Now that’s a first for me, a goods train pretending to be a canoe. Nice capture, not so nice to have the flood though.

That must have been a very difficult ride for the railway-guard. Dangerous too.
thanks for visiting, yes Europe should remain the colourful jigsaw puzzle it always has been, I agree with you. It is far more interesting to keep one’s own traditions.
