Let's make Victoria great again.

Another ill conceived, poorly thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

WHAT was all that about?
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Not a clue, but I like the ideas of mixing traings and F1 cars! :thumbsup:  Kinda reminds me of a rally Super Special stage.

Have there been races for steam locomotives, or is it a Steampunk idea?
 
The Rainhill Trials come pretty close.  Imagine a world where this became popular.

I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

The A4 was a gorgeous looking loco.

I must have traveled by one given the number of times I've been on the NE route to Newcastle in the 50/60's ,but I'll be darned if I can remember. Clear memories of the Flying Scot though, maybe because I also rode on its footplate once.  <_<
Decals my @r$e!

I can clearly remember standing at Thirsk station around age 8 or 9 waiting for a London bound train and my Dad going almost volcanic with joy when the loco turned out to be 60017 'Silver Fox' complete with the fox itself on the side of the loco!
