Hope you didn't spill any George

It was over a fortnight ago and stitches are out and I'm pretty much ok now.  :thumbsup:

I hope you're ok now George.

I once did similar alighting from a train at Temple Meads. There was beer involved in mine too, lots of it. And a half bottle of brandy. It's a long way from Sheffield so I had to do something to pass the time didn't I? Mine was slightly different in that I was pushed helped off the train by a kind BTP employee who promptly disappeared as I saw on the BTP time lapse CCTV when I lodged an official complaint. All I wanted was my £4,500 dental bill paid but it seems I didn't have enough proof as to what had actually allegedly happened.

Hi Gang;
Just back from a great weekend and day at the Glasgow show....it certainly had a better selection of layouts than last year and most were operating fairly well. A few operating difficulties for some, but nothing is ever perfect!!

I have replaced all the wheelsets in the CS Mk5s now and most are now very free-running on the test incline. A couple were hesitant at first but a quick 'reseat' of the axles to ensure the bush sits smoothly outside of the 'pip' on the pickups and all seem to be fine. I have also found that repeated handling of these coaches and fiddling repetitively with the bogies has caused some fat finger damage to a few of the yaw dampers , so a little bit of superglue was needed in a couple of instances.

I'll dig the test track out later and do a bit of a haulage test, but I feel sure that the Revolution 92 will now happily pull the Glasgow set (8 coaches) and I will add gradually the remaining 6 Aberdeen coaches to see how it gets on, although I cannot see me ever having the space to run a full length sleeper!!!

Getting the test track out will also give me a chance to have a look at the 59005 collected on Friday too!!

Later;
Stu from NRSW

She probably couldn't escape Travis Kelce's grasp, and who can blame him?

A bit slow getting back on here due to looking after 23 month old grandson for 4 days while his Mum went to Sydney to see Taylor Swift..
Glad there are some guitar players on the Forum. Playing guitar, or any other instrument for that matter I guess, is a great relaxation and a wonderful way to take your mind off stresses as it's hard to concentrate on music and think of anything else.
On another note (?) Dorset Mike mentioned the Dutch College Swing band. That's getting pretty obscure, but I just happened to pick up a second hand CD of theirs signed by the band. Must give it another spin.
