Re: Model railway constructor magazine

Hi
I have Constructor from about 1961 to mid 1970s and Railway Modeler from 1961 until about 3 years ago. They are insulating my loft at the present time. Quite rightly SWMBO is complaining and I want to get rid of them.

Re: And another hobby.

A couple of years ago we cruised the Adriatic and when we got to Venice there were another 5 cruise ships there. At one point it took us 30 minutes to cross one of the small bridges. As we'd spent a few days there a couple of years earlier we gave up and returned to our ship. That is one of the reas...

Re: Forced to slow down.

Hi Steve What a start for the new year! Think positive! Lots of us on here are wrecks, decrepid, and otherwise fit for the knackers yard. You did a good job on my Black 5 and I did promise that you can do a repaint and renumber on a Duchess, so start thinking about it! Seriously, do what the medics ...
