Not so by a long shot, and there is a business in my home town that sells them commercially:


Some controversy on the rutas, but for fun there is Yooper FB page, also a Copper country page where lots of historical RR stuff shows up.

Wales is still in the UK???

I like this, but anyone rejected in the future for "Train too far away" has a legitimate grievance!

Hello Dave,

hope you don't get different rejections if you resubmit: there is steam around the engine might cause a cloudy rejection, the wall beside the loco foreground clutter, the way the Horse use might cause an unlevel reject and the Horse doesn't use rails thats am not enough railway Content.
Great shot , I like it very well. it gives a perfect Impression of an era thats gone. Hard to say wether ist taken now or hundred years ago. Hope you try a resubmit.

best regards

Oddly, there is no similar name for those of us in the L.P. "Elpers?" Nope.
Rhymes with slice, rice and mice, and probably should be spelled like "Tice."

This pretty much sums it up: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Thias
