For the first time in @% years I find myself with a little extra time and some disposable income (Quick Moriarty... the disposable Tuba.... oops, sorry wrong newsgroup)
I was thinking about a little foray into the railway modelling hobby with an older prototype (hence my previous posting about 0-4-2 to2-4-0. Looking at a snail-mail delivered "Railway Modeller" I noticed a kit for Lion/Titfield Thunderbolt which: a) needs fettling, b) is minus wheels and c) is UKP 80 ...
A) is it worth it (When I were a lad at F.H. Lloyds, fettling were done with meaty sized pneumatic chisels that blew your eardrums)
B) Uncommon Wheels... difficult to get (And the local Bokspok wheels just dont look right)
C)Is it worth the moolah? (The American Rubbish tm. stuff I can buy off the shelf here is good and 75% of the price... i'm still looking for one small corner of a foreign attic that is forever England)
