    A LPB is a "Little Plastic Bloke", Britsh for man.
    So yes, a LPB is a person.

    And there I thought the "B" was for being, covering everything from an ant to a giant (out of scale) bloke

    That abbreviation came from one of our members after all his figures joined the union and went on strike.

    ...but so faithful were the engineers and firemen, that none of them ever left their engines! :D

    ... and strangely enough, the passenger trains were so comfortable that the passengers never got off at the stops, despite the fact that the waiters on the dining car stayed still.

    And don't get me started on traffic jams!

    I suppose why the model railroads do so well with track ALL over the place, like what John Allen reffered to as the "spegeitti bowl" is because, in most cases, the train is the ONLY mode of transportation that moves!

    If you play online games, an LPB is a Low Ping Bastard, or basically someone who isn't on a dialup modem and gets low ping times because of their broadband internet connection.

    HPB = high ping bastard.
