Even you will be hard put to find an excuse for running a J36 on a Southern Region layout!!!    Laughing

You've missed the point (as usual) which is that if you go to Tesco, et al, you are getting the same petrol as you would get from the Independant garage just down the road     Yell

Hi Jacob

 

In common with many of your other posts your comments re Petrol are total rubbish.

 

A friend of mine has recently retired from BP at Hamble which is just down the road. In this area we have the BP Hamble distribution depot and about a mile further is the Esso Fawley refinery ((about 20 miles by road). The two are connected by pipeline. If either has a shortage then a consignment comes down the pipe. Tesco have a superstore about two miles from Hamble which is where their 4* comes from. So, depending if a consignment has just come from Fawley you could be filling up with either BP or Esso!

 

Go for the lower price or Nectar points!

Cool

If that photo was Black/White you'd still see the difference.

Hi WTD

 

You've covered everything there. Be very unusual to have an entire train with the same colour roofs

Just like the Bulleid Pacifics - what you see is not the boiler. It's a light steel casing. I know it is only light steel because I walked along the top of the casing on 34105 Swanage during her time in Barry

After some very deep and difficult research I can now tell you it is on both sides. Well actually I looked at some photos. Laughing

 

That's the best way to do it!  Thanks, mate - I'll look out for that.
