Thinking I'd spotted some barges (yes, I know, more fool me http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif) to shoot up on the way home, I went down for a look....

My hectic life as the RAF's greatest living ace is full of enough danger and excitement without this sort of hassle. I call for the removal of this overmodelled fantasy train.

I have black friends that tell me white people are crazy. In movies it's always a skinny little white girl who opens the door where she thinks the killer or monster might be hiding. White people skydive, white people do extreme sports, white people race motorcycles, white people shoot each other.

Now, Low Flyer, seeing that you flew down during wartime over enemy territory to take a close look at a train that mysteriously glides across the water tells me you might be white. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/34.gif

My black friends would have used the F2 key and zoomed in on it. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

It is the dreaded German all terrain UBER train..

Had you not gotten yourself shot down, you might have seen it go through the thick alpine forests and across bogs and marshes with impunity.

Actually the train is under-modeled. It is a little known fact that during Hitler's use of the occult to help him win the war, the trains were able to go through mountains without the benefit of tunnels.. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Good grief Willie, if the public got hold of this there'd be no telling what could happen.
I'd better get back up and sort this develish contraption out (no doubt saving the eccentric proffessor's beautiful man-hungry daughter while I'm at it http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif)

No, in fact not. The Dutch railways is rumored to be troubled with leaves on the tracks also. It is said that leaves can make the train wheels go square http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif

And that isn't good for passenger comfort (as if we had any), safety and tecehnical health of the train wagons.

I got onto a train in the UK only to find it wouldnt go anywhere as the breaks jammed in the station LMAO. Then another train came to pull one of the good carriages away. I got on that one. Then that one broke down as well. Then I sat around for about 3 sodding hours waiting for a coach.....god i love England! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I stood outside the toilets on a train once with some folks all the way from London to Carlisle as you do, they were not happy, had reserved seats in carriage H the train carriages where numbered A B C D E F G J K LOL vowed then never to use the lousy system again and never have, costs more than a plane flight and you end up standing....

Radical? I think not. All trains have them in the front. In the rear they have two specially design red lasers for radiation detection. Leaves on the rails is nothing to be taken lightly. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

If you think that train is something, wait until you see that the Yankee AND the Imperial Navy both have amphibious aircraft carriers.

Like Howl's Moving Castle, treading land or water with equal impugnity.

They have that nifty mountain tunneling ability, too http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
