    All I can think of is James Bond, what a neat means of travel!

  • It was lots of fun to travel on. I wish they had trains like this in Australia :)

    That’s what I call an ooer shot. The first thing I said to myself when I saw it was ooer! Some people might say wow or bloody hell or whatever but I tend to be an ooer person. Yep, that’s some damn pic, William. I think it has something to do with the contrast between the train’s smooth aerodynamic lines and the rigid structures surrounding it. Anyway, it’s brilliant.

  • Thank you mate. I’m glad you liked it.
