The A class are 1980s rebuilds of the B class, which were introduced in the 1950s.

They're fucking good locos too. I don't think they show their age nearly as much as you'd expect. Plus they look gorgeous, with the smooth lines and all.

or i could post my current draft here:

it is lacking the meta (references to earlier posts) and an explanation of why white people specifically do this as opposed to non-whites (because i have none)

Awkward Animals

The awkward animal phenomenon most likely began with the awkward turtle, a hand motion in which the white person places one hand on top of the other, palms down and thumbs out, and rotates their thumbs while giggling at other white people who are in on the joke. This hand symbol is meant to subtly signify that something awkward is happening right at this very moment! As you might imagine, this is not actually very subtle, and has the side effect of making the gesturing white person also appear awkward at best and mentally handicapped at worst.

If you search "awkward animals" on youtube.com, you will be presented with video documentation a common white person activity: embarrassing themselves on the internet (subject of a future article). You may watch a few of the "instructional" videos (subject of a future article) to learn how to display animals such as "awkward whale," "awkward butterfly," and "awkward balloon girl," which is only recommended for advanced users. Experts have yet to determine if the animals differ in the type or degree of awkwardness they symbolize, or if the gestures universally denote awkardness and the iterations merely provide choice and cache to the white person who overuses them.

If you wish to fit in among your white friends, simply wait for something awkward to happen, and make up an embarrassing and not-so-discreet hand gesture. They will then ask you, "what are you doing?" "Oh," you can say, "it is the awkward (insert animal name here; more value is placed on extinct, mythical, or anthropomorphized animals)." Your white friend will look at you with admiration for being "in" on an aspect of this trend before they were. They will owe you a favor for this knowledge, and they may even high five you. As an additional bonus, you can now laugh as they repeat this hand gesture in future awkward situations.

They certainly have quite a retro look.

Two great tussles for the ages. Screwtape vs common sense, and Vazza vs Andrew.

Now Ian and I are having picture madness so that we can get to a new thread, Bumpass, VA, for Mizza's last day in Virginia. Join in!
