On the subject of realism, I was once admiring a layout at an exhibition when the guy stood next to me started to comment to one of the operators about the choice of cows they had on the layout. He told them they were incorrect as the breed of cows they had on the layout had not been introduced into the UK until well after the era the railway was set in. He was deadly serious about it as well. A cow is a cow to me. I'll not be researching what breeds of cow were in fields in the 50s/60s.
Are you sure it wasn't April 1st?!
As true as I'm sat here typing this message. I couldn't believe it either.After the guy left the operator just looked at me and shrugged his shoulders.
