was over at Lough Owel yesterday evening and visiting a spot where i spent many a day dossing as a nipper. never knew level crossings had letter boxes......

the pyramid shapes are made of hard rubber - am i right in assuming that they are to keep animals or is it us humans from entering the area? and for you brainey lads out there...how would you model a mat like that?

 

finally a clip of a railcar on the way to sligo....

 

 

bring back the noisy diesels...very hard to hear these comming - would scare the crap out of you

i did step on it...purely for research purposes - and it does the job!

 

They use a concrete version over here to stop people straying sideways off pedestrian road crossings - can catch you nicely if you stray onto it in the dark...
