Nope. I collect US N scale. It's not as if it pushes out British outline models.

Sorry to hear that, Richard - anything particular or just a general blues day.
(Why is it that when we're down we play sad music, or is that just me?)
I've been having a bad few weeks as I'm having to try and make a double figure price increase stick with my customers :(

I made my first tentative steps into he joke section... and I feel revived but also peckish. Not sure how that works. :P I particularly liked the bulldog clip as the beer bookstop type thing. Very good.  :beers:

Cloughie: that certainly would cheer me up, and maybe push me the other way! Will put it on my list of ales to try!  :beers:

Newportnobby: nothing interesting but, yes, something in particular. I'm a final year vet student and I'd say I was more practical than academic and I love surgery. I'm currently seeing practice in York (nice place, nice people, been here before) and I've not done any small animal stuff in months. I'm clearly not as good as I was a couple of months ago and that's really frustrating. I can see the vet thinking "he hasn't improved, he's supposed to be good at surger" and he didn't like the sutures I did today. I know, it's nothing really and I'm being too hard on myself but it's been a week and a half now and I feel a bit like a failure. Just one of those days when you let things get on top of you. Oh, and I ate a load of off coleslaw (by 5 days). It took me a good few mouthfuls to realise that it was 'fizzing' in my mouth. Hoping to keep it down though!  :smiley-laughing:

Poliss: I wasn't born in 1979! Sad to have missed your good day.

It stands to reason that there is going to be more American and Japanese models on eBay, the Japanese population is nearly 128 Million and America has 310 Million people so there is going to be one heck of a lot more model railway modellers than the UK with 61 Million residents.

Combined Population of Japan and USA is 438 Million

UK Population 61 Miilion

Feel sorry for the Aussies looking for second hand model railway stuff on eBay, hardly any at all.

Population of Oz 22 Million.

As a side thing a mate that owns a model railway shop in Brisbane Oz calculated that there were probably less than 300 model railway fans that belonged to clubs in that city, no wonder the stuff is scarce.
Keep on Smiling
