I hate model railways


Cat with badges

A stuffed cat with a fine selection of badges spotted at a recent photoshoot. The thing is, I suspect I know where these came from. The L&WMRS has a badge machine, and in the 1990s, we made a lot of badges. Mostly for shows, but a few fun ones that we sold. 

"I hate model railways" was the second-best seller in the range, the most popular being "I love playing trains".  Quite often, they were sold as a pair, one for him, one for her!

The weird thing is, there's a chance that I made this very badge many years ago. Many hours were spent down the club restocking ahead of a show...
