Default Hello from Brittany

Located in north Brittany (France), I have many old engines especially french and two Lister (Junior A and 2L). But recently I bought a little Ruston BPR. Here is the photo before I bought it. Now it's completly disassembled but I think it will be better to present it in a dedicated subject.

Hope this photo will appear



P.S : Sorry for my english

Corentin

Hi Corentin,

Very pleased to see you here
You have found a high quality forum
You can notice that, like you, a lot of engines enthousiasts escaped from asylum
Wish you the best with your Ruston BPR
And see you soon

Cheers

Pascal

Welcome to the forum Corentin,

I'm sometimes based in Vimoutier in Normandy so not too far from you - and have recently learnt from the very kind Pascal who has already responded to you that there is an excellent engine museum not too far away from both of us in Giverny...The website of the musee de la mécanique naturelle in Giverny - is below and there is a fantastic 360 degree video that shows what an interesting collection it is! - you may find it useful as a source of information as well as Remy, the owner, is very knowledgeable.

http://www.hdmedia.fr/visite-virtuel...aturelle-.html

bon chance with your restoration and keep in touch as you go! - your English is perfect mais mon Francais c'est tres mal!

Hamish

Hi All, Hi Hamish,

We came to Giverny with Pascal few years ago. This last we was the yearly event but impossible for us to go

You have also an other museum not too far from Vimoutiers, it's smaller compared to Giverny but very interesting

Concerning the Ruston BPR, I will do a subject next week, but in which sub-forum ? restoration ?

See you

Ca c'est magnifique! - une autre musee pour les complètement engine fous! - what I'm trying to say is thank you - that's another great escape whilst in the region - many thanks for pointing this out - one day I'll try and make the show at Giverny as well.

I'd use the restorations forum for all of your news on the PB - and please add any pics as I for one appreciate seeing what you're doing - its the only way I learn these days.

Best

Hamish

HI Corentin,

I believe you are right about your choice, restoration section would be just fine to me.

Pascal
