The annual Great Steam Train race through Sydney's inner western suburbs. The year it was Garratt 6029 against the recently restored "Nanny" 3526. Unfortunately it was raining again this year. An unfortunate slowing of 3526 and train near Ashfield reduced the "racing" well before the scheduled finish at Strathfield.
From the family film collection of Kurt Jensen is this collection of scenes of the Illinois Central Railroad at the end of the steam era. The video opens at the passenger station in Carbondale, Illinois, before accompanying engineer Frank Baumgartner to work at the engine terminal in Centralia. Next, we see a 2-8-2 Mikado running light in the Carbondale yard before 2-10-2 #2710 passes light. Then it's north of Carbondale as #2702 hurries by with southbound coal and ballast loads before we pace #2710 to DeSoto. The video ends as we view several locomotives parked out of service by the Carbondale turntable. Two of the dead locomotives were seen in operation earlier in the video.
Scenic round trip by steam train up the Brienzer Rothorn. Cab ride from Brienz to Rothorn. Cog railway Brienz Rothorn Bahn. Switzerland.
GM G12 7707 in Norway similar to the New Zealand Da class, great sound turn up the volume. This was flimed in Sweden in 1998. The loco was at that time owned by the Norwegian GM group. Today it is owned by the Swedish state rail museum in Gavle. The SJ group bought this loco in 1956 and called it T42 205. they kept this paint scheme for some 10 years and then re-painted it in brown with beigi stripes. In 1983 SJ group sold it to the GM group and the re-painted it back in the old demo paint scheme. I stand corrected on the previous details that I wrote. Updated information care of Fredrikgaard. Thanks for that.
