Captain (now Colonel hon) Tom Moores !00th Birthday
« on: April 30, 2020, 09:21:24 AM »
What a milestone to achieve for your 100th.

Raised almost 30 million for the NHS. A number one record with Michael Ball. Been made a member of the England cricket team. Promoted to Colonel(hon) and extra special national news coverage from the BBC with an awesome flypast by a Hurricane and a Spit 

An awesome birthday celebration for an amazing guy who has uplifted everyone's spirit around the globe. This morning it made me feel proud to be British.

Happy Birthday Captain Tom :beers:

And a special postmark, a specially painted post box and two trains being named after him.

I guess its the thought that counts, as Tom lives in Bedford one of these might have been more appropriate! ;)

As has been suggested I'd definitely buy a model of that if it were going

Me too, I wonder if @acko22 could be persuaded to take this on given his previous experience?

Regards,

Gareth is now a Freightliner employee, so I'm not sure he'd be the best person to be tapping GBRF up! I can see Dapol taking it on. Hornby are doing the OO gauge one, so can't see that Bachmann will.

If Dapol do it I just hope they fix the colours of their Europorte livery, their model of "Lesia" is a total disaster.
