Yes, you are looking north. The same seller (kayakers1107) sold a matching view a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, the museum did not purchase that slide; we are still deciding if we want this one for the archives.

This same seller has also sold many B&H/B&SR, Monson, and SR&RL slides; for those interested in those roads.

This popped up yesterday. I'm having trouble determining the orientation, but my guess is looking north?

Two Footers outside of the US / Re: AMTP in Pithiviers, France
« Last post by ALAIN DELASSUS on June 21, 2018, 02:27:34 PM »
Hi you all !

      Funnily enough, there are two mechanical signals on the AMTP although there was none on the TPT neither on the other French two-footers, I think. Only  three-footers got a few of them. The first one is a danger signal that has been salvage from a  well known French three-footer the chemin de fer du Blanc- Argent that still partly exists nowadays. It's located at the  far end of Pithiviers station and concerns the westbound trains to BellĂ©bat. It is intended to avoid a " cornfield meet" with an on coming eastbound train. When that signal is "on" you can see a square iron plate painted in white and red check that is at right angles to the track. It means STOP and it's an absolute signal of course . When the signal is "off" the iron plate is parallel to the track and  you can't see the painted face and then it means proceed if the go- ahead signal has been  given by the Pithivers station agent. At night the danger signal shows  two red lights when it is "on" and a green one when it is"off". In French such a signal is called "un carrĂ©" a square.  I'm going to tell you about the other mechanical signal,  a round one, later on.

      By the way go visit my fb page, every week I post AMTP photos, hopefully you can see those signals,  and follow me  on  the AMTP trip down memory line. Explanations and pic captions  are in English too. See you soon !

Here is the 1937 Head Tide view. I cropped out the "ebay scan" that was across the top.
Note that this is for illustrative purposes only; the WW&F Museum does not own this photo nor the right to reprint it.

I heard from someone (may have been Peter Barney) that the building still exists and was moved.  Wayne and I tried looking for it, but didn't really find something that even remotely resembles it.  Maybe someone can verify this.

Track crew may change up a little on Saturday, depends on how commited I am. I really want to see us eliminate one of the speed restrictions Saturday morning or depending on how things go, maybe Saturday afternoon after the last train.
