    Default Album from Engineer

    Guys,

    Got this one today.

    I like the discovery of the locomotive in the colapsed/blown tunnel.

    It looks like it was dug out by hand, I see no plant machinery?

    Shame about the ambulace train it looks like they buried the French soldiers directly beside it and made a nice mosaice (may not be visible on pic this size).

    I hate to see the poor bloody animals that are victims of the war without choice.

    Looks like they are prepping some defensive locations and are blowing the ground before digging.

    I also quite like the 'last supper' before loading up on the train (spork in use).

    Regards

    Jock

    I love the photo of the 'Spork' in use ! (2nd last photo - would 'Verladung'

    In fact the NSV (sort of a social services organization) maintained soup kitchens at the railway stations to feed the soldiers during rail transfers.

    In the (admittedly rather unlikely ) case anybody wondered and always wanted to know: the German word for "spork" is "Göffel" [from "Gabel" (= fork) + "Löffel" (spoon)] I kid you not.

    Interesting tidbit, HLP.

    I suppose they should actually be called 'Foons' then - en Anglais.
    Although 'Spork' does sound better...........!

    In any case, Jock, you are always finding such interesting photos to share with us !
    Regards,


    Steve.

    HPL,

    I will add it to my vocab but as I try to learn more German I have to forget childhood memories. I find it vey difficult!

    Thanks
