Re: 7f, derby lightweights and class 85

It's not the thought of limited editions, let the mugs pay over the odds, a blue 7F, it makes me shudder at the thought of it - yuk. I collect die cast models of Airliners in 1:200 scale, and often, the only way to get what you want is to buy the very limited runs that the likes of Inflight 200 pro...

Re: Heljan Class 86

I saw the Freightliner 86605 yesterday and it looked OK except for the pantograph - what a howler, and I am not the most fussy of modelers either!! Instead I bought a rather beautious looking Hornby model of the 'Brit' Firth Of Clyde complete with all the extra bits such as extra coal to fill the em...

Re: Eastleigh 100

Thank Gowd I wasn't in any of those pictures!! I was at the night shoot thingimybobber on Saturday night and got the early access tickets for every day, so I was able to avoid some of the hell of having to wait for people to get out of my shot. Oh yes and also at the end of the days, as people were ...

Re: What is your favourite diesel loco?

Speaking of boats... I could never see the appeal of Deltics either. Probably the only EE product I have no interest in. (I can hear the cries of 'BURN HIM' from here!) I know, all I can think of when I see them is DRRRROOOOOONNNNNNEEEEEEEE ...ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ. Westerns ANY day, sorry, but it has...

Re: What is your favourite diesel loco?

WESTERN!!, amazingly good looking (I liked the Deltics when I was about 10, before realising there was much more interesting traction out there), they were the first of the really really popular classes to go, having their lives cut so tragically and needlessly short, right in the prime of their liv...

Re: What is your favourite diesel loco?

Yep, the Westerns were THE KINGS!!

They even were withdrawn in 1977, just as the KING was, for Pete's sake!! :lol:

Re: What is your favourite diesel loco?

I'm an electric person through and through, but, I must admit I've always liked the .......WESTERNS AND WARSHIPS!! Also the class 73s as well as the Thumpers of the Southern Region and Northern Ireland!! A class 37 on the West Highland sleeper also comes high up. Everything else is just pish, especi...

Re: cricket players

But that would involve thawing the ice a little! :lol:

Anyway, in a proper curling pond, it wouldn't be deep enough!!
Tis a nice idea though.

Re: cricket players

Actually, coming to think about it, I could fit one of those magnetic mechanisms (use for road vehicles, etc) underneath so that the stone and players moved down the sheet!! :lol: :lol:

Re: cricket players

If I had a layout, I, naturally, would have a frozen Curling pond complete with a game being played, drams and all.
