As I was going to St. Ives..

On the way to St Ives for Xmas spotted this steam train at Bodmin Parkway, fantastic (the steam train’s on the right, btw).

And talking of St Ives, you may have heard of the following rhyme: “As I was going to St. Ives, I met a man with seven wives. Every wife had seven sacks, every sack had seven cats, every cat had seven kitts. Kitts, cats, sacks, wives, how many were going to St. Ives?” Upon being presented with this conundrum, most readers begin furiously adding and multiplying numbers in order to calculate the total quantity of objects mentioned. However, the problem is a trick question. Since the man and his wives, sacks, etc. were met by the narrator on the way to St. Ives, they were in fact leaving–not going to–St. Ives. The number going to St. Ives is therefore “at least one” (the narrator), but might be more since the problem doesn’t mention if the narrator is alone.” (Mathworld)
