One way to deal with Quarantine... is a free online Railroad Discussion Forum and Railroad Photo Gallery for railroaders, railfans, model railroaders and anyone else who is interested in railroads. We cover a wide variety of topics, including freight trains, passenger and commuter railroads, rail news and information, tourist railroads, railway museums and railroad history.

Brits have always been into gardening, so a garden railway for a retired railway worker is the next logical step.

Check out this scenes from The Avengers, my favorite TV show back in the 60's. It is obviously a parody of train fights from American Westerns.
This is the first of eight parts. You can watch the other seven by querying The Avengers-The Grave Diggers-Train Fight.

Each part starts repeating itself after about 30 seconds. When that happens, just go on to the next part.
