I’m very much looking forward to getting to see the layout at Glasgow. So long as I can sneak off Rannoch for long enough!

You won't be sorry given his current weather-controlling skills...

Oi, If you are sneaking off anywhere I hope it is to give me a break from Dave's new train set.

 

Hi Grahame and team, I too am attending the Glasgow show as an (the) operator on my mate's new layout, called Top Yard. On Saturday he told me it still wasn't finished, so I may be demonstrating how to build a small layout in three days. Any tips after your telly appearance?

 

See you all on Thursday evening.

Glasgow is wet and windy. No time for stargazing.

Enjoyed watching Shap yesterday.  I quite liked the  Shap Summit viewpoint and watching the bankers come off and back down to ‘Tebay’.  (Easier to get in to see as well!).  The train listing was very helpful too.  Well done folks: good modelling and good entertainment too.

Wet and windy ….. at one point I thought that the roof of Hall 4 at the SEC was about to join us in the exhibition!

Was it my imagination or do the steam locos get more and more weathered as the sequence progresses?

 

I think I saw the whole sequence today, very enjoyable to watch even if the 50 at the end has been involved in an accident and now has wonky buffers

I have caused one or two rough shunts, but I don’t recall arse-ending anything with the Hoover.

That only happens on the Down line going up hill not the Up Line going down hill.

Preliminary examination of D400 did not detect any wonky / damaged buffers. EE Type 4 was observed to have a buffer that had popped out of its mounting when setting up on Thursday so may be a case of mistaken identity?

Exactly so (and well spotted). There are one or two locos still awaiting the weathering shop but generally we do indeed try to weather according to era, usually based on a representative photo or two.

That would be because I had already straightened one and unjammed the other.    Not, I might add, by judicious use of a high speed rear impact either.

Ah, a high speed full-frontal impact then...
