A couple of new items arrived 'Chez Nobby' today, the first of which I can blame fairly and squarely on @emjaybee  :D





Smart packaging too.............



Next one was more of a "Ahhhh. Isn't it cute? :heart2:" sort of purchase but was post free







and, yes, I know some of the track in the goods yard needs a damned good clean :P

Whoa, whoa, whoa!

 :stop:

Now hang on a minute, I'm not taking that. I didn't do a thing! All I did was compare measurements of a particular (nothing specific, mind) item in a 'what if' scenario with the available space of a hypothetical situation as regards a personages available 'square acreage' of track space! At no point did I mention getting a dog Terrier. There was never any mention of parting with beer tokens in exchange for stock.

I can't believe it's happening all over again! PaulPrice used to blame me for all his wild extravagance, at least he had the decency to blame me to get round his D.O., your just using me to pacify your soul! Unbelievable!

Nice crane by the way, what made you buy one of them as well as the Terrier?

I can understand why @emjaybee could get blamed for that - wouldn't mind blaming him myself for one  ;)

Now hang on a moment,sir. I never stated you prodded me into getting a loco. You did, however, chunter on for England about the amount of free space on my layout, so much so that, in fact, I bought it purely for some peace as opposed to wanting one that badly :angel:

The excuse was not that it was post free but that it was so cute I just wanted to give it a good home. The free post was just a Brucie Bonus.
(Now to think of how it could appear in Oxfordshire from Eastleigh........ :hmmm: ;))

For a small fee,  that could be arranged.

Oh! I think you misunderstood!

Blimey, you've barely got room for that Terrier never mind a huge great breakdown crane!

I mean, their huge! It'll be coming round the front whilst the last vehicle is still exiting the frontscene!

 :o

What on earth made you think that was a good idea?

Well I suppose that is a novel reason for getting a new engine. (wonder if that will work with SWMBO  :hmmm:)

How about this, Mick:

32636 was withdrawn at the end of 1963.  In early 1964, she went to the Bluebell Railway where we know her as 'Fenchurch'.  In her late BR days, she was famous as the oldest locomotive in service.

If your layout is set before the end of 1963, she might well be in Oxon for a BR open day or similar.

If 1964 or later, a tall tale involving the Bluebell Railway might be necessary.

Lovely engine.  That livery rather suits her.

Best wishes.

John

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 1930s to the 1950s.

Well seeing as @Newportnobby has set a trend with cute locos, here is the latest (and maybe last) result of my loft / Gumtree / Boot sale windfall...





The 03 (described by Mrs Skyline as “sweet”) was a bit of a result from eBay. It’s clearly never been out of its box but runs very sweetly. The shunters truck is from TMC (also a bit of a bargain at a moment).
