The only thing missing for me is the word Fish on the side but I don't have any and not quite sure where it would go, my gut feeling is that it would be above the LMS in small font, going to leave for now.

 

We really do need the groan button back please! :D

Try the pub?  

 

Most helpful especially as I was trying to throw them a line.

I suppose I could use a very long line that could reach the pub!!!

 

Don't worry I go elsewhere and moor up.

A train spotters paradise, almost real.  A flask of tea and some sandwiches and I could spend the rest of the day along side you taking pictures.

 

 

Tizer please and some sweaty cheese & tomato sandwiches on white bread made by my Mum, all carried in my duffel bag, happy days.

Bizarrely enough, about 7.30 this morning I had a conversation that ended on duffel bags. My sister had one that was about twice as old as she was and used it for carrying her belongings to and from work on her motorcycle. She collected a refurbished carburettor for her fiance one evening and set off home. The cord on the duffel bag snapped and the bag shot down the road. That was the end of it, but importantly, the carburettor was fine.

Duffel bags are apparently fashionable once more and originals are quite valuable.

Back OT, I really like the rough grass between the farm yard and the railway.

Is that all static grass? I have a lot of grass and undergrowth to do myself and it isn't something that I have tackled for a very long time.

The grass is isolated clumps of Noch grass matting with static grass in between, sometimes a second layer to give additional depth.

Then scatter material is either rub into the static grass (when dry) to go to the base to form another shade, or built up to form ground cover weeds or finally area over sprayed with hair spray and grass scatter sprinkled on....the trick is to get a mixture of grass appearances so it doesn't look like a mat, do not just use one material unless of course you are doing a bowling green....
