Öchsle steam locomotive Tanago Railfan Tours

Autumn Steyr valley railways

30 September – 2 October 2023

How many times have we been to the Steyr Valley with Tanago now? We started in January 2016 with a legendary winter steam, after we had renumbered the freight cars to epoch 3 with clammy fingers in sub-zero temperatures. Then followed 7 more photo events, so that we now come with the last Tanago photo tour on number 9. After that we will go on a long distance trip to Eritrea, to the steam at the red sea and then I personally will stop after 13 years of Tanago. Possibly it goes however further, the discussions in addition with prospective customers run ...

Reason enough to let it steam once again at a farewell event in the Steyr Valley and to say goodbye. It was great to be with you!

Autumn in the Steyr Valley, a photographic dream - and in addition steam locomotives in front of authentic passenger and freight trains or GmP. This time we offer 4 locomotives on 3 days, with 699.103, 298.102, 498.04 and the recently repaired 298.53 will be used. With a bit of luck, another locomotive will be ready for action, we will keep it as a "surprise" to surprise all participants with it.
