Of engines, cabs and radiators.


9th December 2018


It's that moment come around again where I sit at the keyboard and wonder what to write.

Of pipes, brackets and buffers

7th October 2018

I thought I'd start with a bit of RS8 that will be, forever, Bristol.

Of auctions and such

30th September 2018

(Sigh). So is the summer over? It's my birthday in less than 2 weeks and that marks for me the descent into winter. Yesterday I had to scrape the windscreen before setting off. Yes, I think I must be feeling depressed.

Of multiple Andrews

9th September 2018

Welcome back. As I drove up to Tunstead on Monday morning I began remembering various things that I had meant to bring and forgotten, plus hoping that things I hadn't found in the workshop were in fact hiding somewhere in the van.

Of wheels wanderers and scribble

Gosh it's hot. Anyone would think it's summer., Oh, it is. Well that sneaked up behind me without me noticing.

Of a Father's Day trip out

17th June 2018

Father's Day, huh? So my son and I go to North Wales - just. A day out, all expenses paid? Nah!

Of steps

22nd April 2018

Not been firing on all cylinders this week. Steph went to see the Doctor, got the usual 'take paracetamol and plenty of fluids' which didn't encourage me to seek the same advice.

Of HAPpiness and the ornamental pond

8th April 2018

You may notice that Weekend Rails has a slightly different appearance this week. The template has been updated and now should re-size itself automatically which should be of assistance if you are one of these who takes all your internet on your smartphone. The 'cloud tags' have been consigned to history but if you click on a tag below the entry you'll get a list of all the posts with that tag. Good eh? Now let's get back to normal business.

Of being cut down to size

4th March 2018

OK, I admit there's been a bit of snow this week. Three or four inches judging by the layers on cars and locos and such.
