Probably me I'm afraid, sorry! It's been sunny and 17įC for most of the day.

On the various train sim posts, it's been a while since I've done any of that. It was Trainz Simulator 2 I had. One of the last times I played it, I took a class 37 up to 136mph! I don't doubt that the real thing can exceed the '80mph max' printed in the cab, but my how much I wonder? The other game I had was an old 'build your own railway' type game, 'old' meaning it came on a DVD and ran best with Windows XP. I still have it on my 13-year-old laptop and go back to it every now and again. The only thing with these games for me is that I find them fun for a little while, but as with books about trains I would much rather go out and experience it myself (although that's of course quite hard to do with a long-gone steam yard!).

Hope you've all been enjoying your weekend

I don't think we could have wished for better weather here in Aberdeenshire, it is five days on the trot with clear Skyeís and really hot sun, checked out our home town Nottingham and it is chucking it down with rain and blower.

it's been dry so far today but did rain overnight.

It's been windy and grey all day though. Glad I'm not on the boat

Evening all, Right miserable dull rainy day it's been here. More driving steam trains on the TSW2 Spirit of steam game, I haven't touched any of the other diesel/electric ones since this steam loco game came out, Already put in a suggestion for a BR standard class 4T tank engine for the next loco top join the ranks


Lasagne & peas/sweetcorn for tea


Speaking of locos have you seen the e-coal they've come up with as a replacement for coal A molasses based briquette & a rape seed yellow coal

Not a lot, the windings on the traction motors would disintegrate. The class 47s had a max speed of 95 mph but the 47/7s on the Edinburgh-Glasgow push pull services could run at 100mph. Only modification done was a yellow sticker on the driver's desk saying they could run at 100mph in push pull formation. They were worked so hard the brake blocks had to be replaced at every "A" exam, 55 hours in traffic.
