    What's your latest acquisition?

    Very nice @Iskra. I love bubble cars and like you say it’ll look at home on your layout.

    The Woodfield branch

    I think that’ll work well with the coal, there’s definitely enough room to do a thin stage. Or you could do a bigger one and have it removable maybe? Just have it on when you’re running trains?

    Comedic "things you would ban" (i.e. minor things that annoy you in a lighthearted way)

    Oh god this one. The modern equivalent of “Computer says no.” “I’m sorry about the delay sir. Our entire system went down this afternoon…” Right. Get a piece of paper, scrunch it into a little ball, stuff it up your nose and sing the (insert country of your choice) Tongan National anthem...

    I got it sorted in the end but then had to go out for a spur of the moment curry with Mrs C as therapy. ;)

    Renewing your car insurance (or basically anything these days) when you’ve got limited time in the evenings and well, just please make it actually work before I throw the phone across the room.

    The Woodfield branch

    I must say that there’s some very nice looking ballast going down there and your experiment has been interesting. :) 1635264215 I really like the track layout especially around the shed. It’s always good to have a couple of outside stabling roads the way you’ve got it set up.

    Heaton Lodge Junction: Britain’s Biggest Model Railway

    It’s an amazing railway. I love the way he’s caught the bleak nature of the season and place.

    What's your latest acquisition?

    Yeah I’ll give it a try but I think I might need to set a crowd funding page. :lol: @Iskra - both coaches look lovely but the job TMC have done on the blood & custard LNER one has really bought the detail out hasn’t it?

    Strangest livery/train combination?

    There’s some good stuff in your list. A couple more to add from preservation sector: Class 15 D8233 in red stripe Railfreight livery… https://www.flickr.com/photos/adogriff/4682929113 And Hymek D7017 in ‘Dutch’. Not a fan of fictional liveries usually, but this looked really good...
