What in the world is "black pudding?" I have remember "bangers and mash," and "toad-in-the-hole" (my sister refused to eat them thinking they were toads), but not familiar with black pudding.

Also, here in Texas if one orders "tea," one will get a large glass full of ice and chilled tea. In order to obtain proper tea, one must specify "hot," and not infrequently, several times in a row. Also, a "napkin" will get you something to put in your lap, not the other thing.


I am honoured. A cricket team named after me. :D I hope they are a good team. :lol: Glencairn is actually an estate just south of Wick, Scotland (near Lybster). I hope 'Nessie' doesn't go that far north. Keep her in the Loch.

As for black pudding? The recipe is not for the squeamish. Those of such indisposition look away now.
Black pudding is normally made of a mixture of pig’s blood with oatmeal, pork fat, onions and plenty of spices and seasonings, giving it a strong and robust flavour.

Iced tea? I cannot say I like it. A hot brew for me.

As I am having work done around 'Glencairn Towers', and the layout is out of bounds, here is a before and after picture from the bridge'
Before -- A view of Sovereign Street Station. A lot of the scenery was from my old layout in the loft and was placed without much thought. I just wanted to run trains.

Now -- A 'claustrophobic feel' of enclosure with the warehouses and water tower.

Don't you ever rest all this work even though it looks great is putting my current efforts to shame. :D

As for having a rest? Not really. It keeps me out of mischief.
Glad you like it.
As for your current efforts? I understand you are a wizard with the lawnmower. :wink: :lol:

All trains diverted to Scholarsgate and Sovereign Street will keep Dr Beeching away. :lol:

What can I say? I am glad my modest effort is helping in someway.

To get this far has taken a few years. I have made many mistakes with probably many more to come, because I am still learning.
One thing I have learned is not to have railway track too far away to reach over to clean etc.

As regarding scenery though? I hope the animals on Ash Farm do not 'keel over and die'. :lol: They must be a 'canny age' by now. :lol:
Then there are the guys at J H Thompson's. 'Elf'n'safety out the window. :lol:

With the station at Scholarsgate Station 'finished' apart from a few passengers to place on the platforms and the new track replacing the old, a new project is required. I am not sure just yet as to what it will be. I think I shall run some trains. :D

A picture or two with a little story to them and what they mean to me.
I lived with an Aunt & Uncle for three years when I was orphaned at three days old. We lived at Claro View in Leeds. Cousins Jean & Margaret were like sisters to me. They now live near Dewsbury.
A wagon to remind me of earlier times.

Another Uncle & Aunt used to live at Burmantofts in Leeds. They used to give me little jobs to do with small payments that went towards holidays etc.. It helped me to respect the earning of money.
