Better not show pix of those obsolete, inaccurate, immoral, and non eco-frendly pound weights---the Euro cops will be around to gather them up if word gets out that you are hording them.

Just a word of warning.

Best give them quietly to Salada. I've heard that he is an Euro anarchistic bloke and is building a trabouchet in his back garden to fire stuff at Brussels.


You know who

Thanks for what I take to be the compliments !
I have Brussels' coordinates spot on, after allowing for British Summer Time - just can't get sufficient range yet.

Wow, belt & braces eh Si ?. TWO set squares !. MEK welds require some pressure to unite. Maybe, with such long, parallel faces (the long brick row pieces) the MEK is only fusing the two together at high spots where they touch ?. More gold please for that !.

Regards,                   Michael

Hi Herb.

I put my trust in quality old school British iron !

Thought about 'going digital' ... But why waste electrons ? :!:

The Euro-Cops are checking Michaels kitchen for missing draw-slides !

:Crazy:

Ha, I thought the buildings in Rye town were bad Si. That Pi**es all over them.

It actually looks like the crocked house at Dymchurch amusement park.

Them walls your doing are looking nice and square, should have left them as they were and modelled the pub. Dan:bg:

Cheers Dan

Hi Dan.

Thanks very much for the Birthday Greetings !
The Italeri kits are pretty cool.
Some of the 'field tools' set is assembled & heading for the paintshop.
The Italeri 'brick walls' for the under-construction critter-workshop are well on the way too...
...pix. to follow.
My favorite present was THE MOOSE though ! :moose:



Wolfgang meets moose ! :shocked:

Cheers.

Si. :P

As for the Crooked Pub ... That boozer is BONKERS ! (_!_)

I heard you were quite good at that sort of thing.............................  She looks pretty good topless to me, well done Si.


Meanwhile, the Euro-Cops draw a blank in my kitchen - all slide-runners removed.





Practically everything else removed as well as I have been told that we "need" a new kitchen. I am just having a break from chasing out the walls for new cable conduits. Now I need a pint or three in a crooked pub; or, where we live, just a pub full of crooks !.

Cheers,               Michael

Hi Michael.

It's not just that you will be able to enjoy your beans on toast in 5* Hilton style.
Think of it as an investment.
One day YOU will 'need' funds & expansion for Chavez Junction !
Keep the shareholders sweet.

If the kitchen refurb. gets too much...
...you can always enlarge one of the A.C socket holes; & escape throught it !
It worked for Clint Eastwood.

- - - - - - -

My 'topless' Google searches weren't turning up any locomotives...
...so I tried 'cabless' instead.

Came up with this interesting cabless Shay.
Top, yes ... Cab, no.

Not sure if Lima actually shipped 'em without 'proper' cabs.
I have heard stories of wooden-cabs burning down & being replaced.
But for hot climates, a top is desirable; whereas a cab probably isn't.
Mmmm...



I think this photo might have been on Freerails before.
Either the negative got printed backwards...
...or this is a rare Shay, with the interesting-bits on the 'wrong side' !

Adious Amigos.

Si. :java::mex:

That's an English shay.  The drive is on the "wrong" side like the autos. :bg::bg:
Just kidding.

Good reference picture though.

Hi Dave.

Thanks for joggin' my memory on the 'lefty' story.
I remembering thinking WHY ? at the time.
It must have cost MORE surely; with tech-drawing, parts, confussion etc. !
There must have been a GOOD reason for it.

How about this.
I'm guessing Shay engineers look out on the non-cylinder side.
With them so near the cab; the steam etc. must be a bit of a hazard ?
Perhaps the Brit. railway that ordered it had a signaling system...
...& it was installed on the right-hand side of the track.
Hence, steamy stuff on the left-hand side.

Make any sense to anyone ?

Here's a cabless 'biggie' with a pretty nice full-length roof.



Si. :moose:
