I tried the Bonio diet, but I ended up in A&E after I had the urge to sit down in the middle of the road to try and lick my bottom...

I'm hoping for a smooth, glossy coat but, having been for a short walk this afternoon people did look at me rather oddly when I cocked my right leg up a lamp post :confused2:

Have you tried the Bonio diet. You put a few in your pockets and when you feel peckish gnaw on them. I tried it a couple of years ago and lost two stone. I did however end up in hospital, I ran into the road to chase a cat and got hit by a car.

Hi All

Class 20 from Bure Valley Railway

Not many of these left in retailers so took the opportunity to buy their last one in stock at 99, likely a good buy as these seem to be selling at 100 plus on Ebay

Nice runner

Postie delivered a parcel today containing the 4 x Thompson coaches, a SR bogie baggage van (you can't have enough parcels stock) and a couple of packs of Peco pre soldered fishplates. By dint of using the vouchers I was holding for the late arriving 8F the whole lot only cost me 15 :)
(Of course, when the 8F does arrive I'll have to open the wallet)

Some might consider it boring, but another 5 coal sector heroes arrived today... and I love 'em!

4x new class 56's and a second-hand 58.



All I need now is a blue and large logo 56, and I'm done. Famous last words.  :-[

I do already have about 50 HEAs in black, bauxite and red/grey.

But I'm eagerly awaiting the re-release of Farish HAA's later this year! :D

I have 6x 56s and 6x 58s, so what's that ... ~360 HAA's needed? About 6 grand then.  :laugh3:

Yeah, I'm stupid but not that stupid.

I think I might treat myself to 4 rakes instead of a full 12!

Not quite sure why I need a Black 5 in LMS livery, apart from the fact they've always appealed to me.

The question is not: "Why do I need a Black 5?"...

...but rather: "Why have I only got one Black 5?"

 :D

It's a Stanier, why wouldn't you? But, be warned, I started with the exact same model. This leads onto the Jubilees, and another '5', then the Coronations.

The LMS Black 5, the original gateway drug.
