Default Another diorama idea?

Hi all,

I was recently in Scotland visiting family in Aberdeen and took a day out by train to Inverness where we passed Insch and saw this:


Unidentified Mk2 f/g TSO (Tourist Second/Standard Open) awaiting conversion to restaurant extension at Carriages Hotel, Insch, Aberdeenshire.

Now there's an idea what to do with that poor-running coach!!!!

Cheers,

Dave

SIR!!!!! As an exiled Scot, let me tell you that when I was there that weekend, there was wall-to-wall sunshine in Aberdeen, whilst it rained non-stop in Suffolk!

I have been to Aberdeen in November with my winter clothes, to find that it was so mild there (warmer than in East Anglia), I didn't need them! Snow is now a rare event in Aberdeenshire, but unlike Greater London, when it comes, the Scots are prepared and life goes on as normal. Whereas in London, Heathrow and Gatwick almost close, the trains get delayed or cancelled and tube trains can't leave their depots - all through a slight dusting which upsets you Southern Softies!!!

Dave
