1. Very cool

Imagine the power in those engines!

In Europe, I saw trains with snowblowers on their leading engines clearing the snow from the tracks. Fun fact: in the novel and movie "On Her Majesty's Secret Service," James Bond was being chased on skis by some bad guys and he causes one of them to ski right into one of those snowblowers. Ian Fleming had perversely fertile imagination!

Way off topic but here's a trivia question. What much-beloved children's novel was written by Fleming?

5. We have a winner!

Someone once gave me an original hard-cover edition signed by Fleming.
