Yes really! An outfit called Blue Star Line aims to build a full size working reproduction of the doomed liner.
Also on line appeared a telling picture. It shows the "enormous" (maybe even titanic) Titanic set against a modern cruise liner ...
A Market Marketing Initiative
Where better to start your Christmas shopping than at the Chatsworth Christmas market?
With over 100 market stalls offering a wide range of Christmas gifts and decorations, it's a great way to start the festive season. Enjoy a visit later in the day and experience the market at dusk with a magical feel.
You can also explore our own exclusive ranges in the Chatsworth shops – the Orangery shop in the garden and the Stables shop in the Stables courtyard – with a wide range of home and fashion gifts, and lots of lovely stocking fillers.
In comes Midland Classic (of Burton Upon Trent) with a special bus service.
A "courageous" idea, perhaps but the ailing bus industry needs more innovative ideas to encourage leisure ridership.
Meanwhile a "bah humbug" fbb can think of nothing more depressing than spending lots of time time spending lots of money mon "stocking fillers" to promote the commercial festival of XSmas. Modest and meaningful will be the old crusty's gift policy.
He prefers to celebrate the "official" birthday of the life-changing Son of God.
Another Christmas Gift Idea - But Hurry!
There are plenty of railway modellers who, without the stubby shaky digits with which fbb is blessed, like to make models in N gauge. At a scale of 2mm to the foot and a track gauge of 9mm the models are tiny.
BUT you can get a lot into a small space.
Rapido Trains have just completed dispatch of their USA and Canada "Turbo" trains models.
Of course, as with all Rapido stuff, they are exquisite models and come with a motor in the pod-car at both ends, plus incredible detail throughout. How much?
Even at N gauge this is a long, long train and fbb reckons that most UK modellers will not have layouts big enough to do the train justice. But plenty of folk with plenty of disposable income will just buy the models for display.
But a very nice toy indeed!
