New model railway

Everyone should have a favourite Wikipedia redirect, and this is mine:

This article is about the Lord Protector of England from 1653 - 1658. For the British Rail Standard Class 7 locomotive, see BR standard class 7 70013 Oliver Cromwell.

Evidently for the benefit of blinkered trainspotters who forget that trains are actually named after people/places/etc!!

Mine is :
This article is about the Common Footman Moth which rests with its wings wrapped around its body. If you require the Less Common Footman, gonzo nerd scourge of Ann Robinson, you have a much broader outlook on life.

Cor blimey, David. I mean Tim. Your own wikipedia entry. That is posh. And Mastermind not your only televisual claim to fame, I see.

Cromwell! That's a fightin' word in the old homestead.

Do trainspotters wear blinkers, Llewtrah? Wouldn't they clash with their anoraks?

Murph: The larva is grey and hairy, apparently.

Ah, Pleite, have I not told you about the time I shared a packet of crisps with Ian Hislop, Pam Ferris and the tallest man in England?

Yes, Mrs Peel, it was used especially to wake up our Hibernian readers.
