What is the correct unit for a RT? Should they be available in liquid, gaseous or solid (chocolate coated) form? Should they carry a health warning and be regulated by the committee?
The obvious unit of measurement for Round Tuits is the "mañana". However, when I look at my "workbench" (aka desk in my study) it appears to be full of mañanas and not many RTs - maybe an RT is defined by the number of mañanas endured before it was got round to!
As for format - I find they're very palatable lubricated with IPA. That's IndiaPaleAle not IsoPropylAlcohol......
They are, however, definitely non-breeding. Said workbench currently contains various parts of five locomotives, all of which are definitely "nearing completion", but no sign of the necessary Round Tuits .... any year now!
Just as an illustration, this will probably be the first train to arrive at Stowe Fen, once the latest batch of RTs arrives from C&L and some more track gets built....E4 no. 7492 plus a rake of Danny Pinnock's ex-GER corridors. As you can see, still plenty of work to do, but it will happen one day!
