Thanks. :-)) All three files arrived fine.

FWIW I started writing webpages back in the days when the norm was to use
the simplest and cleanest HTML that did the job. And assume that it is the
task of the browser/viewer to render that as *they* prefer. Hence my pages
use ancient KISS methods despite people routinely telling me about all the
"whizz wheels" I 'must' use to impress.

These days 'model rail' tends to be associated with 'train spotter'. I used
to have a model rail setup when a kid. Long ago stopped having any active
interest in that for myself. But still have an interest in the engineering,
and find steam locomotives impressive and intriguing engineering. 

WRT the models what really impresses me is the sheer accuracy of the
detailing some people can produce. I'm utter rubbish at mechanical. I can
build electronics, but even there if some tilts the box they can hear the
boards, etc, inside shuffle about because I didn't fix them down properly.

Thanks again,
