I looked it up here as given by Audiodoc.
The engine was an American invention and the photos don't show the other side of the locomotive has the same powertrain.

And, just to recall, this is what normal (?) trains look like

A6700 18135OSS

A pair of class 68 diesels trundle through Bangor with a nuclear flask wagon. This was a regular run to carry spent fuel rods for processing but ceased when the power station stopped operating. Two locomotives were always employed to insure against failure. Since then, a dummy run is made every year to retain route knowledge and maintain the path.

Very nice photo, Pieter!
BTW, my younger brother just passed through the Antwerpen train station this morning and told me how impressed he was, especially with the newer 4 level area. I had not mentioned to him that I had been through the old station a few times when I worked for Pioneer Electronics.
Regards,
Kelly

Great photos, Alan and Pieter!
Really nice light on that light rail train, Pieter!
Alan, I especially lie the last one with the signal tower but they are all super! Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for bringing back good memories Pieter
The light (en the whole DM) was amazing indeed.

Very nice Mestari! Nicely composed with dual steam locomotives! I like the framing with the two old signal semaphores! Lots of black smoke makes me wonder if possibly those are oil burning locomotives? Though coal burners can do that too, and it might be for show for all the railfans watching.

Regards,

Kelly

Makes a fine photo, Mestari. I avoid flying and driving for environmental reasons but enjoy steam haulage, which is admittedly inconsistent. My daughter lives in Poznan so I'm hoping to get up there to see her and visit Wolsztyn during the winter.

Meanwhile, here is some British steam at the East Lancashire Railway's autumn steam gala.

1. Leaving the steam depot we have mainline registered Jubilee class locomotive "Leander", shown on a main line charter train earlier in this thread. The little saddle tank was built for the Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway in 1881.


2. Leander passes under the road bridge and into Bury station.


3. A closer look.


4. The saddle tank again.


5. A Southern Railway design, Battle of Britain class "257 Squadron" was built at Brighton Works and completed in 1948 as one of the first of the batch produced after rail nationalisation. The locomotive was allocated to Dover Marine shed, principally to work the Continental Boat Trains to London.


6. 34072 again.


7. The big engines draw the crowds but I was particularly interested in the smaller examples which are more suited to the line. Number 32 was built for the Manchester Ship Canal Railway in 1903.


8. Nicknamed "jinties", this class was employed on short freight workings. This example entered traffic in 1924 and lasted until 1966, close to the end of steam operation on the national network.


9. 11243 is another Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway product, being built in 1910 but was sold into industrial use in 1931. From 1935 until 1967 it worked at the London works of United Glass Bottle Manufacturing.


10.

Nice series Allan, with a great variety in ages and styles of steam engines.

The big ones are impressive but the small ones too and they're even more cute as well, especially the the little LMS saddle tank, which does seem to have wooden blocks as buffers, great for industrial shunting duty but not too comfortable while hauling a passenger train (if it would be used for that at all)


Something entirely different

The Funicular to Muottas Muragl appearing out of the mist near the mountain station



When it departed again ~20 min later the mist cleared and a lot more of the valley can be seen


Both A7ii + Meyer Görlitz Lydith 30/3.5

This railroad was built in 1907 and at that time it was the longest single section funicular in Switzerland.

Another great set of photos, Alan!

I like 1, 8 and 9 the best but they are all super! Beautiful locomotives! Well, I suppose one might say the little tank engine is cute! TFS!

Regards,

Kelly
