing the retirement age as I get close and closer...

My boss and I enjoy filling out the ‘what will you do to make yourself suitable for your next post’ bit in my annual career review ‘cos we both know that it’s all about me teaching others. (HR wind-up mode)

About 38 yrs ago I had the BR ‘where do you see yourself in 5 years question’: it was clear that my answer was insufficiently ambitious. It was however, correct!!!

Bit more weathering to do plus sort out why the tender is looking 'blotchy'.

Rolled up canvas screen to do, real coal in tender needs adding.

This loco turns out to be one of my best running one, steady and smooth at slow speed....

Just brought an Oxford Dean Goods, was looking at your mods, but can't seem to find loco crew particularly seated fireman in ModelU GWR Listing

When I brought the figure when first released I an sure it was of a driver reversing a loco to which I turned him around, added a shovel to turn him into a fireman looking out the side for a signal!!!!

Now having a look on the Modelu site he is their but now the opposite way around.

I'm wandering if my configuration has been changed to the current one - number 903

 

This is my crew

Looks like Alan handed it so the driver is now seated, facing forward whilst on the regulator!!!!!

 

Am I one of only a few with a 'special edition collectors issue'.....

I've always used the Pressfix transfers for GW locos and stock. It's been a bit tight on some,  so perhaps buffer beams have been squeezed a bit by some manufacturers.

However the farm workers are far from spoilt - do they have to fetch water in buckets to fill that trough daily? (I see no stand-pipe)

Perhaps it's rainwater filled.  Farm labourers are a cost, sheep are an investment, hence the sheep get treated better...
