    I concur.

    We seem to have given up on the locomotive puzzle.
    Ans:
    One trains the guard, the other guards the train.

    OK Banshee, I think it's air.

    Counterbalance...
    II "It cannot be seen, cannot be felt,
    Cannot be heard, cannot be smelt.
    It lies behind stars and under hills,
    And empty holes it fills
    It comes first and follows after,
    Ends lilfe, kills laughter..."


    nothing? comes first and follows after, fills empty holes?

    III "Voiceless it cries,
    Wingless flutters,
    Toothless bites,
    Mouthless mutters."


    wind? wingless flutters, toothless bites?

    somnium...

    Welcome to sciforums.

    The obvious answer to your riddle is the letter 'm'!

    You are right on the third one. It is the wind.

    The second one you are oh so close on. Think not of the abscence of anything, but of the abscence of one thing in particular and what that abscence is called.

    [1] A box without hinges, key, or lid,
    Yet golden treasure inside is hid...

    [2] What has roots as nobody sees,

    1) "Eggses!" he hissed. "Eggses it is!"

    2) "Easy!" said Bilbo. "Mountain, I suppose."

    Banshee,

    Apologies aren't necessary. I almost thought I had posted something myself the first time I ran across one of TruthSeeker's posts.

    Red herring

    An old fahioned British type telephone booth.. phone off the hook is hanging down by the wire. On the floor a man lies dead with outstretched and bloodied arms poking through the broken glass panes. Nearby lies a large dead fish!
    What happened?

    NEW RIDDLE

    IT is more powerful than "GOD"
    IT is more evil than the "DEVIL"
    if you eat IT you will die
    A poor man has IT
    a rich man wants IT
