5011RE: [7mm NGA] Gold ore
- Jul 1, 2005Gerry and Frank,
If I remember correctly, Dwyle-Flonking is a rather messy pub ritual that
involves a group of people dancing round in a circle. Somebody in the
middle acts as Flonker, equipped with a long-handled mop and a bucket of
stale beer. I'll leave the rest to your imagination.
It would make a fascinating cameo scene on a layout, if you are looking
for a model railway connection in all this.
