  2. Why would anyone bad mouth Paddy? Things may take longer to come to fruition than we would like but when the product lands it is always worth the wait. My only gripe is that the wife only has two kidneys that I can put on Ebay. I could put the whole lot of her up but people ALWAYS want photos and well, err, there's the rub. I could learn how to do Photoshop but then buyers are fussy when the item does not look remotely like the description photos. So Paddy if you are reading this, if you think you have problems dealing with your supplier in China... Anyway how do we go about getting Leo to have a referendum for a "St Paddy Murphy day"?
  3. I will look favourably on your bid. (No returns accepted)

Wrenneire wrote "All things going well they will then go into full production and should be with us September/Early October" Should be enough time to get the wife into shape before she goes on EBAY. Sellers on EBAY always seem to exaggerate the condition of their items also some have a no returns policy. What can go wrong....?
  5. Yep I heard about that. Seems there's some track booked in Inchicore where two IRM "A" class locos are to haul the real thing for a hundred yards.

  8. By rights this should be in a "Jokes" thread but as it is a true story it ended up here. A couple of local lads headed off to a music festival in a car and by all accounts they thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Festival over, somewhat the worse for wear, they headed back to the field where they had parked the car and there it was…...gone. Yep the car was nowhere to be seen. So you can imagine the state of the two well hung over festival goers as they trudged back out to the road. Luckily they came across a member of the boys in blue who was out directing the festival traffic. They unloaded their tale of woe on the officer who was most sympathetic and surprisingly helpful. He pointed out that owing to the festival traffic it was unlikely that the stolen car would have been driven very far. He got the details, got on the radio and alerted all the patrols in the area. The two lads gave personal details and trudged on to the nearest town. A couple of hundred yards down the road they spotted the car parked in a field. Yep you guessed it. Being somewhat below par after a weekend of festival festivities they had gone to the wrong field to collect the car. Over joyed the two lads collected the car and headed out on to the road to join the festival traffic. Half mile down the road they were pulled over by the lads in blue who recognised the car as the one reported stolen a short time earlier. Definitely a festival to remember
  9. A spokesperson for us men..
  10. Never had this problem with the female sex i.e. which one to choose
  11. I suppose that six or even seven fingers could be of benefit servicing an "A" class or MM 121 loco. Where's the Golden Pages? Or is it all Google in this age?
  12. Right, with D Day fast approaching some serious thought has to be put into how to fund the purchase of one (or more) of these desirable items. I figure that with every advance order received by the boys in head office, a return e-mail could be sent. Instead of a receipt it would be a "threaten to kidnap note" unless X amount is paid over. This could be sent to the e-mail address used by my nearest and dearest. I am just trying to figure out how many "A" classes the Mrs would think I am worth... Next I need a plan to fund a 121 ...or two...or three... Ideas will be most welcome.

  14. Came across a new form of contraception. It's called "Putting on your glasses"....
