Thanks John, always appreciate your feedback.

This was a fun composition for me. I always wanted to add a train with an aircraft in ROF.

I read about strafing runs of the P-47's during WW II. These missions were very dangerous because they had to fly low and close to a well defended train.

I am sure WW I strafing missions were also very challenging.

Thanks Graham appreciate your feedback.

As I like trains also, I thought it was time to go for a Train/AC composition. Spent several hours until I got the "shot".

Cheers, Mike
