    Might be awhile before it gets there, I think the per way took the track up for renewal and haven't yet got around to replacing it. Might be a case of a RRB. (Rail Replacement Bus).

    Hopefully might bump into you tomorrow in Wells.

    I shall look out for the chap in the green crushed velvet suit, yellow shirt and paisley cravat then.

    Cheers Rob :thumbs:. Thing is, when mini me is painted the colours could be anything I like. Purple plaid with orange shirt and lime green cravat? Wow! I wouldn't need lighting on my layout with that lot going on :)).

    They look easier to use than the Southwark bridge etched ones.

    Members of the EM Gauge Society react in shock and disgust at the confirmation that Mutton is OO gauge, using PECO Streamline track work. .............. ( true story...)
