Re: When Music Was Music. Frank Skerret Show

Didn't Frank make a habit of making sarky comments about Sidney Devine, before playing some of his tracks?

Re: Model Railways and other Wee Worlds

Thanks everyone, one thing that this build taught me is that there is absolutely no such thing as a standard Glasgow Tenement, there are so many subtle variations of stonework styles etc etc. They deserve a study all of their own.

Re: Remains of Monkland Canal

Would anyone want it? It was filled in because it was a rat infested death trap that everyone was glad to see the back of. Can't see any local support for any reopening
