Interesting, I'm aware of the 1500v DC locomotives but not of any others.
Here's one of the newer ones: Rail Feeding 561-03 but when I was working in the area I saw several more, and of older vintage than this example.

I'm just "a" administrator, without the help from the others the site wouldn't survive. What MiPr did today to restore the site I would not have been able to do

And I'm also a big steam train fan (and used to be fireman/driver of them), my other passion besides photography. I think that helped more in seeing the connection between your shots.

Wow! now I'm really impressed. I didn't know you were a train driver, fireman
well I hope you can someday come back out here and we can see one of the Big Boys in person, maybe Kelly too
If you have Trains in your bones You may really like seeing one or 2 of them
There is even in the vicinity the only Cab Forward articulated, which is almost as massive. That would be nice

and you are right. Thank Goodness for MiPr who keeps this great forum going

Speaking of operating a steam engine, I watched this video recently on YouTube and I highly recommend watching it to all that love steam locomotives. It should be very interesting to you Pieter since you have operated a steam engine. I know there will be many differences between this one, Engine 473 of the Durango and Silverton RR in Colorado.   This video is great because for one thing there is no annoying banjo or fiddle music drowning out the sounds of the locomotive and no voice narration, only occasional sub tittles.

Behind the Scenes on a Steam Engine

Kind regards,

Kelly

Thanks Kelly, interesting video and very nice to watch.


Since we don't have a tramway thread and trams run on rails here's a shot from the old center of Antwerp, where the trams still run through the narrow cobblestone streets
