Maybe we could add any good/interesting/funny links on this thread.

***Brian - You've let the cat out of the bag for Warley's 2008 theme.

"Warley 2008 - Launch of new bachmann large scale trains, narrower aisles and more small traders to increase the non-stop action"

Gary'll be really annoyed now!

Weymouth harbour?

Warley 2008?

The aisles were too wide in 2007 and something like this to fill the gap would be lubly jubly with stop off points at Hornby Station, Bachmann Station, Squires Station, Peco Station and Digitrax Station.

Chiltern Railways could surely organise something.

Happy modelling
Gary

Just an aside to this video has anyone taken any of their videos of their layout and tried to post it on you tube as I have just tried but when I went to play the video back it appeared to be upside down but apart from the fact that it would be ok for the australians among us to watch but over here in blighty the video is on the wrong way up. Any ideas?

The video plays normally on my computer before uploading and the right way up before any of you ask?

If I remember correctly the loco & coaches were due for scrapping anyway.

The demonstration was staged to show the public just how safe moving Nuclear Flasks containing fuel rods actually was. The flask was battered but remained intact, so it was not that much of a waste.

No doubt BRITHO will be along later with some more (or correct) information.

The locomotive, a class 46 was due to be withdrawn and was sold to the CEGB for the purposes of this demonstration. The loco was upgraded to run at 100mph (normally rated at 90mph). The three BR mark 1s were already withdrawn and were bought as such. The test took place on the Old Dalby (spelling?) test track in Derbyshire. Somewhere in the Euroscale library we have the pamphlet issued by the CEGB at the time.

Correct spelling BritHO but you've moved the line. Last time I saw the test track it ran from Meltom Mowbray (Shut up about pork pies) and just short of Tollerton, before Dr Beeching it used to run into Nottingham Victoria. It's also the same stetch of track that the Penolinos were tested on before they went into service. The Melton end runs past the back of my old school. When they did the test, the crash happened at the other end and was audiable in Melton. IIRC it was shown live and the sound got to us before the live pictures which went via satalite.
