Nope, I'm the financial spender, the financial advisor (not of the matrimonial variety who luckily I don't possess) is the one who keeps on telling me that if I carry on spending at the rate I am I'll have nothing left in my kitty by my 90th birthday......I thought you were the financial advisor
Seems reasonable to me - what they forget to advise you is that as you get older you spend less. The MIL at 93 doesn't know what to do with it allNope, I'm the financial spender, the financial advisor (not of the matrimonial variety who luckily I don't possess) is the one who keeps on telling me that if I carry on spending at the rate I am I'll have nothing left in my kitty by my 90th birthday......
Oh the Bendy 12 wheeler, I had a Bemo one of these superb little loco. I gather that now you can fit DCC Sound to the Bemo ones. Sorry that I sold it all now! Though all of the Lecies were a pig to get into, but I imagine the newer ones will be made to fit DCC Decoders these days.
Just when I thought it was safe to declare the collection complete, having resisted several recent releases... the Ge 6/6 has to be on the 'must have' list. There will even be a space for the box in the garage, following a long term lease out agreement for one lesser used Ge 4/4 II....
Yeah, the Kiss version didn't - it was a rigid body with the outer bogies describing massive, ridiculous arcslooking at the pictures, I guess the body will pivot on the central bogie. Almost like two separate locos. Bet it has not got three motors - that would be fun.
In fact already announced at the end of 2006 in the New Items 2007 as a novelty for 2008: LGB 20480 RhB Electric Loco Ge 6 / 6II by the then new owner of LGB, Hermann Schöntag, E.P. LEHMANN GmbH & Co.KG, resident in the old factory at the Saganer Str. 1-5 in Nürnberg. However Herr Schöntag was unable to gain the necessary money and LGB was bankrupt again!
