Nice. Gretsch, I presume?
Yup. It’s a heavily modified 1969 Anniversary.

Re: Planning Time before the Proving Trial?

I'm not involved, Nigel, but have been following the BBP's progress. Like you, I certainly hope it all goes well for the BBP too.

Re: Spoon frogs and other such craft work

Took this on Saturday evening in the village of Maldon, about 40 or so miles from where I live in Victoria. The locomotive is a Victorian Railways first series T class (often referred to as "Flat Tops" or "Squash Boxes" - can't imagine why...), which were built in 1955 or '56 by Clyde Engineering in...

Re: Annoying behaviour of Change.org

There should be an 'Unsubscribe' button somewhere there. Hit that, and follow the instructions (if any).

Re: The Vulcan XH558 & General Aviation Thread

They were only under for 47 years...That'll teach me to rely on my memory (it's rubbish at the best of times).

Re: The Vulcan XH558 & General Aviation Thread

They do, but most aren't beyond redemption. Reminds me of the two Rogers built steam locos which were used as fill for a dam wall in New Zealand. They were down there in the mud for nearly 100 years. The mob who wanted them sent a probe down, and found them. When they finally excavated them out, the...

Re: SIGN THE PETITION PLEASE TO LET THE BLUEBIRD RUN

filertron. good to exchange comments in an adult manner thank you. I have it on very good authority, indeed I am entirely satisfied otherwise I would not support it, that the 2013 document was submitted by the BBP for consideration by the Ruskin trustees but was never signed by the trustees. One ca...

Re: SIGN THE PETITION PLEASE TO LET THE BLUEBIRD RUN

Thanks for your reply, Ernie. May I ask; exactly what difference would it make if the Ruskin and the BBP make an agreement prior to K7 returning to Coniston? I don't understand why it needs to be in the museum before such an agreement is reached. It should not be left in the control of a business ma...
