    That position is reserved for:-
    [a] a reporter from the Hartley Hill Examiner, the source of some of the news about the layout;
    [c] the S7 Newsletter Editor so that he can obtain images for the publication.

    And option "b"? that option leads to an interesting funny in that succeeding text becomes bold :rolleyes: .

    regards, Graham

    Hi before I do start any scriblings I do need to say a very big thank you to Graham for offering to build the point work and a good deal of the track work for Hartley Hill . I don't think that this project would have got off of the ground if he hadn't the amount of research and work that he has put in is quite frankly astonishing .So. A very big thank you Graham.

    "We know where you live"... roughly... ;) .

    This thread has no modelling content as yet... :( .

    Nor any of the to-be-expected WT-off-the-cuff comments about colour... :confused: .

    Maybe all of the usual suspects are taking a Kernow experience ;) ?

    :thumbs:
     
  9. Because we can have any colour we want, as long as it is (blackberry) black?

    I did notice that even when "speechless", you managed to utter a word...
    ...for once, I was being too polite to comment.
    I will leave Adrian to comment on that: maybe he will post without any words?

    Rather more likely is that, as we have discussed in Admin, we simply haven't the faintest idea what's going on in this thread....

  14. What you need here, Jordan, is to relax behind the first two rules of philosophy:

    The First Law of Philosophy: For every philosopher, there exists an equal and opposite philosopher.
    The Second Law of Philosophy: They're both wrong.

    Why should WT-readers believe Dunkley's hypothesis that the Second Law is as written and verifiable?

    :confused:

    I tend to lean to the "Hitch Hiker's Guide" view of Philosophers..... it goes something like:-
    1st Philosopher (importantly) :- "We are Philosophers......"
    2nd Philosopher (waving a warning finger) :- "But we might not be...."
    :rolleyes:

    Well I may well move this as per the legoman or the Blue brigade thread, that way anybody can chunter on, but everyone knows its just aimless b*****ks - not that there is anything wrong with that in the right place ;)
     
  18. Because I am arguably* the forum's greatest philosopher.
    "We most definitely are philosophers."

    *Buy me a couple of pints, and I am happy to argue this point.

    That would be a university philosophy department, right? I have heard some right bollocks (not an obscene word, and legally defined as such thanks to the Sex Pistols) come out of those places...

    John has favoured me with photos of some of the LNWR stock which will run on Hartley Hill and asked that I post some of those photos. Now my railway interests are very broad in respect of a few specific subjects and those interests do not encompass LNWR engines and wagons. So I shall post the pikkies and trust that John comes along to either answer questions or provide some captions.

    For those who have been following the "Wood Staining" thread, note the colour of some of the planks in the D1 open wagon.

    Nice wagons John, whats your source of solebar numberplates ??. Ive looked around and cannot find any. In view of what is available in 7mm for the LNW this seems somewhat surprising !.
    Cheers Tony.
