Ok.... it seems I have some way to go then. I do have a trailer all I need is a https://www.schleich-s.com/en/US/farm-world/products/clydesdale-gelding-13808.html horse . I have seen the HO/OO ones with the hooves resting on clear plastic but Im more inclined to hollow out the hooves and put 3mmOD ball bearings in them and the let the motorised trailer push the horse while moving the legs with fine wires.

Ah - you mean the horse apples!

The powers that be are seeking planning permission to rebuild the Strathallan Tram Depot which will look similar to what it did in 1902 if all goes well.

So, is it also 'grapes', 'apples', or 'tomatoes', depending on what colour it is painted?

Or is this just a 'language' thing??
It is different flavours of ice cream and also apples, peaches and tomatoes, all depending on colour.

Hamburgers also double as cowpats.
