So, this is the "go faster" dial...rev it up, Astrid!
Picturit: I will put it up 'go faster' today so that the weekend comes faster indeed.....
Seen in the train in Königswinter, Germany.
Astrid.
I'm so glad for your reply to Ray so that I now know what/where this is. HA! I don't think I would have ever guessed in a hundred years. smile
Picturit: It was at the drivers seat of the pilot of the train up hill.

Well this thing isn't doing any fahrening today Astrid!
Picturit: I know, we came to a total standstill..... I declare it is weekend ha.
Astrid.
I wonder what it is for? It is not doing much at the moment but it looks good
Picturit: To see how fats the driver is driving in the train......
Astrid.
And will you be whacking up the Fahren this weekend or leaving it on zero Astrid.
Picturit: I will start with a nice run around the citadel, I started 2 weekends ago, Saturday's and Monday's in the early mornings. I love it, it takes me about 34 minutes and I feel great.
I also have a jigsaw puzzle on the table and I like to finish it.

A lot of Fahrenheit going on here.
Picturit: And a change to snow tomorrow.....
Astrid
Funny how its German meaning is completely different than an abbreviation for temperature.
Picturit: I know, language is a funny thing. We often compare the Dutch with the English, too.

The things that catch you eye, Astrid!
Picturit: smile it intrigued me that it said 'Fahren'...
Astrid.
nice grey
i like the texture, Astrid. and what do the graduations stand for?
Picturit: Thank you, Ayush. Yes it is the speed-meter for the pilot of the train, so he can see how fast he is going.
Astrid.
what a wonderful imagination to frame this speed control leaver on an old train Astrid... i hope that you can rest for the weekend....petersmile
love the texture!
Picturit: Thank you. I had a giggle about it, for it was in the train going up the hill with the Ruins of the Gragenfels, it was so simple, one knob...I bet that driver knew when the trains started moving....
Astrid.
Fabulous image smile
What a cool shot! I remember some old Volkswagen commercials here that used to say "Fahrvergnügen" - enjoy driving, yah?
Picturit: Yes indeed. I have to say that maybe that 'Vergnügen' is gone because of the big cheat.....
Thank you, Elizabeth.
Astrid.
a great detail, Astrid...
