    Thanks for the links. I wish the Foss site had prices.

    I am visiting my folks in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire and my sister in the Lake District..she just bought a traditional long canal boat and wants to take me on a nice quiet/slow tour around....really looking forward to it.

    Cheers

    Try here aswell

    Enjoy the trip - Cheltenham is a lovely town - very nice, very English but I'm not aware of any particularly good model shops.
    You could try my local town Swindon about 30 miles south - Swindon Model Centre - pretty reasonable shop.

    cheers

    Thanks for the links....it's always nice to see what's available from other places.

    I know Gloucestershire pretty well...lived there for the first 19 years of my life Swindon I seem to remember had a really nice rec centre.

    Cheers
