ENTER! Misc. Av. Contest: Trains

"This is the Night Mail crossing the border / Bringing the cheque and the postal order"

Ok lets get those anoraks out, pen and paper in hand, a flask of weak lemon tea, and the big boys book of Trains, and that one track mind.

Anything goes train wise, so full steam ahead.

Re: ENTER! Misc. Av. Contest: Trains

All aboard.......Last call for entries before train leaves tommorrow, grab your ticket and win some great prizes.

Runners up price = Free lifetime unlimited use of the Moon.*
Second place prize = Free lifetime unlimited use of Sun and Moon.**
First place price = Free lifetime unlimited supply of oxygen, plus unlimited lifetime use of Sun and moon.

So use your brain, be in the frame, dont miss the train, and you could gain, and seek your fame, and you could.....be...a pain......for wane.....and rain......

Ok that only works up till fame, so we will go with that.



Disclaimer*winner supplies own means of transport to and from Sun and Moon, including heat resistance protection and life support facilities**

Sadly, the French SAFEGE monorail used in Fahrenheit 451 has seen better days.

I don't think 150x150 could do a Big Boy justice

Isn't there one in St. Louis' RxR museum?
