  1. £28 to the Republic isn't free... and yet it doesn't even have to cross the Irish Sea...
  2. I always saw them as more of a sad or depressed look about them
  3. Hi all, I just spotted this on Donedeal - may be a member on here that is selling, but just thought I'd post it up in case anybody is looking for bits https://www.donedeal.ie/hobbies-for-sale/hornby-lima-bachman-fleichman-airfix-trains/23542757
  4. Wasn't on my radar, but just ordered a copy there now!

    KMCE's Workbench

    Has me thinking of a Barna shed!
  6. Living in Athlone, I get to hear them accelerating after they cross the Shannon, heading west on freight workings. There is no mistaking the GM sound as it carries on the wind!
  7. "Gouger Watch" more like!
  8. Shame he's only got the one for sale - no chance of making a full rake... 😂
  9. Flats & two A's already paid for!
  10. Thankfully there is a gap between the IE and IR liveries - it'll give the wallet time to recover!!
  11. Reminds me of the time a lad I work with announced he got the hostname 'fourhorsemen.com', which I said I thought would have been taken already. It turns out that he mispelled, and had actually reserved 'fourhoursemen.com' instead! 🤣🤣🤣
  12. They look the part! Plenty of uses for them - weathered up they'd look perfect in the corner of a rural bus depot even
  13. An Post also charge a 'handling fee' if your item gets stopped for duty by Customs: "A fee of 1% of the value, with a minimum charge of €10 per packet or parcel, is charged by An Post for customs clearance of parcels imported from countries outside the EU. This fee is in addition to any duty or VAT payable." The thing that really annoys me is that Customs will base the duty they charge you on the price of the item plus postage costs, which I don't think is fair. "If your goods have: a customs value (including cost, transport, insurance and handling charges) of €22 or less you will not have to pay Customs Duty or VAT a customs value of more than €22 you will have to pay VAT an intrinsic value (the value of the goods alone excluding transport, insurance and handling charges) of more than €150 you will have to pay Customs Duty."
  14. Don't you mean that the bedroom had an ensuite kitchen? 😉
