A link can be obtained, however,
via the Church YouTube channel

Thank You Margaret (Part 1)
She hasn't missed a meeting since!
Each periodical cost 25p.(approx £4 in today's money) thus the 24 sections would create a book that cost £96!
fbb guesses that the book dates from about 1972, getting on for 50 years ago and it makes fascinating reading as today's enthusiast watches how its editors saw and communicated the variety of railway history world wide.
It comes with a wall poster illustrating some of the trains holding speed records.
The part work is international, so we can enjoy German steam ...
There is much more steam world-wide in this elderly part work. It may be old, but it is fascinating.
In tomorrows blog, we see the advance of new technology; firstly in the trains themselves.
Obvious But Not Obvious
Blast From The Past
A New Livery?
So measurements were sent via the dreaded interwebnet and Mrs fbb guessed a suitably balletic corporate colour. What she knat was received with great excitement and the full livery is illustrated above.
As well as looking after her devoted hubby (something of a gargantuan task) and providing scrumptious nosh, Mrs fbb knits for others and for charity. She is far better at it than fbb is at railway modelling.
There are resources enough to feed and clothe everyone in the world. Sadly it is unfairly distributed.
Raconteur Reveals Riddle of Wrenn (3)
fbb owned the Hornby Dublo horse box, LMS brake van and white fish van - all of which appear in the above advert in their Wren forms.
An SD6 (super detailed) tank wagon never appeared!
So, imagine fbb's surprise when he opened the box containing his Wrenn wagon. Actually, it wasn't a complete surprise because he could fins no pictures of a traditional Hornbt tank wagon bearing the Wrenn label.
Second hand versions, as we have already seen can be VERY expensive.
Thankfully, fbb had to pay only (ONLY!) £20 for his, not around £40.
But if it wasn't Hornby Dublo, where did it come from?
