The Party Train with a Political Message - KesterTester74 (Extra Clues Added)
Updated: May 26, 2022
Linking two cities in the CEE-SEE region, viewed from Madrid, Paris & London this train appears to be just 'fun' - but it means something more to the people who actually ride it.
Photo: It seems you can dance the night away and have fun in this train, which runs from where to where, exactly? (Please note: I'm not sure if it's always this much fun.)
A different kind of Tester this week - these aren't my photos nor those of any readers for a start. Just what is this train? And how is it 'political'? (And, so I'm told, it's quite controversial back home.)
It may seem impossible to answer from this one pic, but I'll give more clues through the next week. OK, as I'm a softie, here's one for starters - it's linked to a competition, though one I wouldn't normally take any interest in. (It has nothing like the global prestige of the KesterTester, for example, and the winners don't have the opportunity of buying me two beers - but I suppose it takes all sorts.)
Answers via the site messaging system or an email - please put in KT74 somewhere in the message so I don't miss your entry in the deluge :)
I'll post the answer to KT72 (Small Town Scene) on Sunday or Monday, so there is still time to enter both that and KT73 to boot.
Have a great weekend!
UPDATE1 - Another clue!
Photo: Here's one station on the journey (And our hero seems to need to tell somone about it) :)
Photo: Journey's end - at least for the rail section.
I think there should be enough clues up there now!
UPDATE: This Tester proved far tougher than I had imagined.
Csilla Davalovszky's Spanish colleague was convinced that the hero in photo 2 was 100% French, so reckoned it must be somewhere in France.
Zsolt Maroti did proffer the correct answer, but only after I'd posted this Youtube video link, below - sorry Zsolt, but I'd lose my Tester licence if Brussels got to know I allowed your entry after doing that. (I wanted to post the full results on Tuesday, but ran out of time.)
And there were only two other correct entries - so I dispensed with the Black Woolly Hat and tossed a coin (a Ft 200 coin) and that came Chain Bridge up - which meant Thomas Chilton wins this week's most coveted KesterTester! (Bad luck, Richard Lock - you were the Ft200 side.)
But to find the correct answer, see:
And this made it to Number 7 in the rankings - despite its very political message - at least, it's very political if you understand the local geo-politics.
I will add another clue to KT75 - A Bit of Baroque - immediately after this, so take another look if you haven't got it yet!
