    Gotta be the back unless the driver is looking through that porthole (the rear light?).

    Yep, thats the rear view. The front isnt TOO outlandish looking, sorta prototype bullet train actually if you squint...
    The really wild ones are the ones with jet engine pods - like a nacelle from a B52 - on top. Woulda shown one of them cept they aint real streamline deco which was my original point...

    Talking of Streamliners..
    Bearing in mind that this steam loco, the Evening Star, was built in 1960 and steam wasnt replaced in the uk until the 60's..



    When do you suppose this diesel streamliner was photographed in Bedford St Johns Station? Surprisingly, the answer is 1938!.. pre war!
    With the start of WWII, Diesel fuel was no longer available for powering trains so it was parked up and forgotten about.

    Liking that pic Dr.Feelgood put up of the Spitfire living up to its name.

    Heres a pair of Hurriphoons patrolling Britains airspace on the lookout for Russian aircraft..



    Can you imagine the look on a Russian bomber pilots face if these intercepted it?

    A flying train! If you built one of those from London to Glasgow there would be no steel left in the world for anything else

    Perhaps we should build one like that for a few reasons, people would come far and wide to see it, could be built over existing railways so land grab kept to a minimum and it would create jobs for the steel and railway industries.
    Having said that we would probably plan to do it and then farm out the actual works to India or China rather than our own country.

    And it would keep thousands in work for all eternity, painting the bugger non stop like the Forth Bridge.
