I see a Renault Dauphine - first year 1956,

Citroen DS - first year 1955.


So maybe late Fifties ?

I believe that the (red) part of the line in the photo

was actually closed down, in perhaps 1965 ?

after a new tunnel was opened in 1958 ?





Monaco, has the 3rd shortest 'railway system' in the World.


Monaco - 1.7 Km

Lesotho - 1.6 Km

Vatican  - 0.3 Km


Canada, interestingly,

has the Worlds most railway Km per head of population.

Runners up. in that category, are Sweden 2nd & Australia 3rd.


Fast Eddie  :shades:

The line belonged to and was operated by SNCF, opened in 1868,
and sported two stations, namely Monte Carlo and Monaco.

The first tunnel, leading to lifting of the tracks and demolition
of the station building of Monte Carlo in 1968, was opened in 1958.

In 1999, another tunnel made Monaco station obsolete,
and it was razed immediately.

Now there is Monte Carlo/Monaco underground station
(shown in green on the map).

No idea where "Collour" might be located...

However, this advertising surely catches attention !

Most probably it's Collioure in French Catalania,

not so far from the Spanish border.

Another lokey from the woods...
Obviously chain driven ?

This is an ancient postcard, it says,
that's a 'Peerless' product working in the New River Gorge.

Found little re. 'Peerless' other than several traction engines
manufactured by the Geisler Company of Pennsylvania.

Might be a connection ?

This puzzle can be solved by taking into account that

many traction engines were converted to industrial locos.

Good... Why not ?

As all sorts of gasoline and diesel powered vehicles,
have been put on RR tracks,
this is a forerunner of this practice.

However I guess that this particular engine,
still was able to run independent of steel rails,
as the steering chain to the front axle is still present.
