As one who shall remain nameless said "I hope you're going to post something worthwhile for your 2000th post" I thought I would introduce myself.

I actually registered with the forum in May 2006 and, like many others, lurked for a few months before making my first post in September 2006.

I have been interested in anything with wheels on since birth according to my parents, and it is rumoured that I was born to the sound of a Bulleid pacific passing the bottom of the garden. I received my first trainset, a Triang clockwork, for my fifth birthday in May 1963 and have never looked back since.

Since that first set i have dabbled in Z, N, TT, HO, OO, and O both standard and narrow gauges. I hve now settled on HO but unlike most other modellers on the forum I have decided to model the British scene (Yes I am mad).

As most of you probably know I am the scenics man on St Laurent and assist dbclass50 with Euroscale.

Living alone as I do (apart from Buzz the stupidblack cat - destruction of scenery a speciality) I have plenty of time available for the hobby, it's just a pity I have to go out and earn a living.

Regards

From the above I deduced that you were born in '58, one thing lead to another and next thing you know the following is going round my head.............


BRUCE DICKINSON
Born In 58
(B. Dickinson/ J. Gers)

Born in a mining town in '58.
When black and white TV was up to date.
And men where still around.
Who fought for freedom. Stood their ground and died.
That I could be alive and see the damage,
that we've managed since.
In this septed isle. Is nothing sacred.
Just a one square mile.

CHORUS:
Justice and Liberty. You can buy what you don't get free.
In a world of steel and glass. We bury our past.

On and On. We slept till dawn. When we awoke, we hardly spoke.

My grandfather taught me how to fight.
Old fashioned stuff like wrong and right.
But all around I see his morals buried in a mess
Of money troubles, Born in a mining town in '58.
When black and white TV was up to date.
And men where still around.
Who fought for freedom, stood their ground and died.

REPEAT CHORUS

On and On. We slept till dawn.
When we awoke, it was, all the same.

From Bruce Dickinsons Tattooed Milionaire album.

Welcome to the forum BRITHO!
I look forward to your contributions (as ever), and congratulations on being only the sixth member to date who has successfully escaped from the newbie moderation zone!

Pets can be a trifle annoying near a layout...or in a tunnel on it - an N scale loco is just the right size for my corn snake to swallow!

Congratulations on 2,000 Britho!
I appreciate your tolerant and humorous postings!
I don't think I'll ever escape from the moderation zone!

I started only five days after Doug...at least no one can call me a windbag!

Maybe we should get out more?


I've never met a "stupid" cat. Ours is a rather cunning little minx but fortunately has not tried climbing the loft ladder so the railway is safe...

Congratulations just the same

Yup half a century in May and a few days over 30 years since I first met Bruce.

It's nice to see so many of us keep cats (or do they keep us?) they must go well together.

Nice to know my sense of humour is appreciated - I'll try and keep it up for the next 2000!

Will you be a Twickenham on the 5th July for Maidens first ever UK stadium show?

And cats are very much the ones in charge, even seen a book for them called "How to train your owners"

Can't make Twickers


However I do have the book in question - I'm sure the little

You have a cat so I know you don't mean what ever you censored out,
They're better than living with rabbits. My Missus hade a male one, it ate the curtians, carpet, furniture and phone cable, would eat anything we were eating, curry, pizza, chips, chocolate as well as all the usual rabbit foods. The only thing this rabbit ever turned it's nose up at was pumpkin!
Was randy as, well a rabbit but didn't have a mate so he'd jump on her arm and go for it.
One crazy animal.
