Question by Hand puppet pet: While anchored off the French Riviera in the 50’s there was a train that looked like a model train going in?
and out of the surrounding mountain range. It reminded me of Christmas and the way that Dads brought home toy Lionel sets not for their son to play with but for them, my question is do you think it was mainly for them to use to satisfy that need to never really grow up?

French mainline steam; Swiss electric locomotive; Paris metro cars

Maybe you know Arthur Honegger’s composition "Pacific 231" – it’s a piece for large orchestra which describes the run of a big and fast steam locomotive. Well, the engine he had in mind was exactly the one which has been carefully reproduced by the famous Märklin company in 1919. One sample of these you see in the center of my image. The locomotive on the adjacent track is a Swiss railways class Ae 3/6 I. In the background there are some cars of the Paris Metro.

I took this image in an old engine shed at the station of Erkrath-Hochdahl (near Düsseldorf). The site has been converted into a small railway museum, and it’s the place where a group of enthusiasts and collectors of historic toy trains meets from time to time. The tin plate fans set up two extended make-shift layouts (in gauge 1 and gauge 0 respectively) and enjoy running their classic rolling stock. The meetings are open to the public.
