Hi Herb

Got yo(u)r drift.


Boy = small bloke with short trousers

Buoy = anchored float

Buoyant = opposite of girl ant

'Arba = harbour (U.S.-harbor)

Pronounced: R-Ba, in Saarfff Lundun...

...check any Michael Caine movie for correct sound !

Ta Ta chaps

Tally-Ho

Si.

A paddling-steamer sounds like right proper stuff.

:pimp:

Pimp my steamer !



Hi Charley

I saved this from amongst the lint & borax !

- - - - - - -

Great to hear you've got some time off, to work on the new 'Tidewater' & stuff.
Me too.

Have already inhaled 1/2 a bottle of MEK...
...as long as I remember to put out the garbage on Monday nite...
...I've got a clear few days for 1:35 world !

BOOM !

I can't open the windows (too cold)...
...& the neighbours might call it a WMD attack !

Oh well; 1/2 a bottle & two 1:35 kits to go...
...the headache-pills & coffee-beans seem to go down at the same rate as the MEK !
So no problem there !

:P

Si.



'Tidewater' rollin' stock; all steel construction (some rivets).

Si , Woodrow , fellers..

I just got out the Fairbanks Morris LOCOMOTIVES...one is broken..the axle gears give up if they are driven rough with long strings..last layout had both those...I had the throttles set up for center off / either direction by scrolling that way..very nice except for people who are ham handed.then the axle gears crack , they do not cost much..and are rather easy to come by..a common problem ..although maybe a designed in safety for the rest of the drive bits..?..I did a bit of operations fotos hopefully will appear...?..

No wonder that Charlie has trouble with posting photos!

See the strange bubbles coming out of the ground in the last pix?

Aliens are living under his layout--and don't want their cover blown.

Si, you may be in danger--if we don't hear from you--it's been nice------

Erb' Si , Woodrow , fellers..

There is not alot of progress of late along the Tidewater line.

The staff is moving freight every day. Most traffic is gravel form the plant to the big road interchange and MT's back..

The oil traffic is moving but less often..the cooler weather has reduced drain time in the tanks..

A newish SP nee T&NO S-1 seen on the line. It is probably a temporary .

I traded for it in the last life and did not like the way it ran.It runs fine..the settings are different a bit..it runs fine, just a bit different.

The paint scheme is starting to appeal as well....?.
