Maybe it's because I live in one, but I couldn't stop laughing for several minutes :icon_thumbsup2:

BTW what a fine looking layout. What is it? I don't believe I've seen it before, at least not from this angle.

The filming of the french remake of the bridge of the river kwai went off with a bad start with the set builders on strike so no bridge was actually built.
