    They do look a bit funny. Like joke shop puddings.

    I'd give my right arm for some snow. Anything other than this damned rain. :rolleyes:

    Great story Jack. I wonder how much rainfall they've had up there this year given how much the rest of England has had. :(

    :) This one was made on location during a mo'bike run in the Morvan some years ago. With a glass (-or two-) of local bourru wine it helped handle the low temps of winter. ;) DSCN1390.jpg

    Happy belated Lancashire Day, and happy Thanksgiving to all! Great posts by everyone, I'll have to catch up on comments later.

    For my emergency kit, never hurts to have some dehydrated water handy!:D

    Actually very close to where our friend @Dschal was the other year, but it sure does rain a lot in that area :rolleyes: :) :thumbsup:

    Yeah, must have been a fair bit david! :eek: I was talking to an old feller I know today, well into his 80's, and still riding his Velocette, and he was saying it's the wettest Autumn he can remember o_O

    That's interesting JP, great pics :cool: :thumbsup:

    LOL! :D I remember, when I was 4, my best friend told me that his dad had been telling him about dehydrated water, and he didn't understand that it was a joke! :D :thumbsup:

    That looks good, I had to look up marionberry :) Hope you're having a great day :) :thumbsup:

    GEC have really knocked it out of the park with some of their jigging these past few years I think Ron, and Charlie has definitely had the cream of the crop :) :thumbsup:

    That takes me back to when i used to catch the Melbourne to Warrnambool train with my mum for the school holidays, A, B Class locomotive, pulling 6 carriages, with a walk way down the right hand side, that you could walk the length of the train and muck around in and a goods carriage with the guard at the rear. Thanks mate for the post, and you have a good weekend.:):thumbsup:

    That's it pal, I don't remember how long they were using that train for here, but it was certainly into the late 1980's :) I used to really like those old compartments :cool: Have a good weekend yourself my friend :) :thumbsup:

    [​IMG] Posting this knife so i do not get too far off track:rolleyes: and get the strap. But there is a thing called Karma Jack, and it is in play here. You posted your picture of the railway train that you used to catch, and we had a brief catch up about the old railways. I was going to my local model railway shop this morning anyway, now that is Karma. This is my plan, i love model railways, especially those created around the fifties and sixties, but i do not have the room to have one anymore. So i am going to create, as realistically as possible a Australian country town from the fifties - sixties in N gauge, with railway station and surrounding buildings and roads. Have already started purchasing the kits of buildings, and this morning going to look at rolling stock.;)

    That sounds very cool :cool: I used to go and watch the model railway exhibitions in the Cutler's Hall in Sheffield with my grandma, who made me this set-up for my 3rd or 4th birthday :) :thumbsup:
