Oh Dear

I'd hoped to put my Francophile leanings on hold for a few months while I worked the narrow gauge bug out of my system, unfortunately I stumbled across this piece in the Industrial Railway Society archives that's causing all sorts of thoughts to bubble to the surface again.

I'm afraid that there's little to report as I've been concentrating on other interests. No physical progress doesn't mean that the French confection has been ignored. One of my other interests is a book of layout designs that I'm slowly putting together; a Parisian micro layout features. The latest Continental Modeller  has also fired up my thought processes, In particular Ian Jowett's marvelous byway 'Aversac'. I have an idea that thought rather than deeds will be the trend this year.

It's been some time since I've added anything here, but I've not been idle. Much thinking has been done, and a lot of time goggling at information available on the net. I'm spurred on to backdate my proposals by the recent discovery of this site There are links to photos of the gorgeous 'bicyclettes' and intriguing single wheelers from close to the dawn of time. Wagons fare even better with outline drawings. I'm getting close to the point where I can start, once i make my mind up about what scale to use.
