Having spent all my 'modelling time' in the DAMN garden lately !... :f:
...I collapsed in front of the tube the other evening...
...and caught Wallace & Gromit in 'The Wrong Trousers'. :)

Gromit does the FASTEST sectional-track laying EVER in this episode... :shocked: he tries to save Wallace from a psychotic loco-driving penguin !

There's a ton of top plasticine railroading action in 'The Wrong Trousers'...
...highly recommended !
(especialy for exausted brain-dead gardeners) :slow:

Anyhow, my knackered-neurons came up with the idea, that since the Mysterious Moose Mountain R.O.W now stands at 1-yard (much less than Gromits !)...
...maybe I should try and run a train ! :!:

In a momment of insanity, probably induced by too much gardening, a few years back...
...I gave away THREE train power-pack/throttles ! :Crazy:
(& a bunch of other stuff; I now wish I had)

Oh well; I did keep my D.I.Y train-throttle, which I think was made when I was 14 ! :bg:

I thought I'd dusted it off a bit better before taking the pic. ! ;)

The 'accelerate button' busted, sometime during the previous millennium...
(that's the 20th, NOT 19th-century !)
...& needed replacing (bodgeing !). :dt:

Other than that, it works great; just the job for Mysterious Moose Mountain ! :s::s::s::s::s:

Time for a bit of a refurb on the handset me-thinks.
Moooooodern 21st-century electronics has a ton of cool parts available...
...some of which I already have my beady lil' eyes on, for an UPGRADE !
