This Signature Left Intentionally Blank, but since I have written this and I intended to do it, this Signature is intentionally not blank. Paradox or What?

Lidl are selling various DIY tools and accessories from Thursday 6th June. Anyone doing any layout wiring may find the scotch lock type connectors & croc clips useful. The 8 brush pack for £2.99 could be useful for painting,cleaning or ballasting.

There's a problem with the Rails of Sheffield website if you are in Spain. No link to this shop has worked for about a year. The link given here also does not work, and when I click on it the following message appears on the screen:

This site can’t provide a secure connection

railsofsheffield.com uses an unsupported protocol.
ERR_SSL_VERSION_OR_CIPHER_MISMATCH

The client and server don't support a common SSL protocol version or cipher suite. This is likely to be caused when the server needs RC4, which is no longer considered secure.


I did send Rails an email, as this problem effectively prevents anyone in Spain buying from them. Rails did reply with the message that I must be using an out of date computer ! But I've tried their page using Windows XP, 7 & 10 without success. The Spanish Internet service it must be stated is "sold" in an unusual way, in "Bandwidth" chunks. The more bandwidth you want the more you pay per month. And if you want a Fibre Optic Connection the main provider (the national telephone company) told me I would have to pay around £1000 extra to be connected !!!

Sometimes it can be the firewall you are using gives that message. If you can, try turning off the firewall

It was my birthday at the weekend and as someone gave me some money, I bought 2 of the new Hornby R6869 John Lovering & Co No.1 5 Plank Open China Clay Wagons.
They are VERY CHEAP from Antics online at only £6.70 each and including the £4 delivery they only came to £17.40 for the 2.
That's only £8.70 each delivered!
If I remember rightly these are around £15 EACH everywhere else!! :D

They may have other wagons cheaper than anywhere else, but I was only after the china clay wagons so didn't look.
Thanks

Morning all,I haven't read all of this topic as there are quite a few pages.Late last year,I purchased from a large retailer on Merseyside,you all know who I mean,a Bachmann 31-127 Class 30xx ROD for the then bargain price of £59.00.This item duly went out of stock.This morning whilst browsing the website they now have 4 brand new ones in stock at the 'bargain' price of £129.95 ! Seems mine was a bargain.
