You wouldn't have thought a train would cause much of an issue.... was it spitting fire or something??? Or people throwing ciggies out the window?

No it had a faulty spark arrestor, and used to fire out lumps of carbon from its exhaust pipe, they didn't believe it could be thier train till we took in a bit about the size of your fist that we found about 20metres from the track!

You can be glad the old coal powere steam engins are a thing of the past - one that I helped restore in South Africa (I only did meanial tasks on it, like paint and scrub, nothing fancy) used to throw sparks and set the paddocks alight within the steam presivation grounds - it would have been chaos in between these cane fields around Cairns :shock:

Yeah if one just"accidently" jumped out, cleaned itself filled itself full of lemon butter and wrapped itsel in alfoil, and landede on the bbq it would be quite fortuitious. Now how hard is it to train fish?
