Worth keeping in reserve, but sadly no binary groups and I use alt.binaries.pictures.rail an awful lot.

My thanks also. Works just as well with Netscape, if you hate OE for some reason.

You don't need a reason to hate OE.

I've used OE and IE since Windoz 95.
And I'm perfectly happy with both. They work.

Me too, although I've only used them since W98SE, and without any problems too despite dire warnings to the contrary. Having said that I do update Windows regularly, run a quality firewall and AV software, which gets updated on a daily basis.

Well my friendly model shop is open to negotiation on prices and usually works out a little more than mail order and postage. So I try to use them for big purchases as well and get the specialist things that he does not stock at model railway exhibitions or on line.

Yes, that is the real benefit of the net and online 'shops', being able to source stuff that no local shop would ever find economic to stock or products that can only be obtained from another country.

So much for the "free market" concept of choice. Actually, it's an oligarchy.

John, TMC- Is this the Trafford Model Centre ? or The Model Centre ? (Or are both the one and same?)

TMC [1] went into administration in March and have supposedly been bought out by Modelzone, whilst it is being suggested elsewhere that TWO of the large mail order retailers may be in trouble.
[1} after allegedly having been refinanced twice since they were launched not so many years ago.

I believe they are both the same.
Heard today that Modelzone have only agreed to take them on board for a probationary six month period during which time the viability of TMC will be assessed and a decision made to decide which if any of the TMC stores will remain open.

I can't believe TMC are in trouble because of low prices. Their shop in Nottingham is VERY expensive (even more-so than GeeDee Models, who are quite pricey).

I suspect they were in toruble because of extremely high overheads and a top heavy management structure.
