  1. A slightly over sized and out of era visitor to the yard at its last show
  2. Hornby the Northumbrian train pack in mint condition for 95 including postage.
  3. A fruitful couple of minutes in the sun a couple of days a go. Screenshots from a video so not great quality.
  4. Did think watching one of them struggle up the bank out of Parkway that someone needs to do a 00 version. Now to decide whether I want Alfred or Judy. It's a shame that they're not available separately in the light green livery.
  5. Those AI descriptions are awful. Always so much text to say so little.
  6. Taunton and Launceston Castle at Parkway last night
  7. A fun few hours chasing trains around Respryn as the Bodmin & Wendford timetable fell apart
  8. £120 for a loco described as surprisingly working after being dropped is a bit mad https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/285516412953?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=jtU0YS_vTr-&sssrc=4429486&ssuid=rzldvwtmrse&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY

  10. Not too shabby, dog doesn't mind either. Think I prefer this angle by the bridge though
  11. Yeh now it's Mr **** or Officer Cadet ****, by staff and other cadets. I shudder to think what would have happened if I'd called my CSGT staff RMAS has changed a lot recently, Gurkhas are still the stuff of myth and legend, although the Nepalese I learnt mainly revolved around getting extra scoff at meal times.
  12. Can promise you that at no point do you get called Sir by the instructors at Sandhurst anymore!
  13. Has anyone else had derailing issues with these on 3rd radius curves?
  14. Thank you, could you point out which are the gear tower clips so I know where to start? Instruction manual for this is long gone and it's the first time I've taken apart a Hornby diesel. Thanks
