Corgi BR 4-6-0 Castle Class 'Nunney Castle' 5029, circa 2013 Manufacturers Description: - Scale: 1:120, Length: 165mm - Diecast Model: Metal and Plastic Construction - Complete with display case. Designed by Charles Collett, the Chief Mechanical Engineer of the Great Western Railway, 'Nunney Castle' No. 5029 was built at the Swindon Works in 1934. The Castle Class was also known as the GWR 4073 Class, designed for hauling express passenger trains. Based on the earlier Star Class locomotive, 171 of the class were built over a 27 year period. Locomotive No. 5029 was named after a late 14th century castle in a small village near Frome, Somerset. Originally based at Old Oak Common in West London, 'Nunney Castle' famously hauled the Royal Train from Paddington to Gloucester in October 1957, and was included with other locomotives that were used for 'life of the railway' photographs eventually being withdrawn from service in December 1963. A year later it was sold for scrap to Woodham Bros. of Barry where it sat for 12 years. It was not until 1976 that 'Nunney Castle' was rescued for preservation, returning to mainline service in 1990 and currently residing at Tyseley Locomotive Works carrying an early BR emblem. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS ITEM IS NOT INTENDED TO BE A TOY, THIS ITEM IS FOR COLLECTORS. MINIMUM AGE RECOMMENDED 14.

Advantages: Atmosphere. Well produced - Escapist Disadvantages: Story line too unrealistic for me
...Last week I came across one of those special offers in HMV (4 DVds for £20). It was end of the season sale and I picked up a film called "The Village" just to make up the numbers. It struck me as being some sort of clichéd horror film from the blurb on the cover and I didn't expect to be watching it in the very near future. But it was one of those DVDs that keep popping up every time I looked...

Review of The Village (DVD)
Advantages: Unusually, quirky, beautiful beach Disadvantages: Can be crowded
...Located in Gwynedd, North Wales, overlooking the estuary of the River Dwryrd, Portmeirion is an Italianate tourist village. Holiday accommodation is available here or you can visit as day guests, as we did. Portmeirion was designed and built by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis between 1925 and 1975 in order to demonstrate how a naturally beautiful area could be developed without being ruined. It is...
...The Village, written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan on a budget of 60 million dollars, was going to be a tough follow up for a director known for his twists and turns. As it turned out, there was a twist, but it was a rather low key one, and it was almost apparent from the start, though it is not without a small end revelation, that will surprise you.
This movie starts off really slowly...
