Re: More eBay nonsense...........

While not as bad as that example he does seem to have a fair number of wagons listed for silly money

even if you win it for £5 you will still have to pay £6.50 P&P!

Re: Great Electric Train Show - 13th-14th October 2018

there should definitely be one cross aisle in rows of that length. Yes! that would really have helped, it was normally in the middle of the aisle that it got gridlocked so giving more movement would have been really helpful A couple of layouts seemed to be running their timetable in real-time witho...

Re: A Dead Decoder - But Weird ?
