Hi Hardy

Thanks for the photo and the accompanied explanation. Induced by it, I
remembered an old Yiddish song, composed at the arrival of the train drawn
by a steam engine (Lokomotive) because of fear that it may bring disaster.
May be they were right; the technical progress brought also the most lethal

Here is the song:

Oi hot er a Feifer mit an eisernem Koiach

Fon hinten giesst sich Wasser, fon Oiben geht a Roiach

Riboinoi shel Oilom, verschelt ihm seine Juhren

Er soll nisht kennen feifen. Er soll nisht kennen fuhren

I hope pour readers understand it. He charm will be lost in a translated
