Tramway Demiel is undergoing a bit of a rebuild at the moment so in order to motivate ourselves we are having an open weekend on the 4/5 June.

I understand that we are a long way south and not many can make it but if you want a long weekend with your caravan,camper or tent you will be most welcome. Its free unless you want electricity, then its 2 euros a night. Come for the weekend or even longer no charge. We have spare fridges and freezers available as well as a seperate shower/toilet facility. you can also use the pool.
at the moment the track is not powered ,so its live steam or battery, but if I have time i will power the track Not digital though!

Theres plenty of time just let me know beforehand, so I can send directions.

It could be possible depending on the cost of travel and more importantly that is one week before the Baccalauréat starts so I could be busy or I could be very unbusy as they will all have wound down and switched off hopefully. cheers

I will let you know soonest.

Bonjour Daniel, C'est un portes ouverte, pas schedules; pas programme.

En Anglais: Saturday and sunday trains running from 10am til late (battery or live steam)

All day barbecue and we will provide burgers and hotdogs, pizzas, bowls of salad, beers,cold drinks,tea and coffee.

Bring a picnic if you prefer. If people want to stay overnight you can camp,caravan or any other means. We cannot accomodate in the house (nine of us live there!).
We are just outside the village of St Paul Lizonne on the D100. halfway between Angouleme and Perigueux. I will post detailed directions later on or please PM for any details you might need.

If anyone is thinking of coming to Mikey's and fancies a one or two night stopover enroute to take in the CFHC they'd be more than welcome.

We're about an hour north of Mike in the Charente, just south of the N141. Which is the dual carriageway between Limoges and Angouleme. If you were coming from Paris it is accessed from the A20 at Limoges or the N10 at Angouleme.

Any interested parties PM for details.

Don't know how the "Meteo Previsions" are looking down your way Mike, but it looks a bit damp and stormy up here for the weekend?

Still can bring an umbrella and a waterproof (it's been tested in the pond) live steamer!

a bientot

Mikey, I hope you have a great open weekend on the Tramway Demiel. As a moderately regular traveller to France (maybe 4/5 times pa) I would have very much like to have attended but am just waiting to sort out my final, or should I say, other TKR.

Bon weekend.

Phil K asked me to pass on his best wishes and apologies for being unable to attend the event. He is very tied up this year with his role as Mayor of Islington, I think he's opening a hospital or something this weekend? He will however be back in August and hopes to meet up with us all!

Back from spending a delightful day in the company of Mike and Glyn's family and friends...

Reading of the threat of storms I decided to go early and was the first to arrive, greeted by fine weather...


To find various daughters and grandaughters controlling the sound and smoke effects...


Demiel is looking fantastic and full of Mike's creativity...

I'm under oath not to give away all his creative secrets but here are a couple of pics showing the results...




One of which is his smoke generator (oops)...

Daniel(Tram47) and his wife Genevieve drove up from South of Bordeaux with a highly detailed set of LGB coaches...

(That's Mike not Genevieve in the background)

And gave us a lesson on wine production and selection over lunch...


Under the walnut tree, so we just had to try some walnut wine...


Sadly I had to leave at 4 to get back for the animals, and storm clouds were brewing overhead...


Huge thanks to Mike and Glyn and their wonderful family.

As a footnote, I drove back through three huge downpours on my way back North only to find things bone dry back home, we are now desperate for rain!

Thanks Brian for posting the pictures! It was only last night i realised I had not taken any!!

Thanks to you and Daniel and Genevieve for your attendance. I always thought living so far south would be a problem for forum members but it would have been nice if a few locals had come as well!
After you left the heavens opened and we had nice steady rain for a couple of hours (much needed and appreciated)
We, as a family, thoroughly enjoyed the day and your company. We'll see what today brings!

It looks like you had a great day Mikey. Thanks Brian for posting the pics running the day Mikey was never going to get around to taking many photographs to many other things to think of, and in the end forgot by the looks of it.

Peter
2.2 mm rain this morning
