The film presented here is a sound montage bringing together my photographic memories in scanned slides taken at the “high” time. The added sounds give a sort of third dimension to the show and will remind older people of noises that have become extremely rare today.
This new video presents a sound montage, with various background sounds, of some of the networks exhibited during the Rail Expo 2019 model-making exhibition in Chartres. Made natively in 3D, this film converted to 2D presents a less precise image than in HD but the addition of the soundtrack immerses you more intimately in the universe of these splendid models. Thank you to the organizers for contributing to the dissemination of model railways to a wider audience.
The “A Tout Vapeur 37” club made a long trip to present its HO scale modular railroad to the public of “Maquettexpo”, model railway section. Even in the shelter of the storm, the particularly stubborn morning humidity hampered the smooth operation of the blocks of the circuit but fortunately, the help of a hair dryer helped to ensure the show. This year, the catenary was in the spotlight, which caused the decommissioning of the train depot as a tourist attraction… Also the beautiful steam locomotives were partying. As for the “Canari”, the season broke records of affluence! The team returned tired but happy with his performance to the delight of many visitors. This film recounts this wonderful memory, as much for the members of the present team as for the other active members who contributed to the construction of this railroad.
The “A Toute Vapeur 37” model railroad club will present its modular HO scale railroad at the upcoming Maquettexpo show in Cherbourg on September 28th and 29th, 2019. The members have been busy for several months to beautify the decor, install the 1500 V catenary and improve the operation so that the show is successful.
During the open days of March 2019, the presentation of the fixed HO scale railroad was enriched by a sound and light show on the facade of the castle during the nocturnal periods. This film presents the three shows together. A nice complement to the room background projection already present last year.
The club “Circuit Vapeur Denis Papin” gathers on its shaded park of Chitenay vaporistic modelers specialized in large scale.

Thanks to the friendly team for its efforts to make known the wilderness model railroad !

The most prolific builder of 1:20 scale live steam models passed away in July 2015. Throughout his long life, he never stopped producing wonderful railway models.
Being the only filmmaker to have accompanied him for 18 years in his achievements, I had to give him a last tribute in the form that suits me best: the video.
Thank you, Raymond.
