See Britain by Rail

Stumbled over an old Pathe film regarding British Rail Tourism, dates to 1927.
Very historic. Very.

Re: UK or Bust 2020

As someone remarked, "spoilt for choice." Wonder if the company would mind me taking a year or two off. Does this make any sense? Day 1 London: wife wants to see the changing of the guards. Maybe I could squeeze in the London Transport Museum while they stand in the rain. Done plenty of ma...

Fabulous set up. Embodies a real sense of Kansas.

Fascinating bit of aviation modeling.

Re: New layout

Thank you for that- a sinewy twist from one line to another, flawlessly.
Sound effects most excellent, too.

Re: Layout number three

Looking good. I always marvel at the preponderance of point-to-points in
the UK. Very rarely done in the US. To the automobile, however, I say "Nuts!"

(Then again, my un-garaged automobile looks like it has been rolled over
and used for dray service. The OO looks good, though).

Re: UK or Bust 2020

I think by now you should be getting the impression that there is just too much to pack into one visit. Plan to come again and see the things you missed on this trip. I fear you are quite correct. One could spend 9 days in London, 9 days in just about any spot you could stick a pin into. I've got t...

Re: UK or Bust 2020

A trove of information, thank you many times over. Below is a link to a Time Team Special regarding Stonehenge. Perhaps you've already seen it. I was rather bowled over by it, as I was of the traditional teachings regarding this astonishing site. By the end of the documentary I thought to myself tha...

Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout - Stage 3 Building

The photo of the chimney is most evocative. I am having some trouble, upon close inspection, determining if it is a model of a graduated chimney, or a prototype reference photograph? There is such an intimate variation of colors, washes, moss, cracks, tints that I am inclined to believe this is a pr...

Re: UK or Bust 2020

Always delightful how passionate the Brits are about their football. As a pupil at the Shiplake Grammar School in '66 I was introduced to football, and was regularly beaten to a pulp. Those tykes were quite competitive. Thank you for the most useful information. Certainly "travel fatigue" ...
