It is an interesting train that somehow didn't that look German to me. It is a train of the Luxemburgish company CFL type CFL 2300. They have a line going into Germany from Luxembourg. Interesting.

Thanks Kelly and Addy!

The water was a nice bonus to capture the reflection indeed!

I am afraid I can't help you to clarify Addy

"Black Cat" That engine has seen a lot.

What I don't understand: it was build in Hungary (Budapest) and "For decades, it operated as a passenger and freight carrier all across the region." How did it get a Croatian name? In Hungary they speak Hungarian, not Croation or a Slavic language in general. Google was not my friend

Anyway, good picture, TFS.

She's a beautiful Fred!

Thank you for sharing the locomotive's history. An interesting eastern European design that I'm not at all familiar with. A shame that it is sitting outside in the weather and not in a museum or otherwise undercover. I like that you have captured the locomotive's reflection in the pool of water in the foreground. Very nice. TFS!

Regards,

Kelly

The "Crna Katica" Train Memorial


Steam locomotive built in 1891, under the registration "125-052". Manufactured by the Hungarian Railways company in Budapest. Now part of the The "Crna Katica" Train Memorial in Zagreb, Croatia, combined with a holocaust memorial.
Some history about this engine can be found here

Thanks Kelly. A couple more vintage diesels visited Bangor yesterday, on the national network rather than a heritage line. 37175 was built in 1963 with a design life of 20 years but is still at work piloting the ultrasonic test train.

Photographed with a vintage A99/KM28-75 f2.8 combination.

Another great set, Alan! I think I like No. 2 the most. Love the dog's drinking trough, though I don't think I would want puppy actually driving from that with all the rust and debris. Is that tooth bruch in there? Also like the trollies on display! Super photos as usual! TFS!   

Regards,

Kelly

Yesterday at the Llangollen Railway branch line gala, featuring a leisurely timetable evocative of long closed branch lines.

1. Arriving at the Corwen terminus is an unlikely pairing of a shunting locomotive and a diesel that worked in Scotland.


2. Pannier tank 7754 and freight engine 3802 are of a type that would have worked this line. Our train waited 20 minutes at the next station to let them proceed to Corwen.


3. Arriving at Glyndyfrdwy, 68067 was built in 1943 by Hudswell Clarke for the Ministry of Defence. It then entered service as WD75091 and in 1950 was bought by the National Coal Board. Some of the class were bought for the national network but not this example which masquerades as a long scrapped example which worked in eastern Englend.


4. The Scottish diesel at the western end.


5. Display of vintage luggage trollies, from before suitcases developed their own wheels.


6. Class 108 diesel multiple unit.


7. Dog's drinking vessel, sponsored by Hudsons soap.

According to that search engine the first Cab Forward designed engines were built in 1908 and the last ones in 1944 and active until 1958
not a short working life IMO

I was referring to 4294, not the design.

Yes glefebvre thats the one

Southern Pacific Cab Forward




My favorite cab forward photo
Little kid with Big eyes playing peek a boo. I guess we can all relate___ha ha

peek a boo




Hey doc, I thought that engine 2926 looked familiar. I photographed its sister engine 2925 at the Sacramento museum and further back on the same track is engine 5021 which looks to be the same class
2925___ of course none of these are functional, the sun was on the other side, best I could do



and I had to post this photo of 2925, just because

NOT MY PHOTO!

These engines are on the boardwalk on the river. The American River, and on the other side is the town of West Sacramento, where the baseball Athletics are going to play their games. On a field that all it has is a diamond and some seats, there are probably better High School fields. The ownership would rather play there than in a new baseball stadium in Oakland.

It's hard to believe three world class championship teams have gotten the hell out of Oakland California. Because of what a hell hole it has become, or as our former President used a more accurate description.

So I live only a few hours from Albuquerque, Four Corners area. live in the mountains not a desert, one could say high mountains. Seeing 2926 come alive sounds intriguing, just, after seeing Big Boy and the Legend, the two greatest steam engines in America, not sure how I would feel. Have to ponder that. Although seeing any steam engine running is Kool. Specially something that massive.

Those photos in your link, are any your photos, how does that work?

Couldn't help noticing 2 things about the Cab Forward, the interesting plumbing and the relatively smaller drive wheels. Found this less known new search engine guess it's kinda AI. Says it can answer any questions. Just ask. The great thing about it, No adds, doesn't divert you here there and everywhere. Only straight to a perfect answer.

I asked it this non tech question about the wheels of a cab forward and got this:

((The cab forward steam locomotives had smaller driving wheels compared to the Union Pacific Big Boy locomotives.
The cab forward design, pioneered by the Southern Pacific Railroad, placed the crew cab at the front of the locomotive to avoid fumes in tunnels and snow sheds. This design constraint limited the size of the driving wheels.))
Wow

((the cab forward steam locomotives built by the Southern Pacific Railroad typically had driving wheels around 63-64 inches in diameter.
Specifically:
The early MC class 2-8-8-2 cab forwards built in 1908-1909 had 57-inch driving wheels.

The later AC class 4-8-8-2 cab forward locomotives, built from 1928-1944, had 63.5-inch driving wheels. This was the most numerous and powerful class of cab forwards.

The AM class 4-6-6-2 cab forwards from the 1920s had 63-inch drivers.))

Went on and on answering every possible question on its own
