Musee de Tramways a Vapeur et des Chemin de Fer Secondaires Francais, (MTVS) 2017

Thomas Kautzor writes briefly of his visit to this French narrow gauge railway on 4th June 2017 - the current website is http://www.musee-mtvs.com/category/accueil/. It updates his 2013 report.


I paid a visit to the MTVS in Butry-sur-Oise, where recently-restored Tramways de la Sarthe (TS) 0-6-0Tm 60 was in use (it has been back in service since April). CP (ex-Val do Vouga) 2-6-0T E96 is currently under overhaul, with the boiler with Israel Newton in the U.K. TIV 0-6-0T 75 is also operational. The other ex-TS 0-6-0Tm is OOU next to the workshops. CdN 0-6-0T 36 LULU was taken to the new MTVS line at Crèvecoeur near Beauvais in April, where it has operated a few times since.


The subject of the pictures should mainly be self evident from the above notes.
