    Hello, I'm not 100% sure what you would like explaining?
    Quorn Wagon and Wagon is the name of our group. Most Railways have a Carriage and Wagon for the GCR thats based at Rothley we only do Wagons and NPCCS but Quorn Wagon and Non Passeger Carrying Coaching Stock doesn't have the same ring to it

    The magnetic sign is complete, but I can see why you are saying something appears to be missing from it, there is a lot of white space around the border.

    Hadn't realised that the restoration of the Tar tank owned by Mountsorrel Heritage Centre had got that far, so pleased to see it mentioned in your latest report - and that's without the track laid into their purpose built restoration workshop!
