Note: 'Otaku' - Slang for someone so interested in something he/she is confined to the house, i.e. computer geek, etc. In this instance it refers to 'Railway Mania' a disease often contracted in childhood, incurable in adults although seldom fatal. Those afflicted with the disease make life difficult for those around them, like an adict, they often require a 'fix' - constant reminders of railways, books, photos and visits. Like the great Italian movie director, Fredrico Fellini, they must constantlyparade their mania for all to see. Euthanasia has often been recomended, but thankfully, the internet provides a convenient way out (^^) - Mike Mayer
