I've already kitted out the cellar for that. :)
Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

That is a thing of beauty, Witness but way, way beyond my means.

These were around when I was a member of the school model railway society and we fitted some. :)

This NBL bears a striking resemblence to my sister; I had to look twice.

(And no, I'm not going to post a pic. The thought of sparks perving over my sister is too much to bear.)

Can't happen ed. The fudge-packing mintiness goes on for ever.

Not that there is anything... wrong... with that.

I shall run it.

Wearing rubber gloves and a breathing mask.

Just like you and Abdul do on your secret "weekends away".

Arrived today and never run since it was first purchased, the Hinton Manor has a few white spots behind the chimney stack from the polystyrene packaging. Easily fixed and with a lovely story behind it :)

He’s one of the best-selling artists of all time, but it turns out that Rod Stewart has something more than just a passion for music, recently showcasing a massive model train city he’s spent 23 years building
What’s the first thing you think of when someone says the name Rod Stewart? Personally, I think of my mother’s collection of his records, with that raspy voice belting out ‘Maggie May’ or ‘Sailing’ with every spin.

However, if there’s one thing that his fans rarely associate with the music icon, it’s a love of model trains.

Yes, as the BBC reports, Rod Stewart recently took part in an interview with Railway Modeller magazine to show off a massive railway city inspired by ’40s-era New York and Chicago that he’s been working on for more than 23 years.

With bridges, buildings, houses, tracks, and more detail than an English teacher could ever request, it’s one of the most impressive things that Stewart has ever put his name to.

“I would say 90% of it I built myself,” the singer explained in an interview with BBC Radio 2. “The only thing I wasn’t very good at and still am not is the electricals, so I had someone else do that.”
