Nice pic. Switzerland is such a beautiful country.
Photographs are like wine, everybody has their own tastes.

This is a picture of the Highspeed InterCity Express: ICE507 for Basel (Switzerland) standing ready in the station of Dortmund (Germany)


In Cologne was one of the few stops of this fine train and there it was coupled to the ICE from Brussels to go together to Basel.



On the return trip with the ICE508 from Basel to Dortmund I succeeded in making a picture of the screen in the train at the moment of its maximum speed of that trip:

Yesterday on the Welsh Highland Railway: The Tasmanian Garratt, built 1909 in Manchester, now back in the UK.

Full story of this locomotive.

Steam locomotives remain the most beautiful trains! Of course they cannot be used for "normal" traffic anymore, but sometimes I wished that Garretts and other steam engines would be common sights again!

I hope to see many more trains!

Fully agree, steam trains have something magical. alanfrombangor, very nice shot of this Garrett. One day I must go back to Wales and watch steam trains there again. It's been more than 30 years ago I visited the Ffestiniog.
Here's some shots from a museum steam railway in the Netherlands (between Boekelo and Haaksbergen in the east)
Some were posted on Dyxum before but some new ones as well.

Aside from steam locomotives another favorite of mine are the Rhätische Bahnen = Raetian Railways in Sout-eastern Switzerland with its beautiful red, narrow gauge trains such as the push-pull train between St.Moritz and Zuoz shown here near Samedan:



and also the express train from St.Moritz to Chur photographed between Celerina and Samedan skirting the mountains:



I wonder what will come next.

In the summer of 1979 5 of my friends and I took a bicycle vacation through northeast Poland. These are some railway pictures I took there on slidefilm at the station of Ruciane Nida. After taking the pictures the film was nearly confiscated by a crude railway employee who claimed we had taken photographs of "strategic installations". Fortunately I didn't give in and managed to hold on to all my shots. I think the strategic importance is rather limited and it's more an area where Fleishmann and Marklin were getting ideas for producing model railway sets.
These are not A-mount pictures but taken with a Leica M2 and an Elmar 50/3.5 and Elmar 90/4. Given the long partnership between Leica and Minolta I hope the Mod's are OK with this.

Soo Line locomotive here is out of service but on display at Fond Du Lac, Wisconsin Lake Winnebago city park. No doubt my grandfather captained this beast often in his 52 year career as a conductor for the Soo Line. He made just one run and no others for his entire career. It was about 225 miles from Sault Ste. Marie Michigan to Pembine, Wisconsin. Imagine the monotony of that same run over and over for 52 years, WOW Grandpa!

I worked in the woods as a young man too and once a partner in a winning bid to cut oak for railroad ties for the Soo Line. That was the hardest work I ever did in my life as we had no machinery of any kind but a pair of dray horses to drag them out. There were no chain saws then either. Grrr.
