Might as well contribute to the thread drift ...after all, it was my thread. Any of you ever seen the film "Tais Toi"? My nomination for one of the funniest films ever. Gerard Depardieu is a genius.

Bill you are truly French cultured. I'm impresed.
A great classic.

Depardieu is indeed one of Frances finest actors. I laugh just at his facial expressions sometimes.
He starred in Tais toi with Jean Reno another talented French bilingual actor. Most people know him recently for the Da Vinci code. My best Reno film was 'Leon'.

What a great thread drift.

Although my ancestors emigrated from Wales and Scotland, I have been told my name (Wray) is derived from "vrai" and is therefore French. I also had a cousin who apparently traced our family tree back to Charlemagne, although I'm also told most of western Europeans can as well. So it seems I come by my francophilia honestly.

I agree regarding Depardieu's face and expressions - truly the visage of a comedian. But he is also a talented serious actor. Jean Reno was also great in Tais Toi - a wonderful straight man.

Ian:
I read your posts on bashing your Spremberger several months ago. I really like the result - it has completely changed the character of the loco. The weathering is great as well. I'll have to post a photo of mine - soon as I take one. It's basically unaltered save for a bit of light weathering. I did put batteries in it and a remote control, but you can't see those. Thinking about converting the lights to LEDs as well to conserve power. Got to reduce my carbon footprint, eh?
