I'm went and stood standing as per Shortliner's instructions, then noticed a tiny hole in the floor where the ants are getting in. Now suitably full of ant poison.

The hole that is, not me. I'm still watching the letter-box, but I've sat down now and also watching the road for postie's van.

And Stony Stratford.

Good to see the Watchet article in it too. I first saw this in the January 1980 edition of Model Trains magazine. I did go there as a small child, there is a photo' of me standing next to a road sign saying "Watchet, please drive slowly"

Thanks for that; I'm always a little worried when re-visiting earlier articles that there will be no more to say, and a straight rehash might be boring. There will be a little more on the modelling possibilities next time, with some prototype track plans, both of the Watchet harbour area (showing the GWR and WSMR) and some of the stations on the mineral line, where there are some small areas that could be adapted for layouts. I didn't get them to Chris until after he'd made up the page using the original layout ideas. There should also be some more Victorian-era pictures, too.

Looking at the photo of train coming off harbour, wondering if Watchet was an important for import of esparto grass, it was used in paper making. A friend has being researching a local paper mill here and esparto grass was used, so trying to trace its route from Spain and North Africa.

I was a little surprised and modestly pleased to see I was "mentioned in dispatches".

Did it make you feel old, though..?? Shocked
I still have my entire 1980 & 1981 Model Trains collections, although some are not my originals, which I often wore out with much re-reading..!!

Mine arrived Thursday - excellent reading so far - many thanks Very Happy

Back from the Reading "Association of Larger Scale Railway Modellers" show. Joined up too and bought a shiny red mug as well as a few other things.. Embarassed

Went to Abingdon last night with 3 pals (Marc, Al and Big Dave) and had more than several pints of beer and curry more beer in a pub that finally called last orders at 1am. After the show we went to Pendon for a cup of tea etc.
