A lovely little town. When I was there, the CFBS could not go into the town because the bridge across the canal (Le pont-écluse) was under repair. All the trains were leaving from the Port area- which is where the repair shops are. Between my fractured french and the accomodating nature of the train crew, I was able to gain permission to explore the shop.

It was a great day, which included my first face to face with a Corpet-Louvet. The Cail was also runing that day. After reading about its history, I realized I might have seen it before. My parents took me to the Henry Ford Museum some time in the early 1970s, and since I was a full blown train nut, I'm sure I must have seen it.

Interesting that an English forum is doing a German translation although most of the pages don't yet exist in German.

The main text on there in red is just about passwords and the new forum software.

Pretty superflous really IMMO as there are well established, high quality German forums already.

e.g.

Buntbbahn

That's why we don't get many German visitors here. Sleep

That's a great shame Mike. I had hoped like everyone on this forum that G Scale Central would be all the good things that G Scale Mad was and more.
I'm saddened if there are people on there causing a bit of trouble and I wish that you can get on with discussing garden railways purposefully in any language.

Hear hear - surely these people, whoever they are, can't be allowed to ruin another forum? Just what are they getting out of it? Pointless cyber-vandalism... Evil or Very Mad

Surely if someone is causing grief they are booted from the forum.

Cyber-vandalism as well as cyberbully. You could be prosecuted for that now, what is good with internet (or bad) is all what you say could be retrieve.

Is it really neccessary to discuss what goes on on another forum on here? I find it all incredibly boring!

No it's not necessary Mikey but people are just expressing their views.

It is perhaps a bit boring but at the same time there are broader issues such as language and discrimination.
Some of these affect us as.

Maybe we should avoid washing other people's 'dirty laundry' though. Rolling Eyes

Surely the broader issues are whether a foreign language is acceptable on a particular forum. If GSC decide its not thats up to them. Our forum is quite happy for postings to be in whatever language, and long may it be so. What I dont think is right is the forum being used to re-air old grievances which started on GSM (it seems to me like that is what is being done). Lets all move on.

Time to get out in that garden and do some trains.

No excuses now like snow, kidney stones or blocked toilets.

...Phew...a bit dodgy in my garden at the moment. Railway development suspended!

A lot of gunfire going on. They're blooming hunting across the road.

I think there are some foxes about worrying the sheep.

Dangerous place this countryside. scratch

BTW Welcome to the French countryside Carl. we have the hunters every sunday during the season. If they cant get a deer (havent seen one round here in the last 5 years), they;ll settle for a fox (but only if its causing a nuisance), then its down to pigeons,finches,sparrows (anything that moves) Tell me why hunters spend a lot of money on camouflage gear and then have to wear a fluorescent jacket and hat in bright orange? (are all animals colour blind?)

We've had chevreuil (roe deer) in the garden by the tracks in the snow recently.

Plus some very big game birds - not the one's I used to know in London I might add. Very Happy
