If you do the building straight the train looks wonky & vice versa this looks right as they wont build buildings wonky on purpose

Excellent shot, I'd have taken a tighter crop around the train and removed the problem.

Might've been tempted to lose the lampost, but these trainy things have a bad habit of going round corners Wink

Off to grosmont for the Gala weekend on friday, can't wait! Smile

It's such a great image, Bev. I'd use the straighten tool, which is just a line, vertical or horiuzontal, press ok and if it's no good, try again. It's very useful, especially when you have more than one straight/wonky line.
Edit: I tried that, unsuccessfully. Then I used the perspective tool and got the lamp and train straight, but not the pole. Better, though.
