    Fantastc shots Lusker. That is a very strange looking Multiple unit in the first pic. Is it a diesel do you know?:)
    And a dreadful thing from the cliff did spring. And its wild bark thrilled around. His eyes had the glow of the fires below. Twas the form of the Spectre Hound. 'Ha' yer fa'r got a dickey, bor?' 'Yis, an' he want a fule ter roide 'im, will yew cum?'

    Nice set of pic there Lusker, very enjoyable.

    Just been looking through your flickr at the rest, very good indeed. There's something about machinery that is just so interesting, especialy old and unusual items.

    The diesel in picture 1 is it open inside? looks like there is no wall/partition between driver and that large engine? must have been a very unpleasant place to work, noise, heat, fumes, dirt etc.....

    What was your route around Belgium like? was it a big one or a well planned guided tour? Very interested in the amount of decent non-chaved sites over there. Getting tempted to pack my van up with the camping kit and get over there for a week in the summer

    Thanks NUTNUT

    Well the trip was planned well we where in Belgium for only 36 hours hitting 8 spots.
    I had every thing mapped down so we where not wasting time.

    Regarding the train 2 me it it looks like there where no walls or partition between the driver
    imagine running that.

    You should go to Belgium there is spots every where and its a small country
