French Coffee

Well after much unnecessary faffing around this week due to me being a complete and utter numpty I have now finished the upload of the French registered locomotives and wagons.  So what did I do to earn the title of various swear words which I won’t repeat here?   Just as I started to process some E coded German wagons I noticed the dates on some of the files did not look right.  Somehow I had managed to insert a 1 into the year of the filename.  Of course, sods law dictates that I copied and pasted the file name over and over again, just altering the wagon data etc each time.  This meant I ended up with a mere 4,000 files that had a dodgy date <Please insert bang head smiley here>.  This included files I had already uploaded, so last night was spent replacing them whilst uploading the new files.  I have now gone through everything so hopefully all is well again.  First picture to highlight the recent upload is one from the BB 37000 series of locomotives.

Now onto some wagons.  First up something with a different shape.

One wagon that I liked the livery of was this one.

The final image of this post will bring back some memories for the UK readership of this blog, with the code of Zaffns (the ff means Great British loading gauge, suitable for channel tunnel only).  A single f would mean Great British loading gauge, suitable for ferries and channel tunnel.
