    Here is it - the steam engines thread. Please post anything that is related to steam engines here.


    I am a steam engines fan since I was about four years old.

    I am a lousy photographer, I hope that you'll enjoy the show anyway...

    The pictures show a tourist train last Sunday at our railway station. Don't miss to click on the pictures in order to enlarge them...

    So this engine will push the train.

    Are the regular locomotives electric (vs this steam engine)?

    The date of the construction (Baujahr) of the pulling engine was 1959. It was the last steam engine ever built in Germany.

    Yes, Rockyhill.

    I assume those are coal-burners. Is the coal fed automatically into the firebox on those locomotives?
