60cm si vous s'il vous plait
« on: March 17, 2014, 12:15:14 AM »
I found this video of an almost two footer operating southeast (I think) of Paris (France, not Maine). It's a remnant of a fair size system built primarily for transporting sugar beets. Seems like every narrow gauge pike in Europe carried sugar beets. Would that be an S-cargo? Anyway, I like the beside the road running and the stop and go in the town of Pithiviers. If you use your imagination, one can picture this as the W&Q's Quebec division, ever waiting for its' southern cousin to extend north so they can ship sugar beets out of the port of Wiscasset. The language is right, and that Canadien Pacific paint job on the little mogul seems about right!

Hope you enjoy it,
