Maybe I will do something to smooth out his English later, but not now.
 
A couple of comments:  Note the coupler, which is fuzzy in the picture. It is an AAR style coupler. (for Ronal's benefit:  AAR is Association of American Railroads)  This is now the standard of most of the world.  Except for the special types used in passenger train sets, the old "hook and screw" remains the standard in Western Europe, maybe all of it.  Russia has their own system which appears to be an AAR knock off.  Similar but not identical.  India and Pakistan and Bangladesh may be also still be using a hook and screw type.  If the rails look close together, it is because they are.  Indonesia track gauge is 1067 mm, that is 3'-6".  The extreme rounding of the top corners of the cab of the locomotive is due to tight clearances.  
 
(I used to say to some of the European guys I worked with in the past:  Why don't you eliminate that 19th century style coupling and join the rest of the world in coupling system before you lose the chance to join the 20th century before it is gone.)

Not a problem.  Picture was clear enough to see what I was talking about when people knew what to look for.  Slightly fuzzy pictures are better than no pictures.
