That's a brilliant photograph of Hookey and @tutenkhamunsleeping posted a marvellous one of Kato driving an ex-GWR 'Grange'.  Thank you both.

Maybe Hookey will like the motorcycle, Mick.  When I was 17 (not last year, then), our family cat was called Korky and I had a BSA 250cc single fitted with a Gold Star silencer.  When I arrived home, Korky would jump up on me before I had even stopped the engine.  I'd then put the BSA on its centre stand (who remembers these?) and she would happily sit on the seat for ages enjoying the sounds and smells of a British motorcycle cooling down.  Some day I'll get the Vincent out from below a decrepit 'H0' layout in the garage and see what Poppy makes of it...

The Table-Top Railway is a train set trying and failing to be a model railway.

I believe that train sets and model railways are fun.

I remember the BSA 250 singles well, John (or perhaps if you have a Vincent tucked away I should call you Ogri ;D)
I used to have a black cat named Sam who would regularly wait at the bus stop I got off at after work and then he'd walk home with me. He then got used to the sound of my Mini Metro and would come out to greet me. I just love cats.
