    Hotel de Lourdes

    by Luchonda Updated Feb 24, 2005

    The ambience is double faced. One side is the atmosphere of many tourists looking for a good acceptable meal, an ice cream or pancake - a good Belgian beer (Trappist) - On the other side - a location for businessmen to have a quick lunch in this becoming industrial area of Gent-Zeehaven

    Favorite Dish: Flemish "haute cuisine" like "Stovery"-fresh seafood and cakes

    The bridge

    by Luchonda Updated Feb 3, 2008

    Train spotting, a hobby for young and old. My parents gave us a complete set at he occasion of X-mas, it might be 40 years ago. Fleischman and Marklin were the top brands.
    If i still would have this antique toys..... i never will make an offer on E-bay.

    Union Pacific

    I can imagine that the "union pacific" is only to be spotted in the States. But in dreams of old and young, the UP can operate in every hobby room, cellar or ceiling.

    The 25004

    by Luchonda Written Feb 24, 2005

    After retirement by UP, the road's CA-3s were donated, sold, and scrapped. In one of the more flamboyant examples of post-railroad service, UP CA-3 25004 was painted purple and used as a visitor information center near the campground of the Lagoon amusement park in Farmington, Utah. Later (in about 1978) it was moved about 20 miles south to private property in Midvale, Utah. The caboose was still there as late as November 1993, although badly burned and "tagged" with graffiti. As of 1995, it had either been scrapped, or moved to an unknown location.

    Winter in ... Lourdes

    by Luchonda Updated Feb 24, 2005

    Favorite thing: There is not much to tell, and to see in Oostakker. It is just a nice little town, eastern side of Ghent, my hometown. In wintertime it is special to stroll around in "Lourdes" - to relax in a so called "green area" near Ghent

    Fondest memory: A nice little town, some good pubs and restaurants
