This is just fantastic Dave, just around 100 kilobytes, it's even hard to believe!
And now, finally I realize what I'm looking at, a real treasure, an old five plank British standard wagon. Can you imagine that I have actually built 18 wagons of this type, slightly different 2 and 4 plank wagons. Click here to view a pair.
Please, map this picture and keep it here on Panoramio. I wouldn't say no to the story about this place either.

Dave, I tingle at all this!!! The links within links are incredible! * "I tingle", Peter Ustinov in his Oscar-winning role as Batiatus in Spartacus. The part recently played by John Hannah in the latest TV effort. If you haven't seen it, it is currently being repeated. If you have seen it well you'll know what I'm getting at as it's virtually soft-porn. Those Romans............................!!!
I get a feeling of anxiety, perhaps a sort of tingle, when thinking of this one of the first railways in history, and the men working all their life on it, to the bitter end sometimes. It was for sure not better in those days.
Thanks for taking a look/see here 'Geoff' and 'Carl'.......but whats with all this sudden epidemic of...'Tingling' ??...and is it contagious...?..
It was Geoff's fault! Even if I remember Spartacus I don't have a clue about any tingle, I just grabbed the hook, to get a tingle!
PS. Sure it's contagious, wait til you make your next comment! DS.
Dave/Carl, I still tingle!!!!!!!!!!!!!
