Welcome to my website! Please settle in and look around, scroll down for newest posts or use the top and side menus to navigate – you’ll find plenty record phots from my nedding around, mainly, continental Europe. Captions are a bit variable so feel free to leave a message if further gen would be of use and I’ll do my best… Cheers, Prost or Nazdráve!
Set out to open the book in NS, even more hit and miss than expected! 2 x 1200s on ski trains were a nice bonus though.
Captions actually provided on the phots this time!
Very quick trip courtesy of some cheap flights to Cologne to get some engines in the book for the year – most of you can probably guess what locations feature in the moves book!
Weeks Austrian trip harvesting OBB electrics, mainly around Vienna and then Graz to have a day out covering the Citadella and GySev 651 turn in Hungary for a blast of diesels more interesting than 2016s!
Three day trip, flew to Basle on Friday but straight into Germany via Basle Bad to hit Freiburg which should have all been new, and was until Stuttgart’s 146201 turned up. On Saturday elected to stick with plan and head east to the Gaubahn hoping to pick up a 181 and maybe a 115 – my luck was in and 115383 dropped me onto 181209 then a top prize of 115114! Then into Switzerland for a brief first visit to fly back picking up locos along the way…

A few phots from September 2014’s Ceska Trebova Depot Open Day – loads on site! We weren’t too sure what to expect and really went to scoop the 111 in for cab rides but it was well worth going. With two roundhouses, another display around the main turntable and then the demics there must have been the best part of 100 locos knocking about. It was completely help yourself to cabs etc although clambering in and out without spilling beer was a bit problematic!
Overdue full week in Czech Republic, these are the ‘bash’ photos. Also went round Ceska Trebova Depot Open Day which will follow later in a seperate gallery as there are enough here to be getting on with!
