Alain,

First, as a strong Francophile, my having taken my wife to be married in Notre Dame Cathedral de Paris, there by earning an almost unlimited number of romantic points which allow me to leave her several times a year to come and volunteer at the WW&F Ry Museum.  This also allows us to visit France every five years on our anniversary.

Therefore, I am pleased to welcome you and your interest and support for our railroad to our family.  The thoughts you shared in the second paragraph of your introduction on your impressions on how our Railroad Museum is operated for the historical significance and enjoyment of our visitors is why most of us put in the many hours of hard dedication and work to rebuild, maintain and operate our small part of Maine Railroading History.

Thanks for being a part of our Museum and for sharing your love of, and history with, the trains of France and Maine.

Alain,

Bob is correct, it is an excellent web site and shows a wonderful collection of railroad equipment in terrific shape.  I know you are as proud of Musee des transports de Pithiviers as we are of the Wiscasset, Waterville and Famington Railway Museum.

I suspect your Museum is now going on a lot of folks 'want to visit' list.

Bill,

Thank you for those kind words. I do like Paris too where I  go there every now and again since I live in the  Orleans outskirts. It's 75 miles away from Paris(only an hour's ride by train) . By the way Pithiviers is located between Orleans and Paris so as you get to Paris every five years why not to go down to Pithiviers visit the museum and ride the train I'll be happy to show you around.
