Winter steam at Steyr Valley

4th - 6th January 2020

Austria: Winter steam in the Steyr Valley

Austria: Winter steam in the Steyr Valley

After our successful events on the Steyrtalbahn in the past years, we would like to resume the winter campaign on January 4 to 6, 2020. We mark the freight trains and the locomotives in ÖBB epoch 3 and let it steam properly on three days. On saturday we offer night shots with fireworks.

We have set ourselves a lot of goals: the plan is 498.04 (Uh 4) and 298.102, as well as the corresponding freight and passenger wagons in original Era III to change numbers and thus authentic trains in the Steyr Valley to steam. For this purpose we let several trains run through the Steyr valley - based on original photos. In addition there are several scenes with extras and some special treats, which we don't want to reveal yet. Let us surprise you.

As special highlights we let a loaded timber train (we had a wagon specially reconditioned for our winter steam campaign 2018) and a really long freight train run on the Steyrtalbahn.

Tour Itinerary:

4 January 2020, Saturday:
We start our tour program with an authentic timber train, covered by 298,102 chimney ahead of us from Grünburg to Steyr LLB. There we turn on the turntable to steam the chimney back to Grünburg. After sunset we offer night shots with 298.102 and the already heated 498.04 in front of their trains. In addition there are fireworks as an ideal background for your night shots.

5 January 2020, Sunday:
Today we start with loco 498.04 and a freight train in Grünburg. First we steam tender first to Steyr Lokalbahnhof. The freight train will consist of at least 7 freight cars. From Steyr we steam chimney first to several loading points and take up new wagons. Thus the train has from station to station another car in the train and we get pictures with different train length. Thus we reach Grünburg in the late afternoon, where our journey ends.

6 January 2020, Monday:
At the end of the event, the participants drive ahead in the mixed train, followed by a steam-powered freight train. We get off at the most beautiful photo spots of the Steyrtalbahn and let both trains pass us.

End of the event.
