Lost...1, 8, 11, 32, 38, 307, 322

By saltireblue    
The inspiration to the numbers in 'Lost' came from the mysterious disappearance, over a period of some 20 years, of trams that were reported missing whilst en route in the city of Oslo. The numbers refer to the carriage registration number.
In total, 108 passengers and tramway employees disappeared whilst on board these trams. Coincidentally, the same total obtained by adding together the numbers from Lost - 4+8+15+16+23+42
Now isn't that very, very strange indeed?

I expect all the trams had been constructed between 13 and 19 years before their disappearance. Teenagers often go off the rails Blush
An absorbing series of semi-abstracts, very stylish.

They were probably lost on the SM91, which had rear doors for people to exit the tram, but they had to be pushed open manually by passengers from the inside, and a lot of people fell out! Sad

The trams were supposed to have started running in Edinburgh a couple of years ago Malc,
but they are lost too !!
Good colourful offerings here.
And I have finally got some colour back in my cheeks after my illness.
(I just wish it was the cheeks on my face though !!)
