Wrong rail track, wrong radio…. but for something centuries further out-of-era, keep an eye out for modern stainless stirrups

I personally love scenes with wonderful old Cossor and Solartron scopes being used to control time machines, spaceships and general spatial discombobulators.

HP used to have a sales office not far from the studios in Hollywood. Occasionally big names would come over for a look around the bits of machinery on offer, but when the official orders came in, they said things like "Four of the ones with the green wiggly lines"

Can't afford the volcanic island yet, but the plans for my monorail and the goons' uniforms are done
