“Highland Sulzers” - Inverness TMD in the 80's - P4

Now pretty much all connected up to the tag strip. The loose blue and orange wires are for the switchblades when they go in and the yellow wires are for the two common crossings.

A bit more wiring will be required; the connections to the fiddle yard and the point motors, but this is basically it.

Ive just played Fat City Blues Band 

 

What a great band and CD 

 

Probably best listened to with a Malt Whisky and sitting in a red leather chair (have you still got the chair)

Tel,
 

They came to Stafford and played in the Gatehouse I think? Some of us went but I can’t remember who?

 

Yes the chairs here - it had a refurb a few years ago.

It still remains the only reclining one I’ve ever seen.

Glad it has given good service and it still looks great.

Looks great, very neat. Nothing worse than what resembles a rats nest on the  under side of the boards! 
Cheers,

Bill. 


Thank you

 

I just feel it helps with reliability and also if you do have a fault it should be clearer where to look...

Very true. Having neat, well organised wiring to start with generally means less problems later on. 
enjoying following the progress and looking forward to seeing it in the flesh at some point in the future.

The Blues band, great British band, lead by Paul Jones (ex Manfred Man), fantastic vocals and harmonica.  I have also seen them at 'The gatehouse' we were probably together, I know my Jane was there.

Well,  We didnt go out much once we had the kids, so as Emily was born in 1195 it would suggest before that.  We did get sitters so its not impossible that it was after that just less likely.   How does that sound?

Just exactly how old is your daughter, does the Guinness Book of Records know?

Ask Emily if Richard 1 was a decent king.

 I could edit, and then anyone looking would think "what are they on about "

 

Happy to take my typo on the chin, sorry 1995.

Well it beats modelling.

 

On a separate note - I keep getting adverts for glasses on this website - is someone trying to tell me something about my modelling?

Found it - 37 114 was repainted in the Large Logo in July 1984.
