Here is a bit of history about the engine: http://web.archive.org/web/20021031190708/www.hesston.org/Hesston_Web/orenstein_and_koppel.htm

I heard mention that it used to travel in East Germany up to the Baltic Sea. As I have actually seen the Baltic Sea, makes the engine a bit more special.

They rejected my steam engine, too!

pianoman4Jesus on September 14, 2008

BollaBorsca, Panoramio seems to have accepted this one. The only Hesston photo they still have rejected was:


They did reject this one at first. However I went through the rejected photo appeal process and then they accepted it.

Beautiful this old steam engine train. I see that you like very much railways. Are you perhaps a railwayman?

Cheers, Marilyn

Greetings Marilyn- Not a railwayman, but my grandfather drove steam engines at an amusement park back in the 1920's, so trains are thus in the blood. Thanks for your kind comment!

Thanks for the direct link, walterswelt. So Orenstein & Koppel was around to build diesel engines? Interesting!

Here some other Orenstein & Koppel: diesel 1 and diesel 2.

Here is "my steam"!

Kind regards, Burkhard

Nice locomotive! I have seen a similar one two weeks ago in a museum from Sighisoara (Romania). Maximum speed: 30 km/h!:)
