- I was browsing the Ajin Precision homepage (http://www.ajinpre.com,
the manufacturers of the AZL locos) and found these little gems:
Are these upcoming models from our friends at American Z Lines (please
please please say yes)? Can anybody enlighten me as to what the road
name is on the 4-6-2 - I can't read the writing and B&M doesn't ring
any bells for me.
Hope I didn't spoil any upcoming surprises or announcements!
- Abbey National (which in the UK is a bank and a building Society) want £25
to do an IBAN tranasfer. I agree the old euro cheques (checks) were great. I
also agree sometimes it is easier to go to the post office or travel agents
(no commission charges at post offices in the UK) and get the euros in cash.
The only problem is all our local post office have been closed and it is a
pain to go into town .... Tunbridge Wells is the Capital of cable laying, road
works and gridlocks... as my bumper sticker says. Personally I cannot see
the UK joining the euro zone the way things have gone recently with the votes
of the French and Dutch people. I used to manage very well when each country
had it's own currency, all said and done I have always had to buy US$ for my
visits if I do not want to use my credit cards all the time. Lastly often
you get a better deal if it is good old hard currency.
