Thank you my dear Füsun,

There are so many different scenes possible on this railway. The 'Planet' locomotive in the hyperlink has gone back to the Manchester Museum of Science & Industry, where it normaly lives.

Hi Steve,

Thanks for the visit, and the nice words. You are right, it was the last train of the day on a Tuesday, and very few passengers. Now the station has a roof opportunities for interesting outside photos are a bit reduced, but I must admit I did like the originality of your bridge picture!

Best Wishes Peter

It seems that for decades the idea that public works projects could be made attractive was missing from the U.S. This is beginning to change. I;m glad to see the idea is alive and well in the UK.

Hi Austin,

Nice to hear from you again. I don't know about this particular one, but many similar projects are funded by the 'National Lottery' a way of retrning a great chunk of gambled money back into society for mutual benefit. And thank you for taking the time to view the picture thoughtfully.

Best Wishes Peter

Ppb, we do similar things here, but usually put the money into schools or preserving nature. Many lotteries are on a state basis, but there are some where several states join together.

I call lotteries "a tax on stupidity." Over the weekend, a lottery ticket in the US was sold that will recieve at least $230,000,000 - an insane amount of money. How did it happen? Millions of people kept betting, and losing, $2 at a time, for months. Eventually, someone hit the jackpot.

Myself? I win $2 every time I don't play. If we get to use some of other people's stupidity for nature preserves or school computers, great!

Thanks Austin, nice to hear about other countries and their cultures! I totally agre with you. Any more money than someone needs to live out their life comfortably is a rediculous excess. As for me, well I don't contribute to this tax either!!

Best Wishes Peter
