Re: Vandal Update

I don’t need to know this, but that’s just my opinion. Responses to this new discussion need to be extremely temperate or I can see it going the way of the last one. Having spent 35 years working within the Criminal Justice system, this does not surprise me although it is disappointing. It is inter...

Re: Vandal Update

Nothing like a caring parent, and this is nothing like a caring parent. On the other hand, maybe the parent (legal guardian) in question has had enough of bad behaviour.

Re: Ideas on second hand coach stock

More or less as Bigmet says, very little real world damage inflicted on models looks like model damage. But a bit tatty round the edges, poor condition paint work, or non runners due to bogie and axle damage can mean a bit cheaper and so you are less reluctant to wade in with the razor saw and craf...

Re: K1 decoder

If I ever am able to afford another sound decoder, (for my K1) the socket would go and then the posts that it's fitted to. I'd hardwire an MX645 and probably cut the coal floor out to get a 23mm round speaker in, then fit a new floor with real coal. There's absolutely nothing like real coal. All Ho...

Re: Wanton Vandalism of layouts

What are these 'referral orders they mention? Are they like probation? Punishment to fit the crime? Compulsory supervised attendance at a local model railway club and make them build a layout, let them see how much time and work is needed to create something to exhibition standard. Jim That could b...

Those of us with long memories know that you lost your credibility on here years ago with your rants and threats to other members!

Re: Wanton Vandalism of layouts

What are these 'referral orders they mention? Are they like probation? It's OK, I googled it and thought it was little more than a slap on the wrist. The spirit of it is, I think pretty good but why two warnings for non compliance? I can understand that keeping them out of prison is a good idea, bu...

Well that's something I never thought of doing :roll: I'll try that next time I want a roof. Have you ever looked at something that someone's invented and thought, 'why didn't I think of that.'

Will you two pack it in! I can't afford either of these two loco's at the moment and when I looked in the mirror I noticed I've gone green. :wink: Sorry about that.
