Re: Frustration

Parts arrived from Peters Spares (one week after ordering for delivery to Aus. I'm impressed) Started work on the castle. Is it just my heavy handedness or this loco is so fragile. Tried to reconnect the piston crosshead to the connecting rod and the slide rails parted company with the piston block....

There is something quite soothing watching that video. One challenge that could takes hours would be to adjust the speed of the locos so they stayed in sync. :shock:

Class 42 in the Game

On Netflix in Aus at the moment is an English series "the game"- Great series by the way. There is a shot in episode 3 where an MI 5 agent is chasing a suspect on a Western region train- this is set in the cold war and there is a brilliant shot of a class 42 with a rake of Pulmans

Not quite sure how this works. They come on the forum, look for The Mess Room then Wishlists.
Just spread the word (usually telling SWAMBO is enough to get it round the family) to look up "posting.php?mode=quote&f=17&p=3341" and look for " walking the dog"
