Just a bit too "Far East" for me. But should you be able to travel via Limoges, Cognac or Bordeaux, you'd be welcome here cheers

Thanks for the invite, Brian, but unfortunately, la belle France is not on my itinerary this time; I am flying to/from Frankfurt and my business is in Dormagen (near Cologne). Koblenz is nicely located between the two.

I do plan a side trip to Eindhoven to visit Paul and his family again Very Happy.

Looking forward to it! And it seems you are bringing some very nice (Texas?) weather with you to Europe! It will be a sunny day!

See you tomorrow! (did you get the PM?)

Finally, some photos from Koblenz. Beginning in the repair shops (Koblenz used to be a major Deutsche Bahn repair facility).

This next one is interesting; I know it's the law in Germany, but even if you cover it up, we all still know what's under there and what it stood for. Twisted Evil
