Tnx for visit! :)

I am sure this rails never are used for ICE trains! :D

Even, I am in doubth this rail are ever used in last years? Line in recent years can be served for peatery, but never for passengers lines. :)

Would be an interesting route for bricklayers; after using this train the sand for the concrete would be riddled. :)

As far I seen in both directions from railroad crossing, lines goes ~straight. In darkness of forest shadows can be seen for kilometer or two's.

Sure, I was a little scared left my car alone in the middle of nowhere and follow this gauges only to see - what's-up-next behind that skyline. :D

Might be after slight curve this lines changes to something like this? :D

Don't worry about your car if it's --> like this or --> like this. But if it's --> like this, then you have to think about if you wanted to live it alone. :-)

It must be a very wiggly ride! Maybe the popular drink to serve during this ride is a vodka martini: shaken, not stirred. :-)

Yes, it takes only 007 seconds for that. :-)

Ainars M -2 on November 2, 2007

Thank You for funny comments!

Btw- when I seen only most recent comment my first idea was, You speaking about 007 seconds to be enough for stole any car, if someone left one in the middle of forests!

And I thought before, gone is possible only in sixty seconds? :D

Sorry, I didn' see this one (with Nicolas Cage I think), only the trailer.

Ainars M -2 on November 2, 2007

I seen with Nicolas Cage only trailer too, and still looking forwards when this will showed on TV.

But instead of this I seen few times the original (1974) version with H.B. Halicki. I love that movie because there was seen great Mustang! :D

That looks like a scary track to ride. Nice shot.
