Two Footers outside of the US / Re: AMTP in Pithiviers, France
« Last post by ALAIN DELASSUS on May 23, 2019, 03:08:24 PM »
Hello ! I thank you guys so much for your kind replies, be sure they make my day happy. I like humor and I love yours, unfortunately  my knowledges in English don't always enable me to figure out your terrific puns
 Every WW&F members are by all means welcome in Pithivers and it would be a treat  to show them around the AMTP museum and facilities and to take a ride with them to Bell├ębat.
As regards this forum I second to Bob when he wrote in Letter of encouragement reply #4 " it is a remarkable daily connections that I treasure"; Moreover it enables me to merge my life long passion for the railroad and my 13 year old one for American English.
Some day I'll get to Alna to meet the WW&F familly I hear from everyday on this newsy forum and fb. By then I'll go on telling you about the AMTP idiosyncrasies and try to make the WW&F known in France through narrow gauge RR enthiousast fb groups. I wish I would convince  a few French railroad lovers to join the WW&F but  the language barrier is a hell of an obstacle. It's kind of weird because every French student learn English at high school for six years but they are quick to forget it  when they leave. Doing that is my humble contibution to the great task the WW&F started 30 years back.
Best regards.

Alain, you humor reminds me of how hard I laughed at Jacques Tati's hilarious movie Monsieur Hulot's Holiday way back in the 1950s. Non-stop laughing all the way through. My rib cage was sore for several days afterward

Alain, you are truly hysterically funny.  You have also added a lot to our Forum, and I hope you continue to contribute for a long time to come.  If I ever get back to France, I will be certain to visit your railroad.  I do hope you can come here and spend a week at the WW&F.  You will get the royal welcome from all of us.

Bob

Really interesting.  As you approach Trask Crossing you can see a car cross.

If you burn me ... you won't be surprised if you find clinker on the grate, I'm not first rate fuel anymore.
Alain,  Your last sentence was one of the best ones I have ever seen in the forum.  Not only that, nothing was lost in the translation.  Well Done!

TRACKWORKS MY TWO CENTS
In order not to be burn as a French heretic in the #9 firebox I 'm making things clear, hoppercars and automated hammers are only intended for MOW not for Montain Extension long work weekends.  If you burn me all the same you won't be surprised if you find clinker on the grate,I'm not first rate fuel anymore.

Thanks for a much-needed laugh!!  ;D ;D

Russ, Thank you so much for posting such an interesting app. I must say that it's the first time I really discover the whole ROW its curves ,grade crossings and grades. Moreover I can enjoy the scenery  and the close environment of the main. Great! I'm going to watch it a lot of times so I can spot all the details.
