Ginsters are crap. Wrong sort of pastry, too greasy, much too small now and don't do GF ones. The owner is a T##y  donor. Just needed you to know that. Any thing that has a crimped top can not be a Pasty.

I wouldn't touch a Ginsters with anything shorter with a bargepole, I had a mate that worked at the factory, note, not a bakery, he said they should be done under the trade descriptions act for saying there was 'meat' in it. I also worked there, temping in the office and the cost of producing them,  reflected his observations 20 years earlier.

Can you get left handed pasties?

There was once a legend that a left-handed pasty, bought from a corner shop at five minutes to midnight on a night with no rain, would entitle you to stand for election as Mayor of Horrocksford, but I don't really believe all those old wive's tales.

When you started on about a corner shop doorway at five minutes to midnight , then mentioned an election, I wondered which way the story was going!

Urgent message from Dr Creasy (CMO) :  All parcels , especially those containing 94xx models, should be sprayed with IPA and not opened for at least a fortnight.....stay safe!

Also getting there is their LMS long low wagon, now painted in Railmatch LMS grey. The floor was done in my usual way using Lifecolor and AK products.

Top job on the floor, Rob. 

 

We like a nice bit of weathered wood.

Yup. Can't beat some really grotty stains and suspicious skid marks. I have discovered these 'Life Colours' for wagons/vans and smaller stuff. Not dared to go near a Loco yet though!
