The French Railway Museum at Mulhouse

On my bucket list has always been the National French Railway Museum at Mulhouse, near the Swiss border. In July 2012 (on Bastille Day, as it happened!) I was fortunate to spend a whole day at this museum, with my new EOS600D camera1, and I gave it a good workout. Over 350 photos of assorted railway droolery resulted, so it seems appropriate to devote a whole series of pages to this museum.
