Good shots of our Norwegian and Pullman train. Our Ops Assistant scrubs up well.

Not a lot new here, but nice to watch anyway. Spoiled somewhat on occasions by that scruffy and rather childish presenter.

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

It's weird how aliens beam me up for what seems like just 10-15 minutes and then they beam me back down again when I've lost some of the story. It must be their sense of fun :uneasy:

So Mick, what do these aliens look like, and what do they do to you? :hmmm:

Or is it just the mushrooms you're eating? :D

Just finished watching the first episode. Not bad, good for those who know little of the great days of steam, and the excited presenter was a little taxing at times, though he had a right to be as he got to ride on the footplate of the Scotsman, get taken for a trip on (and drive) the B1 model 'Bongo', and generally have a grand time with trains.

I shall watch the rest of the series.

Friday night is NYMR turn, also on Channel 5, as has been mentioned elsewhere.

I've never seen them, Mike, but they do like to take me away for several minutes and then set me down again, usually meaning I miss something important in a defectivedetective programme and lose the plot. I could possibly have had the wrong mushrooms for dinner :confused1:
However, I'm going off on a tangerine again........

I regret that I must inform honourable members that our sign writer, one Mr Hansard,  has made a blunder.
Bottom right should read  "2 smiles" in all directions.

It's probably been repeated six times in between. 

There were no less than three railway programmes on at 9pm last night so I only saw this during the ad breaks in one of the others.
