    Yes I did - thank you very much :thumb:

    Glad you like my efforts.

    I decided, after the warnings on here to leave Rookwood for another day - I didn't fancy meeting 'farmer Palmer' and his pitch fork!!! :laugh:

    I like your sunset shot - something that I was hoping for, but some idiot decided to shove the clocks forward by an hour!!!! ( I left about 5:30 and I'm glad I did - the roads were bad - too many accidents!)

    Try English or a few well known international gestures, I am sure that they would have got the message.
    Or did you bottle out?, have a nice day:

    This particular plonker actually managed to climb up the bank, but decided he couldn't get down again, I'm surprised the crew of the M7 didn't stop and have a word, so he just sauntered along the four foot, came up to myself and another gent and asked when the next train was due ( how do we know if there is to be an unscheduled movement)!!!!!!!!

    BTW what happened to the M7 not completing its last round passenger trip to bank the freight ot of Alresford?

    You may be surprised to learn that the majority of forum members, and a couple have already complained about this latest round, are not in the slightest bit interested in the petty sniping that seems to break out in this thread every now and again. If you must do it via this forum please confine it to PMs.
    To the best of my knowledge those who have brought the subject up are not MHR members, so have no axe to grind, but like many others on the forum, are totally (fill in you own expletive) off with it.

    I agree Ralph and this should not have happened as a PM would have been sufficient and I over reacted and should not have come down to David,s level.

    Indeed he has my private E-mail address and could have easily used that.

    Please bear in mind that I did not start this, however I suggest that we leave it at that and bury this ? if David has further issues , would he please use my private E-mail address?

    Many thanks

    Enough !

    Further bickering posts will be removed and considered against the forum rules.

    As you both know each other, this is considered a personal dispute with no need for everyone else

    I don't think so, although I believe (from a reliable source) that profits from the Spring gala were there or thereabouts with those from the Autumn gala last year, which of course would have been much more expensive to put on what with hiring in Tornado, DNZ, 70000 and 1744. I certainly found this year's event very pleasant.
