Alain,
I am sorry for your loss.  No matter what the age, our mothers are still our mothers, who cared, raised and loved us for our entire lives.

So sorry for your loss, it's always a difficult situation but especially when it's your mother.

Looking forward to hearing from you again...

Alain,
Mon ami, so sorry for your loss. You will think of her at the oddest times. Each year, my first glimpse of forsythia reminds me of my late mother because she would tell me that when she saw them in the Spring it reminded her of my birthday. Odd, I know. When it happens to you, you will smile, think of your mother, and shed a tear at her memory.
Dave

NEWS FROM PITHIVIERS
Hi everybody ! Skimming through back this topic I 've realized I haven't actually given you any news since early November and it was about time I kept you in the loop. After the unbelievable success of the Halloween Specials-see reply #267- the Santa's trains were less popular with only 509 riders while the wintry weather and the thin sheet of snow on the ground  perfectly matched that event. Finally the 6749 ridership has been the best one since 2006.
 2022 has been in 30 years the most eventfull one as many regards and it is an other outstanding milestone in the history of the association plus it will remain a wonderfull memory for all the volunteers and for me.
I'll soon give you some news of the inter-season.

 A Santa's train is running slowly through Bell├ębat but the station is closed so the train won't stop. A one of a kind picture because of the snow on the ground and that non stopping train on its way to Pithiviers.

I like the storm curtains in the gangway. Nice feature for winter running!

  Sorry but something has been wrong with the previous reply. Well I'll resume. The first topic is about the last years of MTP 080 KDL that currently gets cosmetic cares before entering the museum.
