I thought your TCL was a yellow one Mike ?
Or have you got one of each ?
I did Paul.it was one of my earliest purchases, and it had done a few passes.. got offered a brand new one, at second hand prices, *someone bought it, took it home swmbo said NO*..and as it was now second hand...I retired my yellow one ..

That's quite impressive - I'm waiting for Duffy Towers to arise at one end of the railway :emo::emo:

I've not looked at your thread for a while, Mike. As always, plenty of good fine detail. Much impressed!

Great set of photos, Mike. I especially like the last one with the shaft of sunlight. The coaches remind me of the metre guage train which featured in last night's World Most Scenic Railways set in Northern Spain.

That pickup holding, if I'm correct, 20 barrels... Not roped down or anything. I imagine it is based on some old B&W photo?

Going off piste, but carrying on the above, in the late 1970's I had to deal with a fatal road accident involving a large 6-wheel flatbed lorry, owned by a nationally renowned company, carrying pallets of concrete building blocks. The only means of securing the blocks were three ropes passed over the top of them secured fore and aft, there was no means of preventing sideways movement other than gravity. Each block weighed 28lbs. At a narrowing of the road the rear nearside wheels clipped the kerb and the sideways jolt shot a pallet and a half of blocks straight through the windscreen of a Minivan travelling in the opposite direction. The driver would have died before he had time to register that his windscreen was breaking. As well as the lorry driver, I had to report the transport manager for using a vehicle with an insecure load, the only offence disclosed under the Road Traffic Act. Following this all loads of bricks or building blocks had to be either netted or carried in cages to prevent similar accidents. Even today when I see a lorry load of concrete blocks I cannot help but think back to that day.
