"For the model railway enthusiast, the pleasure is in the making,

*cleaning* and admiring of replica locomotives."

Someone needs to read the thread about weathering ;-)

club's fix it man and regularly expected small payments for some repairs.

I'm interested in who he considers the six ahead of him and, more interesting, who comes after him. :-)

I wondered about this also!

Who keeps this league table and how can I get on it? :-)

This chap sounds like a right fantasist!

This story has been discussed over on uk.railway, where the owner of said model has posted saying that the model in question hasn't been returned by the police yet, and the photographer wanted him to pose with a model, so he used a Peak instead.

Interestingly, the "Daily Telegraph" reported this, complete with a photo of a Bachmann "Peak" - unfortunately the text of the article said it was a DCC Lima Class 40 ..........
