Wow what a find.

Of course it's tinged with sadness of the late gentleman passing away, but it would be so much worse for it all to be destroyed forever.

Just wish it was on YouTube rather than Ticky Tokyy

Still on the subject of covers, I've always rather liked I'm Not in Love by 10cc but.....
Is this slower, jazzy version by Karen Souza better?

Some rather nice keyboard work I think.

N Gauge Discussion / Mk1 Inspection Saloon

Does anyone know of a 3d printed Mk1 Inspection Saloon?
I'm looking into modelling 999508:

The inset panels were a later addition which I'd be happy to add.

Ultima/Etched Pixels used to do a conversion kit for the old Farish BG but I was wondering if there was something more up-to-date that wouldn't look out of place next to repainted Blue Riband standard Farish Mk1s.

Modifying the NGS/Farish LMS version would be hard work. The under-frame would need swapping, end windows replacing and doors/windows are in the wrong places.

PARENTAL GUIDANCE ADVISED

"Eli, you seem lost in thought", Sylvia gently remarks. "Is everything okay?"

"I could ask you the same, Sylvie." Eli smiles faintly. "You've been quiet too."

"I guess we both have a lot on our minds." Sylvia nods. "I've been thinking about Jeremy and this evening's grand Christmas Ball."

"What a coincidence!" Eli laughs softly. "I've been thinking about Giles and the Ball too.

"Really, Eli? What about Giles?"

"Well, I was just picturing how he would look this evening in the outfit he purchased with Jeremy in London." Eli blushes. "And... I guess I'm a bit nervous about the dancing."

"Eli, Giles will look very dashing!" Grins Sylvia. "Remember, they have both purchased the very best that London's finest gentlemen's outfitters have to offer. And don't worry about the dancing. All of us have practised together enough times in London, remember?"

"Thanks, Sylvie." Eli smiles gratefully. "That means a lot, Sylvie. What about you? What's on your mind about Jeremy?"

"I'm just..." Sylvia sighs. "I'm just hoping that the Ball will be a magical night for all of us."

"Sylvie", Eli states reassuringly. "The way Jeremy looks at you, I'm sure it will be. Let's look forward to it together, okay?"

"Yes, let's do that." Sylvia smiles. "Here's to a magical Christmas Ball!"

Sylvia and Eli, each holding a delicate champagne flute, exchange a knowing look. With a soft clink of their glasses, they tilt their heads back, the golden liquid sparkling in the dim light. The bubbles dance on their tongues as they savour the sweet, crisp taste of the 'Dom Pérignon'. The last drops of the effervescent drink trickle down, leaving their flutes empty but for the lingering scent of celebration.

Setting her empty glass down, Sylvia turns to Eli, a twinkle in her dark brown eyes. "You know", she says, her voice soft yet firm, "I think I know just what we need to help us relax."

Sylvia confidently leads Eli by the hand towards the shower. "We must be ready for our admirers tonight, my dear."

The small side room with its black and white tiling is dimly lit with soft, flickering scented candles casting dancing shadows on the walls. The warm, moist air is filled with the intoxicating scent of exotic flowers and spices, creating an atmosphere of sensuality and pleasure.

Without a word, Sylvia reaches out and begins to unbutton Eli's silk dressing gown, her fingers skimming over the delicate fabric. The gown falls open, revealing Eli's ample cleavage.

In response, Eli reaches out to help Sylvia with her own dressing gown, her fingers deftly undoing the buttons as she admires the beautiful young woman before her.

With their dressing gowns removed, the two women stand before each other, their breaths quickening with each passing moment. Sylvia reaches out to stroke Eli's cheek as she studies her dearest friend. Eli, with her freckles, cornflower blue eyes, and full lips, draws immediate attention, she reflects, wherever she goes. Some are captivated by her narrow waist and broad bosom, while others appreciate the dancer's grace with which she moves. Eli's figure invites both admiration and intrigue—a canvas of curves that gently emphasise her femininity. She carries her body with pride, unapologetic in a world that often demands conformity. Whether whispered compliments or lingering glances, her appearance leaves an indelible impression on those who encounter her. At twenty-two years old, Eli's spirit is as untamed as her hair, and her uninhibited laughter echoes loud and long.

As they move closer together, Sylvia gently reassures her. "Don't worry, dear Eli. All will be fine."

Entering the shower cubicle, Sylvia gently closes the door behind them, enveloping the two close friends in the intimate space. She turns on the water, adjusting the temperature to a perfect balance of warmth and coolness. The sound fills the air, a symphony of relaxation and indulgence.

Sylvia then recalled a conversation with her mother.

"My dear daughter, never forget, my spirit walks with yours, as does the spirit of my mother, and her mother before her. This lineage of women, along with their steadfast male partners who loved without blood ties, are all with you. Generations of our ancestors watch over you, admiring your growth and progress, living and leading as they hoped you would."

Sylvia nodded.

"When you find yourself feeling low, alone, or unloved, remember them. Feel their presence. They are there with you, their boundless light illuminating all that you do. You are the culmination of countless women who have come before you, and like them, you will prepare the way for those who follow."

"Thank you."

"You are part of a beautiful, enduring legacy, my dear Sylvie."

Sylvia glances at the 'Silver Moon' clutch—with its celestial secrets—resting close by, waiting for its purpose to unfold while she muses. 'Will Jeremy be the next Lord Trevelver, the hero chosen to stand by my side? But chosen by who? Did I really ever have a choice? Did Jeremy? Sylvia and Jeremy; Eli and Giles... Or will fate twist our paths, again, leading us to uncharted waters?'

As the firelight flickers, she wonders if, for a female Trevelver, love can ever be a rebellion against inheritance—a defiance of passion over tradition. Perhaps her female ancestors smile from the shadows, knowing that sometimes, even future queens and captains must surrender to the direction of the heart's compass, to a destiny long pre-ordained, that harbour of calmness that no storm can breach.

Sylvia's attention then returns to the present and Eli, sitting quietly opposite her, lost in reverie. Eli is a study in contrasts. Her freckled face, full lips, and bright blue eyes sparkle with curiosity and a hint of mischief. Taller than average at 5 feet 6 inches, she moves with the grace of a dancer.

But it is her figure that truly captivates—a delightful canvas of curves, with measurements of 37-23-34. Her large bosom catches the eye, contrasting beautifully with her delicate, cinched waist, her magnificent bust accentuating her femininity. Eli is both bold and hesitant, fierce yet shy, a symphony of contradictions that leaves an indelible impression.
