    On a similar theme, here’s a couple of pics I took of Sir Nigel Gresley a few years ago pulling out of Grosmont and approaching Levisham on the North York Moors Railway.
    Edit, I’m not a trainspotter, the reason I took the pics was my in laws were on the train, we paid for them to have lunch as a joint birthday present.

    An 82-year-old man in Ohio passed away. His final wish to his family was to bury him on his 1967 Harley-Davidson in a giant see-through casket with him on his Harley so his biker friends could witness his "final ride" to the cemetery.

    Impressive, but so much could have gone wrong that you don’t wanna think about
