Not easy to negotiate with a bus either I imagine. Itís hard enough with a caravan behind the car!
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

As long as the caravan is behind the car... My mother once managed the trick of placing the caravan in front of the car, albeit on a German autobahn.

I was following a car and caravan at the M1 M6 junction it was proceeding up the M1 when it realised it should be proceeding up the M6.
The sudden change of direction meant the caravan went up the M 1 sideways, the car was going up the M6 sideways . Untill the combination impacted on the Armco in the middle, bits flying every where.
I was on the inside lane going up the M6, and escaped the wreckage.  Some other cars were not so lucky...

Hi all,

I mentioned long ago that I wanted to take a pic of my local bus stop round the corner to join in but felt it might be too weird or words to that effect.

Anyway, did some pics on my layout today (haven't been in the room for a few days) and realised next door have had a tree removed.

Hey presto!....



Just the small sign in the distance I'm afraid but the Calvados bottle came out well.

Can try and get one of a bus now but they seem to run to a Spanish timetable (Bolivian on Sundays).

Anyway, thought I'd keep the thread going (or not).

Cheers weave  :beers:

The main reason I'm not posting pictures of trolleys at the bus stop lately is because the local bus company, Premier, are now running a service in my area called Premier on Demand. It's door to door, for $1.50!

So I simply ring up from the club, and get dropped off right outside Chez Bealman!

I think without the Calvados bottle the photo would lack a certain ambiance  and the bus stop would become meaningless. :D :beers:

Itís a full size Calvados bottle looking out at an N Gauge bus stop.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.
