Austria: Autumn Steyr valley railroad
In spring 2022 it has not worked out due to corona, so we have moved our Steyr valley railroad tour in the fall.
Autumn in the Steyr Valley, a photographic dream - in addition steam locomotives in front of authentic passenger and freight trains or Mixed Train of era III. This time we offer 3 locomotives, with 298.102, 498.04 as well as the recently repaired 699.103 will be used. With a bit of luck, 298.53 will be ready for action again, it will then "slip" into the place of 298.102, so that the tour is also worthwhile for participants who have already visited the Steyr valley railroad with us.
