The title is not a reflection of the dining on British Railway Systems, it is the colour scheme from days gone by - the red is the blood, the cream is the custard.
Wow, that's great, Mike! Very psychadelic (howzit spelt) trains! Very nice the way they are curving around in the shot too, echoed by the curve in the roof. That's a veeeery good photo, my fungi friend!
Thankyou Buckets, Sue will you be my cheif critic?
I am greatly honoured by your enthusiastic comments and praises, but I just shoot what I see, Lucky, eh? That must have been a lucky day for me, as I went to the camera shop to complain that Only 10 days ago I had paid £499 for my Canon, IN THE SALE, and now the 'sale' is over, the same camera is up for £479, the boss credited me with 20 quid!
If you enlarge the map, you will discover that the WHOLE station is on the curve!
This is how it was designed-WAy back! to accomodate the fact that space was at a premium between the two rail bridges crossing the Tyne being so close together. (yeah, I know, MORE complicated stuff )Actually, on the inside of this enormous curve, the platforms are straight, WOuLD ANYONE LIKE TO GUESS WHY??
The two trains featured are cross-country trains, the nearest is in old livery, called 'Blood and Custard@ by officianados of this mode of transport, while the one at the side of it is a newr model, in modern colours.
Lastly, if I may be so bold, the true reason why they are so close in this station is that there simply is not MUSHROOM!!!
Similar mix of colours to your Larikeets, no?
Not 'Mushroom'. Oh, very clever! You know, Mike, you are such a 'fun guy, get it, fungi, fun guy! Tee hee hee, got you back!
Are the platforms straight because the carriages are straight?
Thanks for all the info! Glad you got your 20 quid. Actually, being as they were doing such a 'sale' scam, they should have given you twice as much!
HA! fun guy!!
