Re: What gives you the S&#T's!?

SD Card corrupts again as I copy files from it, Sandisk microSD cards are the biggest pieces of fragile junk I've ever used and what is worse is I was able to recover the video files and they still contain data but as far as anything is concerned, the files are "corrupted" and can't be viewed.

Re: What gives you the S&#T's!?

We were just talking about that incident on another site, we've sadly reached a point where society wants others to suffer rather than abide by some simple rules that can not only keep yourself out of danger but others as well. Asking people to do one simple thing for safety is too much nowdays. Thi...

Re: NSW Fleet List issues?

Not to hijack the thread but I think I should let the admins know that when you go and try to view any fleet changes made just to a single operator it now just redirects you back to the section for NSW fleet-list. for example I clicked on the fleet-list for Around Town Tours and then while there cli...

Stupid Chinese autodialers still calling my number, I'd already blocked one and I was mere seconds away from blocking the other that just called me but I thought I'd give it a call from a disposable service and I reached a live human, turns out the autodialer is spoofing it's number where ever it is...

My Toy & Model buses collection

Over my lifetime I have managed to pick up a couple of bus toys here and there whether that'll be for display purposes or just toys I've had since my childhood, I've managed to pull out 3 that were in easy reach of me and take some photos of them, try and have a guess at what some of these are based...
