Also worth exploring is an old metre gauge line that ran west from Glos-Montfort (the station before Brionne) to Cormeilles which I will continue writing about when I get more time.

I found this story about the Rouen to Caen line which you might like.

Oh la vache !

Just checked and the N138 used to be the main Rouen - Tours road before the A28 was built. Now it has all changed.

Carl:

1. My 2005 Michelin hadn't caught up with the re-numbering; and
2. SNCF no doubt quoting the immortal words of the poet Bart Simpson, "Don't have a cow, man." Cool

As a further thought. As your lycee is a technical college, get together with the woodwork and metalwork masters and start erecting a guillotine in the yard. When the students ask the obvious question state that as law and order is breaking down in France it is planned to be used as the form of ultimate corporal punishment... That should keep the 'little' sods in order! affraid

You could also construct a trébuchet and offer it as a alternate means of transportation home, just in case all the petrol runs out. They could be learning history, physics, and civics all at the same time.

At last it seems to be quietening down...... cheers
No appreciable queues at the pumps and the sight of fuel deliveries.

It's the holidays and a change from the usual students I am doing a 'holiday school' with a small class of well-mannered college girls. Laughing
