First let me say that the my comments on RM in the last post were purely observations - heartfelt , but observations none the less. What concerns me with mug shots is that the hobby is tarred with a dirty old man tag at the best of times without underlining that by publishing photos of modellers who, to put it gently are not in their first flush of youth. However once you follow that train of thought then you are soon picking layouts not by quality or WHY, but to show a balanced age range. (Anyone remember Kendoon in MRJ many years back? Sweet child, very shy and retiring).
Passing through Brighton station yesterday I caught this announcement: 'Will passengers please note that the London to Brighton bike ride will take place on the 19th June. No cycles will be carried on trains between Brighton and London on this day.'
Is this not the most bizarre statement you've ever heard? Hundreds of potential customers and no forward planning or capability. Did we not used to run run football specials and summer Saturday extras not to mention pigeon trains?
Thanks to my not so mystery commenter. 13th not 16th. If I've understood that correctly.
