NCB loco awaits turn in paint shop.
Further to my posting on Easter Monday, I managed to finish the assembly of the Knightwing diesel shunter kit last night. It seemed the best way of easing the stress of listening to Liverpool's eventful match last night. If things carry on with LFC's goalie crisis, then maybe King Kenny will come knocking on my door for the cup semi final against Everton this weekend. Not for me, you understand (I've retired), but for Pepsie Grobbelaar the amazing goalkeeping Collie dog.
I used to be pretty handy between the sticks in my youth, but Pepper is by far the most amazing footballing dog I've ever come across. Her positional sense may let her down a bit and Kenny would have a job getting her to stay in the box, but she certainly never gives up. What's more, she'd show those Blue Noses a thing or two about close control and aerial dominance. As long as Fellaini and Cahill don't resort to their usual dirty tricks (ie. Schmacko doggy treats) to distract her attention at corners or set plays, the Mighty Reds could have a new goalie hero to rank alongside Lawrence, Clemence, Grobbelaar, Dudek and Reina...

|Also completed last night was another NCB wagon for Maudetown. A combo of Dapol body and Parkside kit-built chassis, the original P.J.& J.P. markings are still visible through the grime.|
