    Neat to see transport devices we wouldn't normally see. I wonder how many accidents that wall of road signs has caused? :rofl:

    I'm aging myself here, but I lived just northeast of Luzern (in Unterägeri) from '63 to '69, and (as a boy!) visited the transportation museum several times. It's great to see that it's still there. What a hoot to see it again! Thanks, LuvMusic!

    Yeah, that wall is a "trip." :p

    Thanks all for the feedback, I appreciate it. FYI, I don't know if you noticed but the station-wagon is a Bentley! Too bad they don't make those anymore, way cool. Also, the pics of the Bentley and Bentley hood ornament were taken while the vehicle was on a revolving platform, available light with the kit lens.....not too shabby.

    Packing now to go back to Zurich (business). Family is meeting me there after I'm done with the biz. Spend a couple of days in Zurich, then Paris and London. Very excited and I'm sure I'll have some images to share when I get back.

    Cheers!

    Wow, I went to this museum as a child too, probably over 30 years ago now! Alas I haven't been back to Switzerland at all in the last 20+ years, something I must rectify soon! Some nice photos there, thanks for posting them!

    Just got back from 10 days holiday with the family in Switzerland, France and the UK. Went back to Lucerne (one of my wife's favorite places). Make sure you check out the lion monument too....beautiful! Enjoy your trip. Pics from the trip to follow in the next couple of days.....just got home a couple of hours ago, waiting for jet lag to set in! :biggrin:
