I got more Woodland Scenic trees,
Oh dear, this seems a bit decadent in comparison.
I got two Bachmann Flying Pigs, one early and one late crest. I think there must have been some co-operation between my wife and father. What marvellous models. I am finding it difficult to put them back in their boxes.

A brand new bench mounted combined belt and disk sander ... to be used mainly for building buildings!
Oh and a shed load of book tokens.
Put the locos on the layout, sell the boxes on eBay Keith
I also got socks, pants and one of those things with a raffia work base :-)
A Hornby Class 110. Luvvverly :-)
More bottles of whisky (both malt & blended) than I can consume before the end of January! :-)
Must ry harder John!!
Class 60, very nice, another 4 please¬
With all that whisky to consume, order 2 and you might well get 4, but there again you might only receive one!....
Come on John, do your best, were all counting on you!!!!!!!!!!! Rob

It looks like one of my new 57XXs has been at your whisky, John! When coming round the S-bend pulling a ten-coach train at top speed, it derailed, unhooked from its train and flew off the layout in a downward parabola, and tried to tunnel into the earth. Maybe it was chasing the squirrel that was running down the trackbed earlier in the day.
The only thing that broke on the loco was the front NEM pocket (part No.150-146) which is made of that soft acetal plastic and is supposed to be unbreakable. Everything else (including the coupling itself) is OK. Unfortunately, I can't report this to Bachmann at the moment as they are on holiday until 3 January and they have disabled the "Contact us" part of their website.
My wife is ALWAYS sober Jerry, that there's little risk of that! ;-)

You don't need to report it to Bachmann - I'll get a couple of them in the post to you on Wednesday when we and the Post Office return to 'action' after the Christmas break. In future though will you keep your Panniers away from my whisky though? ;-)
Four of the new Hornby LMS coaches. Considering that I have a large collection of Staniers built from my own '5522' etched kits they compare pretty well with them, though I won't be running them in the same trains. The roof ventilators are a bit small, the corridor connections are far too short (to suit little Johnny I guess) and the bogies have developed some tie bars which do not exist in the prototype (TSLJ). Frankly though giving these models to LJ would be folly indeed. I have never seen so much fine (and breakable ) detail on any RTR coach ever. If this is where RTR is going then kits for these protypes are utterly pointless (and probably un-saleable). The bogies are fascinating. Tiny details like the tie bars being different for the two types (welded and rivetted) are correct and the5ft springs on the later bogies are also present. Amazing!

What? No 2-10-2s (with sound)?, 12-packs of hoppers/boxcars/whatever?
People in your neck of the woods are so unoriginal when it comes to giving presents :-)
Similar here, socks, vests, brandy, bugger-all railway related :-(
Lucky you. The store which sells my socks, boxer shorts and (imported Dutch) beer is being bulldozed to make way for Ikea. I shall have to spend the New Year both naked and sober.
A Toddler subscription from my Mum. Except I didn't *know* it was from her because the Jan issue turned up on Thursday, with no covering letter and nothing to indicate that it was a sub. copy! Only by some intense questioning, did the truth emerge!
