March 2016: A day nedding around Linz

Not got much in the way of trips until next year, so here are a few photos from part of a March trip. As I’ve leaned quite heavily towards Czech and Slovakia this year, decided to put up what was really just under a full a day around Linz largely aiming to cover the 1142s. The challenge of finding them amongst 1144s with classes working each other’s diagrams and Linz liking to take locos off sets and into a whirlpool makes it less straightforward than the diagrams suggest! Few of these are phone photos but seem to have come up alright.

obb-1116-134-linz1116 191 and a rake of Cityshuttle stock had been my transit into the country working the 1802 Ceske Bud to Linz. I was glad to have grabbed some supplies because this stops at every lamppost between the two places!

obb-1142-623-linz1142 623 at Linz prior to working the 0852 to Passau. There was at least one other 1142 kicking around in the old livery as well for a bit of variety

obb-1142-673-wels1142 673 departs Wels with the 0952 Linz – Passau service. The old lights certainly have more character, if a bit PKP style.

obb-2016-076-wels2016 076 sits at Wels with a short set of tanks awaiting to follow up the Passau line

obb-1116-151-linz1116 191 at Linz arriving with the 0534 from Praha hl n, the through trains are formed of Czech aircons and the Taurus will have replaced a CD 362 at Ceske Bud

obb-1142-653-polgarn1142 653 at Polgarn with the 1415 Linz-Summerau. This was about the only loco that didn’t swap turns as the Summerau line isn’t great for moves, it was a unit back off this.

obb-1142-613-marchtrenkI’m sure everyone who has leapt out of Linz has a photo here… 1142 613 at Marchtrenk on the 1521 Linz – Stainach. 1144 253 shortly took me back to Linz.

obb-1142-655-linz1142 655 and 2016 076 have been kicked off shed for the afternoon rush and await respective departure from Linz. Didn’t do either of these so can’t be sure but I think the ‘Tony’ 2016 is on the Grein Bad Kreuzen turn.
