Of wheels wanderers and scribble

Gosh it's hot. Anyone would think it's summer., Oh, it is. Well that sneaked up behind me without me noticing. .

Of spherilastik magic

20th May 2018

I know, I shouldn't moan about the sun after all the rain and snow we've had, but I got this dashcam for Christmas and the self-adhesive pad  that is supposed to hold it to the windscreen goes soft after an hour or so parked in direct sunshine and I come back to find the camera ready to take close-ups of the passenger side floor. I'm getting tired of trying to get it to stick again and prodding the cable back into the trim around the screen. Another fall or two and it's out with the epoxy.

Of steps

22nd April 2018

Not been firing on all cylinders this week. Steph went to see the Doctor, got the usual 'take paracetamol and plenty of fluids' which didn't encourage me to seek the same advice.

Of HAPpiness and the ornamental pond

8th April 2018

You may notice that Weekend Rails has a slightly different appearance this week. The template has been updated and now should re-size itself automatically which should be of assistance if you are one of these who takes all your internet on your smartphone. The 'cloud tags' have been consigned to history but if you click on a tag below the entry you'll get a list of all the posts with that tag. Good eh? Now let's get back to normal business.

Of snow and souvenirs

11th February 2018

OK, first off, those of you who are looking for lots of pickies this week are going to be disappointed – for whatever reason the camera has had a quiet week.

Of bogies, tunnel and dashcam

4th February 2018

A bit for everyone this week, I think. Whether its s.g., n.g., steam or diesel, we've something that might catch your attention, educate or amuse.

Of rock salt and hydraulic oil

28th January 2018

Some weeks in this saga mark significant milestones. Others just little stepping stones. This week's is much in tune with the former, as Andrew became equipped to transport a proportion of his fleet (not the heavier ones, yet) on his own low-load trailer.
