  1. We've had this discussion with parked vehicles blocking the access to the backway to terraced housing; the police are much more interested in enforcing if you can't get out than if you can't get in.

  3. May not be as effective with Covid restrictions but contact your local (inland) scuba diving club. We've sunk quite a few boats in the Blue Lagoon (see most right hand image of https://www.mksac.co.uk/blue-lagoon-diving for an example - I think there are three or four GRP, two or three wooden boats, two car chassis and a single seat Cessna at the last count!) Just makes an otherwise boring lake a bit more interesting when it's too rough to go to the seaside.
  4. Where's the groan button when you need one...
  5. This is the sort of thing which in the UK would result in "hang, on, we need a risk assessment" (I'm intrigued at the size range - not only is the "vessel" half the size of the shipping container but he's absolutely dwarfed by the boats on the left. And the ferry up top (assuming a ferry from the bow ramp?)
  6. My recollection is that switches bounce open as well as bounce closed? (based upon debounce in 45 series CMOS logic a very long time ago!)
  7. I can see the Daily Wail now... "Another widebeam on unsuitable waterways"
  8. While I don't disagree with the general feeling of all the contributors so far, HS2 has got to be the most mis-named project of all time. It's not the speed that's important, it's the capacity. But "Bigger Trains 2", "More Wagons 2" or "Lots more Passengers 2" doesn't have quite the PR angle... Having stood many times for the entire London to Manchester 120 minutes I'm after a seat, not speed! Of course I won't need either for the foreseeable future...

  12. Many years ago my father and I took his model railway (six baseboards) to an exhibition - as we were packing up we heard a worker on the adjacent layout exclaim "I like Stuarts colour code, pink for 12 volt!"
