I just happened to be looking at Marcel's website and it appears that he is producing a new book and it should be available in the autumn

   http://www.feldbahn-modellbau.ch

  I would imagine it will only be available in German , but that shouldn't be a problem for all of you multi-lingual Americans , it is us Brits who will struggle as we still think that everyone else should speak English !

   I will try and obtain a copy at some point because if I am only able to look at the pretty pictures that would be worth the purchase price alone .

  And before you ask , no. I haven't been away . I look in here everyday . No I am not doing any modelling at the moment as it is summer and I am working on the house . And no it won't be finished by Christmas ! And no I am not planning on a return trip to the States at the moment (much rejoicing had by everyone) , because the British Government has advised its citizens that the USA is a dangerous place to visit , with widespread civil unrest and lawlessness and a despotic president who is trying to take over the World . And anyway , I'm heading back Down Under next year and the finance director wouldn't possibly countenance two long distance trips in a year .

Hey Nick.  I emailed you a month ago!  No I didn't get answer back!
Remember the pictures of the house you were going to send???

That NO sounds like if you asked Russ something that's what he would say!!  Smiley

Yeah, Jerry, except that I answered your e-mail from a couple of days ago promptly and in entertaining detail. You may now take Nick's place in the corner and stand there all weekend. -- Russ

OK, where's the link to the order blank?

Nick: The entire US isn't a lawless mess, just those parts where Cracker Barrel Restaurants are considered high end eating. Come back soon there are places where you can get good fish & chips and decent ales.  Can't help with mushy peas or eel pie though.

   I don't bloody know , just because me Mum's German doesn't mean I can speak the language ! I don't suppose it is available yet .

  You can't supply mushy peas or eel pie ? Thank Allah for that , I don't intend flying half way around the World to eat food I don't eat at home ! I would want to sample some of the local indigenous foods such as KFC or Dunkin Doughnuts !

 I shall get onto Marcel forthwith and demand that he provides an English version . He might even be persuaded to produce it in an English version that Americans can understand !

 Hi Gordon ,

  How is life in the Outer Hebrides ?

   That was a pretty horrid incident that happened on your Island a few weeks ago , I guess it has affected quite a few people in your area .

even a supplemental insert would be helpful so "we" could get a general idea what we're looking at!


$47.00 plus a bunch for shipping is a tough justification for something I cannot read. the website I can have google translate for free.

Here you can order the book:

for the order process

Fortunately, the pictures will not signify any language barriers. But I can understand you, I have the other way around the problem with the English, maybe Russ may produce a US version.

Nick:
When you next come across the pond, drop by.  There are places near to me that put KFC to shame.  In the kitchen of one of them the staff is my Grandmother's cook re-incarnated.  Southern cooking worth the trip.

The English translation of the website is good, but I think I'll wait until one of you who buys it gets bored and sells it on an auction site.
