Good news - Bad news!

We're all on lock down here as you've prob heard.

It's all a bit worrying as I'll have to get and finish my Eddingford river. Also, we're running out of Speckled Hen which means switching over to Stella Artois!

 :beers:

Take it easy.

The Table-Top Railway is an attempt to create, in British 'N' gauge,  a 'semi-scenic' railway in the old-fashioned style, reminiscent of the layouts of the 1920s to the 1950s.

For the made-up background to the railway and list of characters, please see here: https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=38281.msg607991#msg607991

I appreciate the 'sympathy' guys but what's a bloke to do?

Already at some risk, do I get Significant Other to check the booze aisles out before the toilet rolls?  :uneasy:

I shall report back - later!

Nowt wrong with Stella! In fact in my last two trips to the UK, it's all I drank. Couldn't stand British ales anymore.  Sorry!   :beers:

Good grief man!

Umpteen years in the colonies and look whats happened to you!

S'pose it leaves more for us. If we can get and grab some.

I did think at one point that hibernation was a good idea but I couldn't fit inside the airing cupboard.

Stay safe everyone and don't talk to any strange policemen who may check you are going out for 'essential supplies'.

I've been out of the moonboot for over a week now. Ironically, my first day out of it was the day the pubs and clubs were closed down, so I haven't been able to go and show anybody!!

Does this mean it hasn't been road tested under the affluence of incohol, George?

The cops and the army were moving people on from Bondi Beach promenade today.

Watch it, Mick. My daughter's girlfriend is a copper and a phone call from her could get you moved on, too. :D
