DIESELPUNK-Street-Running Steam
We may not have had huge 4-6-2’s running through the streets of our cities but the Welsh had a little 0-6-0 running through the back streets of the village of Welshpool. Here the Welshpool & Llanfair’s No 822 ‘The Earl’ waits patiently while a thoughtless motorist’s car is move off the  2 foot 6 inch narrow gauge tracks. Soon to be featured on Welsh postage stamps.

Raccoon Express by James Ng
"A combination of steam ingenuity and street food culture, the Raccoon Express is a famous attraction of the Imperial City. A catchy tune performed by the chimney-bots signals its arrival and entices the public. A robotic cashier - human and steam-powered workers alike - cater frantically to a hungry crowd during its brief stop. Even the nobility welcomes the Express, for it allows them to sample the food of the peasants without trudging through the slums they consider well below their standards."
"A pack of trained raccoons trail the Express, cleaning up any mess left behind by the hungry mob near the tracks. Indeed, they are more than happy to finish scraps off the containers and skewers before placing them into the bin."

This picture  will be of great interest to Railway Enthusiasts as it shows a train on the rarely photographed Nudebia State Railway. The lady guard, dressed in the Nudebia National Dress, is giving the “Right Away” to the engine driver in the Nudebia Railway Signaling code.
The state of Nudebia was founded by Ivan Gettemoff as a refuge for nudists (or naturists as they prefer to be called nowadays) who were persecuted in their own counties. The state is run according to their own laws and the wearing of clothing is forbidden. Cameras are also forbidden hence the lack of photos as a concealed camera is difficult to devise. With the advent of mobile phones that take pictures more photographs have been seen as a picture can be taken, transmitted and wiped from the memory, leaving no evidence. Trains are pushed over the border and the receiving country hooks on a loco and takes them on their way. This photo was obviosly taken from the LaLa Land side of the border as the train heads off into Nudebia.First Lady Tindink of LaLa Land, which borders onto Nudebia , tells me that making State visits to Nudebia poses certain problems as she has to conform to their dress code once across the border and leave her clothes in the large locker rooms built on the LaLa side of the border. She is allowed to wear her Chain of Office though and has had a special one made for these visits that covers all her essentials and enables her to keep her dignity. In fact she tells me she has a minidress that covers less. She also mentioned that she makes a point of only carrying out State visits in Autumn when the weather is clement.

Dozens of Japanese commuters pushed a 32-tonne train carriage away from the platform to free a woman who had fallen into the 20cm (8in) gap between it and the platform.
The act of collective heroism was captured by a newspaper photographer.
A public announcement that a passenger was trapped prompted about 40 people to join train officials to push the carriage, whose suspension system allows it to lean to either side, the Yomiuri newspaper reported.
The unnamed woman in her 30s was then pulled out uninjured to applause from onlookers at JR Minami-Urawa station, just north of Tokyo.
After just an eight-minute delay, the train went on its way.
If this had hapened in Britain the police would have been there within seconds with their blue and white tape, declared it a Crime Scene and NO TRAIN would have moved for at least a week. They love a big production, those boys in blue, unless it involves risk to them ,
