I still have my 'original' set (in its blue tin container).  A favourite variant of the game used to be 'Test Players v Famous People from History'!  Smiley

Firstly I need to get back to Wilf's original correct spelling Owzthat.. a set in decent condition in its blue box with rules goes for 40 on e-bay. Not that you'd wish to sell such a lovely thing.

Have to say, having seen / been pulled by the Scotsman recently, it was somewhat underwhelming. Shitty squeaky little whistle and pretty quiet. Nothing like a good old Western Manor or Hall working hard.

Reg, the realtimetrains website is great, so if a train is delayed you'll be able to see it's so, and stay in the pub for another 15 minutes or whatever. No more waiting around sitting on a trolley for ages, playing Owzthat with yer mates.
Just an update its now Royal Scot tomorrow so at least a Swindon connection there.....

A sexy beast to be sure, if you notice when it goes to Oxford next year, then it might be worth making the effort to get over and see it.
