The train one is a great idea that I might actually be interested in doing. I went to a museum on Japanese trains in Nagoya in August and it was extremely interesting, there probably is more than enough material to fill a 1 hour panel.....

A few of these I could touch on, but I don't think I'd have enough content to bring them to a full presentation. I think one of these I could do, I have the books for the research already.
