The 5th most popular post this year

I have really enjoyed looking at which posts are the most popular for this year.

I do wish I’d started at 5, and counted down though. That would have been much more fun.

Number 5, by the way, is one that I particularly like. And you do too, judging by all the comments. Some of you will have seen it before, but for those who haven’t, it really does say a lot about this hobby.

But before I spill the beans, please allow a small, shameless plug.

My Boy Wonder has been busy again. Have a look at the engine sheds he has produced. Amazing to think you just download them, print them, stick them to card, and stick them together.



You can see a bit more about them here. I thought as they are brand spanking new, I’d put them out a silly price before I get them on to the site.

But now back to that all important, 5th most popular blog.

It’s here.

I did ponder whether to post this, because it’s also linked to in the ‘most popular’ section of the site, which squews the figures a little. But seeing as it’s one of my faves, I thought I would.

That’s all this time folks.

Please do keep ’em coming.
