MerzRené Hello again _René and thank you for another kind compliment and YSL ~ Best wishes ~ nick

Thank you Steve, your visit and awards are much appreciated.
I could not find the weight of the loco, but I am guessing somewhere between the 24 tonnes of a Ffestiniog double Fairlie and certainly less than the 62 tonnes of one of the Welsh Highland Garratts. As to the operational reason for it, I have no idea!

Best Wishes Peter

Great snap, regards, edy

Thank you very much Alan, your visit is much appreciated.

I took this while waiting for this train. You have figured out the reason in your comments, yes, I thought exactly the same as you. After photographing all the exotic places, I just got an idea to bring back a normal everyday countryside.

Best Wishes Peter

The life seemed difficult but the house was anchored well! ;) Amitiés, Christian
