Saturday Evening Entertainment

On the living room couch tonight, with a glass of wine, reading Le Train, a model railroad magazine from France my wife picked up for me when she was in Europe a few weeks ago. It's a lot of work to get more than the high points out of the articles. My not-even-close-to-conversational French is hardly tuned for the specialized words and phrases used in e.g. an article about the history of the rail line crossing the Pyrenees, or the last rail-based freight services in central France. Nevertheless, an interesting exercise.
