Steam locomotive


Michael S.:
Hi there,

today was not only a nice day with sun and blue sky, but also after a long time a locomotive exhibition. 3 steam locomotives were under steam. Near me is an old railway locomotive station. There was an open house.

a video:

Thanks for posting this, looks like an interesting place.

Superb and impressive steam locos!  The streamliner would have looked like a spaceship to the young loco-spotters of the period when it very first emerged from the loco workshops! Looks pretty remarkable today.   Video, and the depot with the workshop equipment very interesting.   ( I will admit to having some very nice HO gauge Roco and Fleischmann models of these German locomotives, couldn't resist...!)   Dave

Hello Dave,

nice that you liked the video.
Most of the steam locomotives shown are from East Germany. With us, the steam locomotives ran until 1987. They were used for a long time and as a student I had the opportunity to take a few black and white photos with the camera.
