    If you want something “Bursting with the flavours of ripe black currants”, why wouldn’t you drink Ribena?

    Just sayin’...

    Delicate hint of spiced sheep.

    That should read "Baaah! Missed that"

    I must say that the Chateau Sheep du Pape looks very appealing............

    Lynton and Barnstaple Swiss chalet style building, nice! Probably covered by thick fog at the moment, if the Barnstaple weather is anything to go by .

    Season’s greetings and a Happy and Healthy 2019 to you Rob.

    This coming weekend sees Sheep Lane exhibited at the Small Cardiff Show in Pontcanna.

    A few tweaks have been made but it is just about ready to go.

    The following weekend, Feb 2nd, sees Mutton at the Yate Show. A busy couple of weeks all in all.

    It would be splendid to see a few Thunderers at either show.

    All good.

    I'm stuck for getting there my show buddy is happy to drive to Eastleigh it's under an hours drive
    Cardiff is 4 hours road time it's too far for a small show by rail, have fun. :(

    Morning all.

    Prep for Mutton 's appearance at Yate continues with a few repairs and tweaks.

    The Hornby Radials have been fettled and three of the four are running in an acceptable fashion.

    30583 {late crest} has a distinct and irritating limp going forwards and will not appear.

    Therefore they will be supported by a 700 class to add a touch of variety.

    Other stock is ready to go with perhaps a bit of polishing for the coach sides.

    Clean the track, hoover and that should be it............

    What have I forgotten...............? 20181108_193613.jpg 20181108_192756.jpg 20181125_151710.jpg

    Ah! Knew there was something.........the fitting of the guard rails to the rear windows of 30583.

    Oh well. It will wait until after the show.

    Morning all.

    As detailed elsewhere, the Yate Show was cancelled. Quite understandable in the circumstances and the right thing to do.

    In the run up, I have spent a bit of time adding a few details to Mutton so all good at my end. I may well take advantage of the fact that Mutton is sort of set up in the warm house and play with my trainset.......sorry, do a spot of operating later........
