#107 hit the doormat this morning. Broad Water Pier looks tempting, as does Argenton Wharf Yard, not that I don't need any more temptation.

The latter is less than 5ft long in American O scale standard gauge, I'd be inclined to use HO and shrink it accordingly if copying the idea. But that's not going to happen. Too many irons in the fire at the moment.

Mine arrived today too. Looking forward to a good read.

Many thanks for printing the Starker Verkehr article but I would like to respectfully like to point out that the r/h point is three-way not two. It's my own fault for not drawing it myself!

My copy arrived in perfect condition today - along with a nice tax refund (thanks Chris & the team and Mr Taxman - no relation!) Anyway what a great edition! MTI is always a good read but imho this is one of those classic editions that will be well read and referred to!!

Cheers all
Roger

Very Happy

Great minds think alike, Bob - I reckon in HO Argenton would (just) go into an APA box
Steve, apologies for the drawing error - I wondered why it went in so easily!

All UK copies have been despatched

Hum. Thanks Jack. Guess who's got an empty APA box sat in the garage at the moment. It's still a no... Or a maybe... Or a not yet...

I've got a bit of an LRT bug at the moment, having seen the new tram terminus at East Didsbury recently. Also on a high with fishing line power having spent the weekend playing with Hazy Days at a show. Look out for a very small pointless, powerless, perhaps even senseless, N scale tram thingy coming to a pick and mix microlayouts thread near here soon.

Meanwhile, that APA still sits on the shelf temptingly. Wink

Also, reminder to self. Subs need renewing before the next issue is due out.

I even had a look on Ebay for one of the HO 0-6-0 Plymouths - took one look at the price and postage of the only one on there - and said "No Thank You! (or words to that effect!)

No Gene - this one - 400469690291 - the seller must be out of his mind at that price!

Still listed, Giles - but too far to go "on spec !"

I would like to apologise for the quality of the photos in the Starker article. I was hoping they were clearer than that.

Thanks, Jack; I don't actually need any right now, but I'm interested to know they're still around. Having moved to the catchment area of a different store I still haven't found where they keep everything yet.
