Re: Post Office / Parcelforce Scam

I agree with you RAF Royal Mail most of the time is excellent. But it does depend on where you live. I have lived all around the UK and one or two areas the post took ages and others were excellent. Scotish post beats them all. Scotish postmen keep you up to date with all the gossip as well.

Re: Silver jubilee coaches

No nothing in there. I thought I could remember hearing that hornby were planning some for the future, may-be. Perhapse I was dreaming. I have a nice Silver fox but nothing but LNER teaks for it to pull.
