Headed off for the August Bank Holiday for a five day trip, principally to Slovenia, but out via Pula and back from Graz for cheap(ish) flight purposes.
Took the Ryanair Stansted-Pula flight early on Thursday for a day on the beach in seriously hot weather, which made a nice change to home, before heading out of Croatia on the hauled 1815 Pula-Maribor portion. This was my first trip behind a HZ 2062 and then SZ 664 and both were suitably impressive! Friday to Sunday were spent in Slovenia covering most of the hauled track and sampling the electrics and more 664s, although we kept falling over the same electrics which was a tad frustrating! Sunday afternoon saw us head to Graz on the 1600 ex Ljubljana to stop the night then a morning raking in some OBB (and GKB) locos before flying back to Stansted again with Ryanair in the afternoon.Without trying too hard the Monday morning produced more locos than three full days in Slovenia!
