Does anyone know how the overhaul of C38 3801 is progressing?
last update on the overhaul website was in April?
My wife and I are spending a week or so in a village to the southwest of Carcassonne in France during September 2018. A little bit of research highlighted the existence of a network of metre-gauge tramways in the Aude. These tramways were only in operation for a few decades in the early part of 20th Century. Other matters will take priority during much of the time that we are in the department but I am interested in these lines and have pulled together a blog...
Tramways de l'Aude
This just noticed -- UP will get Big Boy 4014 & restore it
Sitting here browsing the forum, telly on in the background, I just happened to spot a clip of film in the docudrama "storming Juno" which shows allied troops on D Day advancing through a French village along a roadside tramway which seems to be 600mm gauge. I have seen this clip before, and have often wondered where it was, particularly as my dad was there on D day, and might have gone along this very road. Sadly he is no longer here to ask, so has anyone got any ideas on where it is and...
D Day narrow gauge railway / tramway
Picking up from post #96 of the Pannier Tanks thread...
In our many trips to Nice and Les Alpes Maritimes, my wife and I have seen a significant amount of engineering works, bridges, viaducts and tunnels all on lines which were neither part of the PLM network of standard gauge railways, nor part of the general metre-gauge network. It turns out that there were a significant numbe of line operated by tow main tramway companies in Provence, Tramways de les Alpes Maritime (TAM) and tramways de Nice et du Littoral (TNL).
These tramways ran on...

Some news from the narrow gauge paradise Saxony.
The pressnitz valley railway started in the year 1990 from the southern terminus of the former Wolkenstein-Jöhstadt line. Unfortunately the charity was only able to use the steam shed in Jöhstadt, because the socialist government built a massive "Plattenbau" (Panel building) on the former site of the Station in 1989. The station building was also lucky to survive and is currently owned by the volunteers.
After having started extending the...
Jöhstadt station (Saxony GER)
After continuous sunshine for 3 months today is overcast. Running a bit late 740 278 is making the right noises up front.
Recently presented at the Danish railway museum is a replica of Denmarks first steam locomotive.
Here is a great video posted on YouTube, Many thanks to the filmmaker!
