Now Railway Modelling makes it into The Spectator
« on: December 13, 2019, 08:09:04 PM »
Richard Bratby has an elegant two page spread in the new Spectator (if you're browsing in Smiths, it's pages 36-37) with a nice shot of "Umbridge N Gauge layout" as seen at Warley. The hobby's popping up so often lately (though I'm not sure it featured in any of the leaders' debates; so much the worse for them).

(We could speculate what layout each leader might build that would reflect their personality - were that not too political for this forum.  :no: )

That was beautifully written and a rare positive and 'grown up' reflection of our hobby, these lines summed up what we do beautifully for me

"years of creativity, care and quiet pleasure"

 :idea: Boris would have a Eurostar themed, End-to-..., er, End-to-Nowhere layout. Jeremy would have a Eurostar themed, Roundy-Roundy layout. Jo Swinson wouldn't have a layout, but would scrap RevolutioN's forthcoming KUA.

 :goodbye: I'll get my coat.
“We are indebted to those soldiers who served with courage and distinction to bring peace to Northern Ireland,” UK Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said. “The welfare of our former service personnel is of the utmost importance.”

Would Jeremys be OO or a very large O?

I was going to berate you for being political, but dang, that was funny.
