Dave/Haf: OK, here comes another side of me you never knew. (well, Haf prolly doesn't give a shit but you might, Dave).
I'm a train lover! I have $4,000 in N-scale European train stuff. PACKED AWAY for 20 years now 'cause I don't have time (or place) to do something with it. Have hundreds of pics of trains (locomotives, mostly). I love the Germany rail system and used it for thousands of miles.
AND, I was in Germany when they were building the ICE train (and tracks because regular tracks couldn't be used) but I had to leave before it was ready to ride. TGV was already kicking ass. BOTH those designs were sleek and beautiful.
I'm glad to see the world hasn't foresaken trains.
