Are you sure you've got that the right way round? Selective deafness was always for the oldies where I'm from.

Same here. I'm from banjo country originally mind you, so not sure that counts!

I'm sure it's a parent thing, my kids (not really kids any longer being 14,24,29) always accuse me of being selectively deaf when required!

Though you might like to see my latest addition to my model railway collection. This class of DMU ( 101 ) brings back childhood memories as I remeber many happy days travelling from Central to Barrhead on them. Back in the days when you could dangerously stick your head out of the door windows before H&S spoiled all our fun. I purchased this 2 car set at model rail Scotland back in Feb for the amazing price of £32. Hope you like.

My wee locos are safely in their bubble wrap. I'd never let them out to play like this:

Hi all - finally got round to finishing this building, for those unfamiliar with the prototype, it is based on the North British Railway office building that dominated the Southern end of the old Eastfield (65A) shed in Glasgow.

Is there anyway you can place one of those pinhole cameras on a loco?
