Seems I might have Rhinoitus, can't see either of Paul's piccys, or Rhinos copy of them!!
If what you are seeing is just black rectangles then that is what you are supposed to see. It was a joke.

as the train has got no windows, i supect, that the completly black pics, that i see, represent the view through non existing windows.
(but, maybe, i looked to the wrong direction...)

Exactly. My attempt at a joke was based on those totally black postcards you can buy along the lines of "The New Forest at Night"

being old, my first thought was very political incorrect: "oh, a n... in a tunnel!"

then the still active rest of my brain made the connection: black - tunnel = no windows -> :think: o_O :giggle: :cool:

Probably originated with Arthur Ransome's stories - I seem to remember the boy Roger once drew a 'scene on a dark night'

As a young and impressionable child - I never forgot it, but never managed to go to sea ;););)

Glad to hear you were brought up proper, have you read them all?

And how are your picture woes? Seemed a strange problem.

Great Western IEP and LNER Azuma’s have a set of seats with a similar but mostly grey view of nothing. Looks like the old Railway is leading the way with the Window Situation.

Well, my mother used to read them to my brother and I at teatime - I think we covered the lot, except Coot Club which I think I read at a later time.

As for pictures today - it's a bit like Paddy when he jumped off the roof of a skyscraper, as he went past each balcony they heard him say, 'So far so good ................'[/QUOTE]

10% inclines are no bother... now that is where I went wrong....
When building my layout I should have installed 'atmospheric drive'.......
I will just have to continue to soldier on with multiple heavy motor drives instead.... .....but next time.......

I mean, I like the idea, but just imagine the pandemonium at, say, King's Cross when the slug moves off down the tube and the load is too much, leaving the train behind o_O o_O o_O

Who brings the slug back? - it'll have got to Peterborough before anyone can stop it :devil::devil::devil:

Something similar happened with the first train through the Chunnel the loco started without being attached to its train. A railworker walking along the platform towards the camera realised what was happening, took off his hard hat and held it over his face as he walked past the camera.
