Good tr so far Jeff, and it's one of the best from the trip The TPR antics are shown really well, and you proved that when taken at the right moment, a picture can be a classic

Great photos!

I just hope people don't go "whaa, whaa, when is the next update?" on this thread or I will slap them silly.

My Day2 was officially "Day 1" of the TPR trip.

We took the bus down to main train station in Madrid to catch the high speed "AVE" train to Seville. We had a bus waiting there to take us to Isla Magica.

Enjoy.

Not too bright, but fairly early. Look at all the pretty trains!! :-)

Waiting for our track number to be posted.

They knew that TPR was here, so the cleaning crews put a final coat of wax on the trains for good measure.

Track 7, car 5.

Meandering our way onto the train.

We almost filled up a whole car. Note: I almost caught James smiling.

Robb walking the aisle making sure everyone made it.

I like taking pics from moving trains. Deal with it.
DSC03574.JPG
No matter where we went in Spain, there were always construction cranes to be found. (seriously)
DSC03576.JPG
Beautiful Spanish countryside.
DSC03581.JPG
I can easily control my excitement. Elissa , on the other hand, can't wait for "bonus helix"
DSC03583.JPG
KT seems happy on her first high speed train ride. Until....
DSC03584.JPG
Robb get hungry. KT is mortified!!

Caught James smiling. Neener, neener, neener!!

The end of the line. The station in Seville.

Nothing like taking a serious picture in front of a great train. Mel wasn't about to let that happen.

Thousands of bugs sacrificed their lives, as the "TPR Express" must go thru!!

I love the very next picture after this quote. ;)


And do they really wax down the trains regularly? I'm fascinated by the bullet trains, but had no idea about how often they're cleaned, etc. I assume waxing aides with the wind resistence factor?

Anyway, cool pics.

El AVE, haunting me after graduating Spanish III (seriously, we spent like a week in my Spanish class studying about this train).

Can't wait for the bonus helix action! :)

Nice pictures!

Spain looks like it has some awesome architecture. Those suspension bridges were really cool looking.

This B&M donkey is so smooth!

Random themeing outside a live show stadium.
DSC03657.JPG
Our ERT was indoors (thank God!) in a 4-D theater. One featured a cat going thru a haunted house. The other, forgettable. The 3-D was great. The 4-D, so-so.
DSC03658.JPG
Our ERT ended on the spinning, shoot-em-up, pirate dark ride. Pretty cool.
DSC03659.JPG
More random themeing.
DSC03664.JPG
Cool name. Cool logo. Lousy ride.
DSC03666.JPG
You can just feel the pain. Or hear Robb yelling "Duck Me!" or something to that effect.
DSC03668.JPG
Entrance into the "bonus" helix. Oh effen joy! Actually, it was probably the only part of the ride that did not suck.
DSC03671.JPG
Splashdown ride. YeeHaw. no thanks. Water too green.
DSC03673.JPG
It's sad when the water is greener than the plants supposedly reflecting off of it.

Herbie "The Lovebug" meets Battlestar Gallactica.
DSC03677.JPG
The new credit that wasn't.

Gotta love their safety signs. They're kind of strange. This one says: No Gout. (Sorry Steve!)
DSC03680.JPG
No cash registers.
DSC03681.JPG
No one with a heart, which makes it TPR friendly.
DSC03682.JPG
No Dorritos syndrome.
DSC03684.JPG
It was for an Indiana Jones clone (kinda) themed to something like the Flintstones.

I'd say that's pretty random having two pieces of the Berlin Wall there? For 'themeing'?

Was it part of a bigger display?
