Fall 2005 Activities

Working on turret sub-level

Following our technical roadmap, after reconditionning the "eclipse" motor, we swith our effort on the diffenrent mechanics.


After unblocking the "eclipse" mechanism, main work to perform on the sub-level is to remove old paint, grease properly and put new paint. Usage of modern elements let us hope that this work will last more than 20 years.

First large scale work done for the past 20 years.

The last day of visit was the occasion for our guests to see how we work for the "ouvrage". They assist to the remounting of the "eclipse motor", a good exemple of what we are performing during our meetings.

Thanks to Jacques and René, our summer visits were a complete success. Many visitors still discuting with the guide even after the visit end (see left photo). A great achievement for us. Results of the poll performed at the end of each visit day will be soon available.
