Wait, IMCDb includes steam engines? There is no difference between these steam engines, to trains, except that one runs on dirt and one runs on metal strips.

That makes a huge difference :p
Or you could say that you list Diesel trains because they use the same fuel as 50% of the cars running in West-Europe? :D

The Great Dorset Steam Fair at night:

The fairground rides and all the lights are powered by showmans's engines!

With great reluctance I refrained from giving this Land-Rover its own page:

... well, it lacks three wheels, ... and an engine, ... a body, ... okay, a chassis, too, ... but the rest is definitely a Land-Rover, probably 109" Series II.

Wait, it makes a huge difference because one moves on metal, and the other on dirt?

No, it makes a difference because one has a steering wheel, the other hasn't.

Actually the TGV has a steering wheel :D Cf pics posted on /movie_90228-Le-telephone-sonne-toujours-deux-fois.html
But it is not free to go out of its track.

Bah la différence c'est que lui n'a pas demandé avant :D
Note que pour ton documentaire j'ai pas dit non, je demandais juste si ça avait l'air d'un truc sérieux et pas juste un DVD fait en vitesse pour une collection ou pour accompagner une revue.
Alexander >> what kind of documentary is it? As it is not listed on IMCDb, isn't that a too-obscure/unknown thing that is not easy to get? I ask that because Rinspeed asked me if he could post a documentary from a DVD sold in newspaper kiosks and other similar shops.

ben ce dont je t'avais parlé n'est pas vendu avec un fascicule ou une revue, juste les 2 dvd seul. Peut être sont ils vendu aussi dans le commerce. Quand au documentaire Ferrari, je l'avais acheté en magasin normal en vhs que j'ai transferé sur mon ordi ensuite.

I was amazed to find that it was not listed, as quite a few other films featuring Fred Dibnah are included: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0225139/
I bought the DVD in an ordinary shop. It has even got an EAN code: 5034504701779, and can still be bought: http://www.woolworths.co.uk/ww_p2/product/index.jhtml?pid=20133678

I might get some more of his DVDs in the future. There are still a few steam engine makes missing, and this doc provided eight new makes in 55 minutes! :)

I have got some other documentaries on that subject, but on video tape. First I will provide pictures that I have on DVD, even though the quality is sometimes not better.

Note for Alex: I've just posted a couple of pic's to you (forum: private mail) of my grandad working with two traction engines, which I hope you can help identify (for me and my family) Thanks Steve
