The cars/wagons look good and that sounds good!

Spotlight now on two famous santonniers from Aix en Provence.

Santons (Provençal: "santoun," or "little saint") are small hand-painted terracota nativity scene figurines produced in the Provence region of southeastern France.

Hi All,

And hi, Jan Kytop. I very much enjoy seeing your paper model freight cars. As each nation in the world is justifiably proud of their own railroading history, model railroaders tend to build layouts and cars that depict the railroads of the countries they live in. Because of this, we don’t often get to see the layouts and rolling stock that depict vintage foreign railroads. In viewing your thread, it’s nice to see some of these little-known wagons from a bygone France. They are indeed quite colorful and it would have been a joy to see them being pulled along the rails through the French countryside.

Your models brought to mind a French rail car I saw many years ago during my travels as a musician during the 1970s. The attached photo shows the car I saw from the so-called French “Merci” train that was presented to the United States as a thank-you for our efforts during the two World Wars. A total of 49 cars were sent over, 48 for the individual states and one for Washington D.C. The pictured car was delivered to Kansas, USA, and was placed on the campus of Fort Hays State University in 1949. Because it had been displayed outside, 25-plus years of Kansas sun and snow had taken their toll on the car. The shabby wagon was ultimately taken in hand by the Hays American Legion, restored, and is now displayed on their grounds.

Please visit the Wikipedia, “Merci Train” site for more information. It tells about the history and it lists the remaining cars. It’s surprising how many still exist.

Jan, thanks for reminding me of the time I stood in front of the old, grey, wooden car and reflected on this memorable gift from the French people, all those years ago.

Score and fold,

Thumb Dog

Hi Thumb Dog,
In fact, I have also build five cars of the Gratitude train (in paper on a märklin chassis).
