sounds a bit like a bag of grapefruits to me

Blackadder: It is said, Percy, that civilised man seeks out good and intelligent company, so that through learned discourse he may rise above the savage and closer to God.
Percy: Yes, I've heard that.
Blackadder: Personally, however, I like to start the day with a total dickhead to remind me I'm best!

Had a great chuckle today, ty.

I had a few spare minutes and went to town with the photoshop plugins on one of my old paintings. Only missing lens flare and plastic wrap! :)
I loved all the old big 4 posters and would like to try and get that feel into our route.

Not quite there yet with my loading screen.

Haggerdly Eases Back In

Haggerleases Plan


Any idea whether the sidings would have been in situ during our 50s era?  Bob has gone from a 1939 map and we are not sure how long they lasted.
Any advice from folks would be appreciated.

We have 01 cab pics!

Thanks to Sly for grabbing me some much needed shunter cab action.

always nice to have a couple of projects on the side, now that the tennis is over.

Summer sport just gets in the way of trains.
