translation of above, i am hot and sweaty in the attic corners with the soldering iron full on, coughing due to fumes in corners, even with a wee fan on,  splutter splutter goes the solder,

troll translation, wayside has virus, turn off iron and go to bed.

Dcc translation, if incorrect signal from track, it may not be from an isolated, track, or the signal may be too week, some decoders make engines cough and shudder as they slow down.

Sure, I've had a bit of a cough for years, does that mean I'm ahead of me time....?

Of course, the C-19 arrived here many years ago, in the form of this Avro Anson variant.

It's more likely welding all that galvanised stuff i did years ago, they used to get us to drink a " medicinal" pint of milk before starting !

sorry to hear that, often when we glorify old industrial times, we tend to forget those who paid in suffering. even today, with all the health and safety there's still work that takes its toll.

I didn't do too badly at all compared to some poor souls who got exposed to blue asbestos for instance. A friend of mine's father sadly passed away as a result of asbestos, he could even name the job he was on when it likely started....  I always say the railway ( especially in England ) couldn't have even existed without those generations of mainly Irish lads digging massive tunnels and cuttings etc through solid hillsides, with nothing but hand tools.

yip, to above,,

since i started looking up the history of trains, it dawned on me, that the cargos were often very bad for nature, environment and people, even coal wagons are today replaced by conifer forest wagons, which most say aint good either, mine ores and spoil, nuclear flasks, ammonia fertiliser, peat and ash, the day old chickens, beet n cattle were safest.
