Never heard the word. Had to look it up.

No hablo Midland English so for the benefit of others like me it means very good or excellent.  :)

Good call.

Cheers weave  :beers:

Good one, Ian!

Just  got back to Chez Bealman - will post a similar pic of my purchase from your favourite  shop soon.

It's a shunting loco, by the way.... Kato 7014-1 DD13  :worried:

I know it runs and has lights, though.... the young guy in the shop tested it for me! His English  wasn't  bad either!  :thumbsup: :beers:

That's a model I don't actually own, though I have evidence to justify one in early brown livery.

Meanwhile the geoformers have been in, filling in the last major gap on the inside of the east curve.

The new station even has a name (though the English version seems to have been omitted):



Been trying to get hold of taxis like that for, well it seems like ever  :(

Move to Tokyo, it's amazing what you can find here.

Apropos of nothing more than it being June 6th, here an EF66 bursting forth from a tunnel which must be on the Tokaido Main Line.

(for some reason the forum won't allow more than two external images per post, hence the split...)
