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.
1116 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!
1142 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.
1142 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.
