Anybody who is an old railway fan and travelling near Lausanne in the canton of Vaud may be interested in visiting the Chemin de fer-musée Blonay-Chamby. Their website is in French and German. They are celebrating their 50th anniversary this year and there is an article in RJB about a locomotive that was loaned to the Blonay-Chamby museum by la Traction which is located in the canton of Jura. The la Traction website is in French, German, and English.
Thanks for the tip Peterli! These kind of details and advice really are appreciated!
I often see things that might be of interest but hesitate if what I have is only in French. I realize that people can dump a French (or German or Italian) text into Google Translate and get an acceptable translation into English. Sometimes there may be audio as well in which case the listener is stuck with the French or German (sometimes Swiss-German) or Italian). All the more reason to encourage people and their children to study a number of languages !
Always better to have a glut of information that may be never needed rather than too little! :) Post away.
I do wish I'd spent a bit more time studying French in school. Living on Canada's West Coast, my teenage brain didn't see a need for it! :(
