This I've found yesterday while digging at Delcampe's gold mine.


It shows a German installation in France during WWI.







After studying the photo my eyes were staring at each other and expecting the other to talk.
None of both did, so I wrote to my Friend Michael Carl who is German, lives in Germany and model German prototypes.

Here his answer:

"The site looks to me like a creosote plant to impregnate wooden products like sleepers and poles.
But what are the clothes doing here? 
The German word "Lausoleum" is a play on words with "louse" and "mausoleum". 
Lice were an annoying thread in both world wars.  
So I think, the plant was used to kill the lices within the clothes with heat or maybe steam."

Looking the above once more I realized the combination of such a small turntable on an also short transfertable would be a great base for a small operating diorama...L:

This PDF contains the full 200+ pages book dedicated to military railways (all gauges) in Italy.

O.k., yes, it is Italian text but I carefully checked every photo and they are all in English.

(I hope the link works.)

The text says: '...esculpté en saindoux' >>> Google translate >>> 'esculpted in lard'.

French LARD huh ?

The other day I was looking to buy a phono amplifier to play my old seventies 45 collection 

Saw this Chinese one for a couple o Bucks

Google translate said it was " good for maximum gallbladder trouble " !

I did have problems with my last 45 amplifier but not that bad

Needless to say I didn't buy it


:f:

But the translatipon seems to be right. Monsieur Fauquinon made it in the name of (his?) shop selling meat delicatessen and other edible.
I posted Google translation as evidence, not as a joke.:old dude:
