Well June has absolutely zipped over.

Done a decent mileage in the MIcra today, and also at the start of the month over in the Lakes so ICE may have overtaken electric this month. The stats will reveal all when mileometers are photographed.

Random picture finding required for 42,506 (Leaf) and 69,927 (Micra)
Random picture finding required for 42,506 (Leaf) and 69,927 (Micra)

So miles for the detached hybrid for June 2021 were
Electric 42,506 less 41,603 equals 903 for June
ICE 69,927 less 69,293 equals 634 for June

Anyone know anything about Fenchurch Street :?: Unjustifiably famous through the great property trading board game :?:

Here's 42506, appropriate to end of June mile-o-meter reading on the Leaf, at the aforementioned Station in 1960, from Flickr, link to the page here

For the Micra end of month random mileometer number of 69927 I am going for the Chemical Entities of Biological Interest classfication (ChEBI-69927) which is Heptaphylline ( C18H17NO2 )

I think a debut on the FCF for a 3D representation of the atomic structure

When we used to holiday in a caravan in Shoeburyness, Fenchurch Street was the London terminus of the trains direct to Shoeburyness. However the service was so infrequent that we used to travel from Watford Junction to Broad Street, where they had an encased model of an express steam loco which took a penny to make it run, (I always made Dad let me have a go!! :-D ), then walk through the archway into Liverpool Street concourse. Then it was a direct train to Southend Victoria and a bus to Shoeburyness alighting at "The Cambridge" which was next to the entrance of the caravan site where my Aunt's caravan was sited. So I missed out on using Fenchurch Street but I can confirm they ran 3 rail electric trains out to Essex from there!! :-D

256.7! I probably did half that.
Walking - hardly any.
It's going to Scotland on Sunday so a jumpstart for next month.

Something similar?
German coin-operated train layout. They have quite a few of them still.

No not really Neil, I've been totally unsuccessful in tracking it down but this is the nearest I found which is on display at Union Station Kansas City!! If you can imagine a similar case with an A3 Pacific or a Black 5 in it (Not sure which but definitely a 4-6-2 or 4-6-0) with a coin slot at the front and, on entering a penny, the wheels and associated connecting rods chugged round for a few minutes!! I loved it!! :-D
