    I think the sculpture was called "Two Bits" or something along those lines. Fascinatingly, it was made all out of recycled metal objects - there was barbed wire, cutlery, and even a sewing machine somewhere in there!

    Applejack_Coombe_Abbey.jpg

    Was going to submit this for the DVD competition but missed the deadline. Applejack riding on a petrified griffin outside Coombe Abbey in Warwickshire. I can only assume a cockatrice was responsible for the poor griffin's condition.

    Adding the time I took AJ to Edinburgh, taken from high up in Leith overlooking Arthur's Seat and the Castle. Although the aperture didn't really do that too well.

    Pity I also missed the comp, would have loved to add this and a few others to the selection.

    I hope this thread gets a good revival, thanks to @Loganberry 's link from the other.

    I've been volunteering at the Great Central Railway, a heritage line running from Loughborough to Leicester, for about 8 months. Yesterday, for the first time I had the opportunity to ride in a steam loco cab, as this weekend the railway is holding a gala event. I brought Colgate along with me.

    Excuse the dirty hand! Steam locos aren't known for their cleanliness, and when I got home Colgate herself looked like she'd gone coal mining! Time for a wash.

    The engine in question (an '8F' class) looks like this from the outside:

    At the start of the day I helped to oil her moving parts and clean the boiler cladding.

    Here's Thunderlane displaying a hitherto little-known interest in architecture! This is Grange Court, built as a market hall in Leominster town centre (Herefordshire) in 1633 and rebuilt some distance away in the 19th century.

    Here we see Fluttershy accompanying me on holiday in Scotland last month! This is part of the shore of Loch Broom, the sea loch on which Ullapool stands. The town has a population of just 1,500 but is nevertheless the largest settlement within 50 miles in any direction. It's also the main ferry port for Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis. The town itself is behind me and to the right in this picture.
