What on earth is a stogumber - apart from a village in Somerset? :confused2: :dunce:

I've just Googled this. It isn't a vegetable but, perchance, the name of the village appears to stem from an old English word STOC which means 'place, farm or monastery'. The website from which I gleaned this nugget of trivia actually used the WSR station name board as its header which I thought was rather nice.

I always thought that Stogumber was some sort of West Country vegetable that the Victorians used to boil without mercy.
There's your answer :D

So... another word for a brussel sprout then ;D

It's nice to see a place from yesteryear that's still recognizable, today.

I lived in an Arkansas town named Paragould. The founding fathers used the names of James W. Paramore and Jay Gould whose railroads formed the crossing where the town was built. http://www.downtownparagould.com/images/730/mural-17173.jpg

Very quiet on the modeling front at the moment. Too much to do outside and too tired when I get in. A couple more projects to finish before I retire the cement mixer, some steps so my wife can get to see the railway and a new pond for the 18 large goldfish we have. They are suffering serious overcrowding at the moment and suffering because of it.

A couple of photos to show I've done something over the past couple of months.




Bad weather forecast for the next few days so perhaps I can hide away and get a bit more done.

Seconded! The scenery is coming along very well, Brian. I particularly like the scenery in the bottom photo. That will be a very attractive spot to photo. trains.

I hope you'll be able to complete the essential outside work and then get some more layout work time.
