Well they take a full size one and get Jem to graffiti it, then they shrink it down using 'Wonkavision' before they package it up and sell it.

:) I love how the term "off-site backups" is used on a forum dedicated to one bloke pursuing a hobby in his shed! :)

Oh, I dunno, Pedro: if there's anything I ever forget about Frost*, I know that I only have to contact you as my off-site backup  ;)

"The Beard is Out There" is the name of a Spock's Beard live album, which surely can't be a coincidence?

I feel a spoof coming on.  Two Prog references on one model train?  Either that or some Proghead in the Hornby product line department putting the word out there!!
I can't keep it in any longer! It was me, I work in product development at Hornby. Following on from this I did a series of made up locos called - 'Morse Collieries', 'Portnoy Collieries', 'Trewavas Aggregates', 'Stolt Industries', 'Gildenlow Salt Co.' and 'Transatlantic industries'.
They all went to production and no one twigged the connection
