    • Hi Stevie,  In case it is any help, I just successfully sent a PM with a photo.  I 'dragged and dropped' the JPG into the message body and it appeared after a few seconds and sent ok.  Noel
    • Hi Stephen,   What is the message (or better still, grab a screenshot of it?)
    • I'm getting a message about a problem uploading photos to a PM. I don't think it's me because you have made it so simple following the upgrade.   Stephen
    • The final coach in the excursion set is an Ian Kirk LNER kit, intended to represent some sort of GNR presence in the train. The kit was bought in the now gone Kings Cross model shop in London. I used to fly to London on business quite a lot in days gone by and often used the original Ryanair service from Dublin into Luton, on the BAC 1-11s. The journey involved a bus from Luton airport to the railway station and then train into a then somewhat shabby St Pancras. I always tried to create a spare 10/15 minutes at the end of the day, to go into the model shop across the road from Kings Cross station and therefore very close to St Pancras. The kit was built as intended. You will note the very prototypical broken window......no idea how that happened and the roof is glued in place! Glover
    • My excursion set is completed by two further coaches, both built a good many years ago. This is a Ratio Midland Railway all third. I remember buying the kit in the old and wonderful model shop in Phibsboro. I bought metal buffers from that treasure throve display on the counter. The original Ratio bogies gave up the ghost many years ago and were replaced by Bachman LMS bogies. It's really too short: it should be a 60 footer. It would be relatively straight forward to build to the correct length using two of the Ratio kits ( buy three kits and you should get two coaches) but it's not on my priority list at the moment.
