Well, "the proofs in the pudding", as they say - more than half of us are over 50,     .

TBH, I'm not surprised, I must admit, at 71, I'm living an un-realized childhood dream, my parents could never afford - Meccano, as a hobby/past-time, yes - a steam engine to run it, no. Now i'm in the opposite situation, many steam engines, no Meccano,    

Cheers
