    An interesting little shot that I call "The Hitch-hiker".

    It was taken at the Sauschwänzle railway in the Black Forest.

    Oh man,

    one of the few places I never got to in my trainspotting
    days (the closest was probably Crewe), and unfortuntely
    I was an 80's trainspotter so no steam :( (except for the
    odd preserved loco)

    You'd be an LMS man then.?

    Hi Clumber,

    I have a few pic`s from my mates back home, it must be a great ride.
    A friend went home for a vacation and made a video from Piccadilly to Bury.
    I worked for GMT at Hyde road for 15years. Then the SELNEC days
    I left July 1980. well before Stagecoach took over.

    I wonder if I would have had the chance to drive the Light rail if I had stayed??;)
