Isn't the West Highland Terrier the pet dog that the Chelsea manager has lost thanks to a police bungle?

And whilst we are on the subject of dogs who can think of trains that were named after dogs?

An example off the top of my head is the Drummond Bulldog.

A question for those who wish to gain egghead status.

Happy modelling

Bachmann will be offering Scottie Terrier Class37/4 with the large logo "Aluminium 100" in their new rebodied range of Class 37 locos so for the first time in many years a direct comparison between 2 new models released in the same year will be able to be made in OO. I am not sure when this was last possible.

Happy modelling

Think we just need VI Trains to do the Royal Scotmsan liveried ones and that would basically be most liveries on the 37/4s done.

Not quite what you mean by trains named after dogs but one particular loco springs to mind.
47711 Greyfriars Bobby.

Anyway Mourinho's mutt is a Yorkie named Gullit after a certain former Chelsea manager.
As far as I'm aware the other 50% of the vitrains loco's are allocated to Geoffrey Allisons. Plus there has been a direct review head to head of the vitrains and Bachmann 37's in this months model rail.
