Thanks again to David for the win.

Number is set for this round, between 500 and 600.

Reprise of the Rules:

The Last Person To Post Wins thread, general rules:
1. Winner of the last thread starts the new one with a post of these rules.
2. Chooses a future event which triggers the winner, e.g. post number, date-time, and records it privately somehow (yellow sticky, etc.)
3. Everyone has fun posting until the target event is reached.
4. When the target is reached, old winner posts declaration of new winner and also PMs them.
5. Shortly after this a Mod will lock the recently won thread.
6. Go to 1.

Supplemental rules:
A. Multiple posting (the same poster posting two or more posts in succession) is frowned upon, and no element of a multiple posting may trigger the winning event. Thus the first following non-multiple post will win.
B. However the winning event is defined, it should probably take less than 600 posts and less than two weeks to achieve.
C. Posting of larger pics is discouraged (Modem users do still exist, sometimes people read the forum via their mobile data, and these threads can get quite long.)
D. Don't post any clearly copyrighted pictures.
E. The post rules listed to the left of your post box are all enforced.

And Awaaaay we go!

As far as the parallel competition is concerned, it was fairly clear from 1218 that we were looking for a classic steam locomotive. I had a look for others and the numbers I was considering were (in the order I noted them): 587 520 542 630 610. Unfortunately I didn't find a number 24 away from any of them, which I imagine in this case would be 563 (it's all a question of deciding what to look for and I looked a bit differently today). With the which-digits-it-contains clue I should probably have suggested 587 anyway!

Summer yet?
Dunno.
We are supposed to have a near record low tonight of 31f with frost advisories.
Hope it doesn't stunt the fresh buds on all the trees too much.

More meowing, less hissing. I speak meow, do you?

Have made friends in this life.

That's why i made it a question. For some of us, it's summer temps too soon, for others, it's more like late Fall than late Spring ...

Some of my friends call it "Wizard weather", while I prefer to blame it on all the politicians spewing hot air and diverting the jet stream .....

Officially British Summertime, as far as the clocks go, began on 31st March 2013. That is of course total Rubbish!!! AS anyone that lives here will tell you, Summer means warmth and sun, and we never get that until at least June. Now is simply late Spring with all the usual showers and cold. Don't listen to anyone else telling you different ....
