There are two ways you can get your club involved with the MRL Forums!
1. You can send the club's details to an administrator to be advertised such as where the club is based, when you meet up and what your website (if you have one) is.
2. If you want to go the extra mile, you can set up your club's own sub-forum! This will not only allow you to advertise, but also mean you and your members can have a forum of your own to use for your needs.
What ever you want, all you need to do is send an Administrator a PM to get your Club or Society added here, and outline what you would like from us.
The next few posts are a short series of posts about the Locomotives and rolling stock on the line from Nice to Meyrargues. The first of these covers the steam traction on the line:
And the second which covers Diesel power on the Chemin de Fer du Sud Central Var Line in the years before closure in 1950.
This is the final post on the Chemin de Fer du Sud de la France Central Var Line and it covers the rolling stock (wagons and coaches) which were found on the line.
Before we return to Nakuru to follow the main line towards Kampala, one further post about the Kisumu line. There was a short branch which left the Kisumu to Nakuru line within the confines of Kisumu city. This post focusses on that line.
The next two posts cover the length of the old Uganda Railway to Kisumu and Butere. Originally, this line was of significant strategic importance. Trains along the line provided access to Lake Victoria and the inland steamers that then provided access to the Great Lakes region and to Kampala via Port Bell.
The construction of the line from Nakuru to Kampala and beyond changed thing significantly and the old main line became a branch-line and has seen little traffic over recent years.
The journey along the Central Var Metre-Gauge line between Nice and Meyrargues continues with the length from Lorgues to Sillans-la-Cascade:
The next length of the Central Var line runs from Sillans-la-Cascade to Barjols:
And now from Barjols to Rians
And finally from Rains to Meyrargures
All that remains now is to provided some deatils about the rolling stock and locomotives on the Central Var line.
And now the last length of Le Macaron. The distance from Sainte-Maxime to Saint-Raphael.
There is one further post in this particular series which covers the locomotives and rolling stock on the line. ... So, the post below is that final post on the Toulon to Saint-Raphael metre-gauge railway line.
