tubeguru: 9 out of 10 (Q3 incorrect)

greatkingrat: 9 out of 10 (Q0 unanswered)

Andi: Zero out of 10 (all incorrect)

uefacup81: Zero out 10 (I was considering giving you a point for Q1, but the unit numbers are not actaully painted on the unit, they are transfers/vinyl stuck onto the cab front).

barrykas: 6 out of 10 (Q1, 3, 4, 0 incorrect). Use of the word "approx". in Q4 made you miss out on the the scoring as the word approximately to me means "in the general region of" and I asked specially for the nearest half mile.

starkey: One out of 10 (Q9 correct)

sam: 6 out of 10 (Q1, 4, 5 and 0 incorrect).

Call me EVL if you wish but if you feel you need to complain please send your comments on the back of a postcard to....
Well, if I'm going to be picky I did get question six correct... and I think the one about the cormorant and rabid dogs was painfully close to a tripcock...

Having reviewed your answers, you did get Q6 correct, which I must of overlook when totalling up. Thats one point to add to your overall score.

For someone who's only entered two rounds and hasn't taken it remotely seriously, I'm doing well!

That's because Starkey is carrying his form over from the photo rounds.

Sorry about the severe delays to your enjoyment but Railbenders IV will be posted up during the weekend (most likely on Sunday). Railbendered out? Certainly not, still got quite a pool of questions of various grades to quiz you with.
