Pointy Patrick

Thursday morning at the colliery greets the little people with golden rays as the sun creeps over the horizon. This almost certainly means that it will rain shortly, for of course this is Little England, and anyway, if the sun continues to shine we’ll have nothing to moan about. Moaning being only second to fishing and eating cheap supermarket pizza whilst watching Love Island on TV as Little England’s favourite pastimes. 

Pointy Patrick likes to point at things, in fact he’s always pointing at things, rather like Waving Wayne who’s always waving. Today he’s pointing out Nasal Nigel and his chum Adenoidal Andrew who are just out of shot to the right in the bushes behind the signalbox. Patrick’s keen eyes noting that Nigel and Andrew are comparing OO gauge Triang Hornby English Electric Type 3, aka Class 37 locomotives that they’ve just extracted from their sweaty special pockets. This is quite a departure for them, for we all know that their real passion is the TT gauge ‘Flying Scotsman’ A3 Pacific class locomotive.

I know that many of you are very keen on the Class 37, and will want to know more, well I can tell you that Nigel’s loco is green with small panel yellow panels, and that Andrew’s is in that new fangled ‘BR Blue’ colour with full yellow ends. But sadly I can’t tell you the numbers, something that I know will almost certainly upset any miniature ‘spotters here. For you, I can only apologise. 

And finally, what’s Beryl’s Austin 7 doing dumped under the tree to the left? I’m pretty sure Barry Bullhead from The Ministry of Misery is involved.
