    Two leds are also the same as a switch that is on/off/on. The switch toggle also indicates the direction of the setting.

    Bird Photographs

    Nice photos Mick. I must try to upload a photo taken the other day. I was in my armchair and something flashed by my shoulder and there was a crash at the front window. An unexpected visitor had come at high speed through the open back door, not realising that the view in front was in fact glass. I then found myself holding a stunned Sparrowhawk. My wife couldn't even get the lens cap off my camera, so the resulting photo is not as good as it should be. I am priviledged to have seen it fly off at the speed of sound when I let it go. Sorry that I am such a scruff.

    Looks great Mick. Hope you haven't forgotten all of those lovely weathered mineral wagons too. I bet they will look fantastic crossing the girder bridge.

    A ring of copper wire glued to the top of the chimney and painted will give you a lip.

    When I was a small boy in the early 1950s (I was 70 last weekend) my favourite books were Sammy the Shunter. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sammy_the_Shunter I wonder why Thomas the Tank became so popular when Sammy just disappeared?
  9. Instead of a slide switch that needs some effort to move, why not use a mini microswitch that only needs some sort of wiper to activate. It's still on or off after all.

    Mick's Drivel

    I have always really struggled to stop smoking. Help from Doctors, or Pharmacists, or anything else, and within a couple of hours I would be bad tempered and headachey. 55 years I have been a smoker, and just over a month ago, with no previous thought, I stubbed out a cigarette and thought to myself, "Why do I do this?" Haven't had a cig in that time. Haven't had the cravings or the mood changes or anything at all. I wonder why the difference. I also have close to £200 in an old wallet, that would have gone to the local tobacconist.

    It's definitely photobucket. It really has spoiled a lot of long threads on forus. From being a free site, they suddenly asked for quite a large subscription. They had become very slow and difficult to use, so when asking for money, everybody left them. Of course, if you don't subscribe, your pics are gone.

    Photobucket have changed the way that they operate, and many forums now suffer from the loss of pictures hosted there. Damned nuisance!

    Night Ferry

    Thanks Jimbob. The night service would have been well past my bedtime I'm afraid. Interesting stuff. Have you seen this? http://www.eastbank.org.uk/ferry.htm

    I can remember the Golden Arrow during the day when I was a kid. Spam can loco and Pullman carriages. I can remember the French wagons lit in the carriage sidings at Victoria during my commuting days. They don't seem much different to our Pullmans apart from the livery.
