Ok,

 

Hold a workshop, determine the purpose of your exhibit..

That's where they went wrong, no mission statement.

I've just seen a forum banner advert for Rails of Sheffield offering 37040 with TTS sound for less than £80.

 

'Sounds' like a bargin.

Until you consider the amount of work required to get a Hornby Railroad 37 looking and running as well as a Bachmann or ViTrains.

I'd bin the speaker too.

 

 

Oh, and the chip.

‘Diesels in Derby’

 

I’ve just spent the last couple of days at the Railway Technical Centre, Derby. As well as constant shunting of test trains with 08s/ 73s & 37s adjacent to our building there was also a pair of 50’s stabled at the station.

Very civilised.

Spent 4 years working in a building on the RTC Business Park. Very strange to be working and hearing an 08 clank past or suddenly realising that the view out if the window had disappeared in thick black smoke when an old blue box was started up. More than one fire too, which was interesting!

Quite why there’s a Brunel House in Derby is a bit beyond my understanding.

That was the very building I worked in.

So I found myself at the Barrow Hill Rail Ale festival today.

 

A highly civilised way to spend a Friday especially with such nice weather.

 

An unexpected treat was a ride behind ex BZ machine 37521, I really wasn’t expecting that.

I was asked if I’d be modelling the loco in its current livery.

 

Er?

 

No!
