So the wait is finally over B 121 & B135 landed safely in D5 this afternoon, living close to the Airport has its advantages              

I told him not to paint it, but he did sort out the valve gear.          

Some more brass from the MRSI Brendan had a couple of hours to kill.........             And then there were 2!

Cap''n  road prison 36, what we've got here is a failure to communicate. Some men you just can't reach. So you get what we had here last week, which is the way he wants it, well he gets it. I don't like it any more than you men. You gonna get used to wearin them chains for a while Luke. Don't you ever stop listenin to them clinking. Cause they gonna remind you of what I've been sayin, for your own good.

Luke replies I wish you'd stop bein so good to me cap'n.

These last few posts remind. me of my favourite scene from Cool hand Luke.

Keep trying Dave, don't give up.

Rich,

Its Christmas man, damn the expense

Thanks, but If you got another chance could you take a photo of them again in better light. There are a bit in the shade to see the side of the containers and side of the wagons.

Hi Noel!

You’re sure you didn’t just mix up the lids there with the excitement of taking them out of their boxes now? You should know not to contaminate Exhibit A with Exhibit B&I 😎 (all the Specsavers had left)

Happy New Year!

Arrived this morning from the USA

Bought on eBay and when I won the auction, at considerable expense, the seller tells me he does not do International postage and wants to cancel the sale.

So after a few calls to a fellow collector in Texas,( Thanks P) I managed to get him to post to Texas and then they were forwarded to D05

On page 22 there is a picture of the O Gauge Sundries wagon in a first issue box, ref no 6711

This wagon is in a later issue box and carries a 31 prefix, so its 31 6711

I wasn't aware of this new numbered wagon previously, so now the hunt is on for any others

This collecting is tough work people.

For the non Specksavered ones among us there is some foreign instructions on this box that does not appear in the original one

Saved from the bid

While dumpind some bits today I found this ad 

Came from an early Railway Modeller

And as the gods would have it something very interesting (to me) on the reverse

Love the lunch hour 1.30 pm - 3pm, hope Bosko takes note Fran.

This is an ad for the Wrenn 152 set ( 1:52?)

At the time Wrenn amalgamated with Tri Ang they were producing these sets

Unfortunatly Tri Ang  had just bought  Scalex who made a tin plate racing car set. They decided to replace the tin with plastic

and so part of the deal with Wrenn was that they ceased production of the 152 set, which was a far superior set at that time

If you look at the ad you will see a deflector section, which allowed overtaking while racing

They were made in both DC & AC
