If this is an old school level crossing, what do newer ones look like in NZ?

A few tags back, I showed you a level crossing with swing gates; that was the last one left in Victoria and the style shown above are what they've been installing for 30 or so years now.

Over here, the railway crossings look pretty much the same. So I guess they are old school as well.


Got bruced again by Mr. Flashback, though.
It is kind of difficult being the only (?) European player here. Most of the TAGs are posted and grabbed while I am fast asleep...

Anyway, went searching for the new TAG yesterday, but obviously the Swiss don't like to put statues on their buildings. Although we have a bunch of big old buildings, churches, cloisters, even castles around, not one of those had any kind of figure on it. Lots of crosses and other abstract things, but no statues.
I had a look during my commute to work today - 40min by train. Nothing.
Maybe I should try it in France, but during the week it is difficult to get anywhere by bike...

Anyway it's fun here - thanks to all players!

Statues don't necessarily have to be of people...they can be gargoyles and animals and things like that. If no ones got this in a few days I'll consider loosening it up a bit.

I didn't see your drawbridge posted over on the NA thread...

If my horse statue on top of a building is OK, here's the new tag:




A professional sports team stadium or arena, and yes the Washington Redskins are technically a professional team...we just hit a little rough spot the last 10 years or so.

To the left is the Arena at Harbor Yard, home of the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. On the right, in the background is the Ballpark at Harbor Yard, home of the Bridgeport Bluefish.

Thanks. I was going to try and get something more interesting in the morning on the way to work but looks like weather won't cooperate. I'll have to go with what I got on the way home. Find me a bagel shop.

I'm out for this one again, I fear...
As far as I know there are about 4-5 bagel shops in Switzerland. And they are usually only in the biggest cities, so no chance.
Gladly I'm taking playing another TAG game in D/CH/A, so I'm not completely out all the time... hehe
Don't get many here, but I'm trying though...

How about just a place that sells them or the local equivalent. I'm flexible when it comes to creativity.
