    Glad you kept the descriptions en Anglais, as my French is technical based, and is ca marche, ca marche pas & boff (accompanied with my impression of a Gaelic shrug) :avatar:, there are a few other words the guy's tried to teach me, and although said with passion they wouldn't translate the meaning :whatever:

    I've enjoyed the tread, thanks for posting.

    A few people have asked me whether I plan to publish a book, or books, about the Metre-Gauge Railways of Provence. I thought that I might see what was involved in punishing an eBook .... As a first step, I have tried to design a cover for what might be a book about the Central Var line. I have published a series of posts on that line on this Group.

    So here are two questions for you ....

    If I was to do so, would you be interested in buying a copy and what might you pay?

    And ............... What do you think to this as a cover? Might it entice you to buy the book, knowing what you already do about the content?

    I think its an excellent idea, however as I don't have an interest in European railways I doubt I would purchase a copy.
    That said there are a lot of modellers out there that would love some in depth coverage with lots of photos such as you have done!

    Cheer's, Pete.

    Hello,

    As I have already mentioned, I am pondering converting my blog into an online book. This might prove of interest to people. I have taken this a little further and produced the first few chapters of the book I am imagining. They are at the moment missing a contents page and and editorial page but I'd appreciate comments on whether the book might be worth publishing on line and whether you think it should be free or charged for?

    If you are interested, please follow this link via my blog:

    Best wishes
