    And here I always thought you were Welsh by birth. Live and learn. ;-)

    LOL Welsh by marriage I am afraid, my 2nd husband was Welsh, and as number 3 and I have never bothered to get married I still have my late husband's surname. I do have both Irish and Scots blood in reasonably large proportions, does that count.

    Oh and BTW I can pronounce Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwll-llantysiliogogogoch
    I'll be _really_ impressed if you typed it from memory ;-).

    Parkside Cargo!!!!

    Excellent!

    However, there is a bit of confusion. The requirements list lists Parkside Boxcar three times. But the description claims that what is required is Parkside Passenger Car. I"ve got both, and am assuming that the Passenger car is what is needed for the boggies, but you might want to have somebody straighten out the confusion.

    Right at the moment the site is refusing to let me look at anything but the main store page (won't load the promos except as the tiny thumdnails under the main illo) but even if it would I doubt I'd be able to tell the difference just by looking at the promo illustration.

    Thanks :)

    Yes, you're correct - it's just the bogies required like the other sets. Will give someone a nudge to take a look at the page :)

    Well I recalled you mentioning it before - and while I didn't make the first set, I had the time to add it into this one. :)

    Tied to the tracks and the trains keep coming...

    yup, where i am from every train is fitted with a plow front and back, they leave em on all year, never see one run with out it, so its a welcome detail.

    If the winter gets really bad they start using these things.... http://www.pbase.com/image/133827067/original.jpg yup, that is a snow blower

    We have a snow melter, a special train with a 3MW heater that will melt the snow and store the water in tanks that it then can dump where it is better suited.A cool piece of machinery ;-)

    Btw, speaking of machinery, one thing I think Jack should do is a Newspaper printing press, that could be so cool, and such a perfect addition to the Parkside, Parkside Herald. A Printing press plus the building printer room). As you are in Britain it will probably be a Goss Press*.

    * The biggest flaw in the James Bond Movie "Tomorrow Never Dies" is the battle scene inside the printing press. They are supposed to be in Germany, but the presses are from Goss, an american company (probably filmed in London as UK uses mostly Goss presses). Germans use German printing presses, MAN-Roland, KBA or a Wifag from Switzerland, but never the American Goss press.

    Oh! Oh! Oh! Sounds good! And what does a Newspaper printing press need? Hm?

    Paper! And so there will be also a papermill cool... and by chance... I've got some pictures of one :P

    Well, not knowing your mother I can't say one way or the other, but if she hadn't married your father, well then there wouldn't be . . . .

    ~GASP~ THERE'D BE NO CHOHOLE!!!

    Now that's something I just can't fathom. :-S

    LOL. It's something to do with having a Great grandfather who was the son of an Earl who got a chambermaid into trouble, and the chambermaid just happened to be my great grandmother. Quite upsetting to one you know, knowing that one is descended from a bastard line, and I use the expression in the truest sense of the word..

    Accordingly to gossip, some Victorian member of the gentry (not a grand title, if any title) married his mistress off to his complaisant gamekeeper, who didn't actually get any conjugal benefit or have any connection to the children of the marriage - certainly one can imagine a resemblance between a photo of a later member of the family and some later Haseltines.

    Wait. You're royal? Do I need to bow and scrape when I meet you? As a moderator that is a given, I know. :lol:

    If people tell me that I'm a bastard I generally say, "true, and I have a birth certificate to prove it. What's your excuse?" :)

    As I said in another post, it is on a bastard line, and as a moderator I guess that's another given. :coolgrin:

    Nice to see you all keeping the thread alive! I'm currently laid up with some bugs.. well, when I say laid up I'm still here UV mapping, but my brain is somewhere else.

    Good excuse for the old medicinal whiskey!

    ROFL @ Chocole, made me think about the joke about you make a Finnish summer soup, you pour Vodka in a flowery soup bowl.

    You both just caught me finishing my breakfast, and I just sprayed my monitor with a mouth full of water. ~ROFL~

    What a way to start the day!
