I too had a good review from my 6 months diabetic tests. Same as Bob, told my weight was over what it should be. I explained that the charts show what weight you should be for a given height. I told the nurse that I wasn't actually over weight, just under tall.
I'm not sure if life is passing me by, or trying to run me over.

Not sure my dragon of a diabetic clinic nurse would react too well if I said that to her.
She said she expected me to lose 10 lbs by my next visit under threat of some undisclosed painful retribution. I think I will need to find some effective anaesthetic before I go next time.

Size matters - especially if you don't have a lot of space - and N gauge is the answer!

Splendid response, @Malc !

I shall try that on next time but I fear that 'Nursie' may suggest something similar to what @austinbob has been threatened told.

They're not allowed to amputate anything  :-X without your Grandma's written OK, are they?  :worried:

I finished my night shift and slept for six hours straight.  Simple I know, but it made me happy when I finally awoke  :)

Picked up (among other things) at a local railway exhibition a brace of Railway Modellers from 5~6 years ago (but in new conditon) for a song, one of which contains a special supplement on "Buckingham Central", which I keep hearing about but have rarely seen much detail on.

What was the song? was it something by Elvis?

I just choose something vaguely remembered from the latest karaoke night, and sing it until they give me what I want.

I take it you mean Buckingham Grand Central' by Rev. Peter Denny. One of the great pioneering EM layouts. Funny enough, I was reading tha modeller today. If you can get hold of any of the RM's of the fifties/sixties with Peter's articles they are worth a look.

Spent eight and a half hours with Tonye and Shelley  putting the world to rights and eating cakes , sandwiches ,scotch eggs etc , oh and we did actually run some trains ,THANKS for coming down and cheering me up guys it was a great time .
Its allways fun sharing your layout with someone even if you make a few mistakes because your not concentrating on what your doing and forget that you have allready got a train on the main line but try to bring one off of the branchline ,it all adds to the fun and no damage done .
Cheers Tonye thanks again.

You worry too much Bob, Running your layout is always fun. It was a special events day on your railway , due to the amount of different stock that was running. Cake was needed just to keep going. :thankyousign:

Not sure a 'Collet Goods' would be too apropriate for the West Highlands or darkest Lanarkshire.  From what I've seen of 'Union mills' stuff, they are very basic. Not for me I'm afraid.  :(

@Bob Tidbury
2 in early crest and no late crest version, Bob. Maybe a typo?
Wonder when we can see a pic of one.

Edit:- just seen 'Train Waiting's' post under Union Mills next model and there is no late crest version.
There is also a pic
