Re: Lockdown haircuts

At the beginning of the lockdown I bought a brilliant Wahl hair trimmer. It has removable guides for No. 1, 2, 3, cuts etc plus other guides for around the ears etc. It cost £36 on line so will pay for itself within 4 months. Having used it once I reckon I won't bother with the barbers again.

Re: Toy Trainsets And Trains...

These sets are often dismissed as pure toys (which they are) but they are a great way of introducing young children to the delights of railway modelling and if only a few are converted to 'proper modelling' it's a bonus. I once saw at an exhibition several years ago a 'layout' made up of several cir...

Re: Arson and vandalism on preserved railway

As I have said before in similar cases until there is suitable punishment for such people this sort of thing will continue to occur (as will all other sorts of anti-social crime). However, the pathetic Human Rights brigade, do-gooders, etc prevent such justice from being implemented.
