A little bit insane, but it's fine. We need people like you. It's gonna take some time, but if done properly, it will look glorious. Good luck, anon. You will need it.>>1246720
SNCF will never accept to sell an old passenger carriage or an old locomotive who's not used anymore, because almost all of them contain asbestos. Especially if you are a random dude who come out of nowhere.
Personally, I own a small diesel shunter, but I need to do some work on it before it can move on it's own again.
