I disagree, its a picture of a locomotive, a train is the whole set up from front to back, I will now take cover.......

Given the aviation thread is full of anoracks, anyone own up to knowing what this is?

I took my first man in my mouth when I was 14
My umm father is a trainspotter... I'm so ashamed :cry:

Having been taught from a young age and dragged around many exhibits I believe it's a Deltic.

My father never slipped one up me behind the portaloos, and his beer belly paled in comparison to those on show from all the other middle-aged aspergers riddled men

Is it 'The Cannonball Express'?

Is Casey Jones at the whistle?

What about Fireman Wally and the rest of the crew?

That's Thomas's older brother, the one they never tell you about as he left home under' uncertain' circumstances.. but it is definitely him.. Tim the Drunk Tank Engine..and from the looks of the surrounding its just after he was released from the lock-up...

Spot on. Specifically its 55009 "Alycidon".

I've done the train spotting bit, now I want to join the Aviation thread and do some plane spotting with Flash and his mates.
Your train spotting experience will stand you in good stead;
I believe several items can be carried across the two disciplines; your anorak, your notebook and your thermos. Just don't bank on meeting your future wife... the only woman you need in your life is your mother :D

AND do you know why it's called a Deltic? 8)
