Cool is an overused term these days.
I don't care, this is very cool. :D

Hi Chris,

I thought it might be a happier fit here as Prototype Prattles is ideally for minimum gauge stuff(although I'll freely admit to not perhaps keeping on top of it).

Cheers,

MY APOLOGIES!
I did this late last night and inadvertently slid in to this column.
It's a combination of age, eyesight and a few other things.........
thanks for understanding

I think we might be misunderstanding each other.

I moved the whole original thread here, as per my post earlier. When I 'checked in' on the Gnatterbox lateish last night, I found you had repeated your original post back in Prototype Prattles, so I deleted that, but couldn't think of a suitable comment to make at the time so I tottered off to bed.

Sorry for any confusion.

Cheers,

thing that really interests me is fact that it is in colour. colour fim at the time would have been in short supply, and only used for very special occasions.
Was trying to work out where some of it could have been filmed. The short sections at an ironworks, suggests some of the film show iron ore quarries, and some of the tipper wagons look like those used on the quarry lines near to Banbury.
