Second that - really glad I got involved this time!

Thanks Geoff!

Safely home for Christmas, well done all of us, we have now added to our somewhat diminished library of piccies, and Geoff can direct the cargo to it's original destination :wink:
I like the idea of the coach and each adding a figure, or perhaps an item of luggage.

My first tour and much enjoyed, gave me a reason to advance my layout! Thanks to all.
I need the next tour to push me into the next phase of my layout! :D

My full apologies for dropping out and not responding. Family illnesses raised their ugly heads late last year and the beginning of this one culminating in a couple of sad losses so modelling activity has been zero for a few months now. Hoping things are better going forward.

Again my apologies

Hi Matt C,

Not a problem, we just by-pass where for whatever reason communications fail.

I'm up for one but let's start it in the Autumn when less people are likely to be away on holiday.

By all means Bufferstop, however, we need to start talking about the subject now, as it will take till then, to agree what it will be!
We should start a thread and discuss

How about a little sheep or animal who can have a ride or sit on peoples layouts? A cat?

We're coming into the 'Dark' times !!
I think we need another traveller, be it wagon of some sort, or as suggested an animal.
A Tiger in your tank ?

A few serious suggestions please - An old cart horse like me would perhaps go for something
like that ?

I did have an idea, what about a coach or wagon that gets sent out - people who get it can then add to it as it goes around

Things like:
adding people
or lights
colouring in a section with favourite colour
simply signing their username to it
Adding transfers/markings


The end result will probably end up looking a right old mess but could be a bit of fun?

We could either leave it fairly open or figure out how many people are taking part and then split it into sections ?

Edit:
Or something based on location of that user - particularly if it ventures outside of the UK

May I suggest this coach? If acceptable I shall add NRM to the sides. I have taken the screw out so the roof just lifts off. Add passengers, graffiti etc.
