Narrow Gauge Romanticism III

5 - 8 October 2021

Austria Local Railway Romanticism III

In 2020, we have already toured several Austrian narrow gauge railroads with our authentically assembled photo trains and have brought home unique pictures and videos. In addition, we were able to enjoy the friendship and hospitality of the railroads, railwaymen and locals. Therefore, we decided, we will definitely do it again.

For part 3 of the Austrian Narrow Gauge Romanticism, we will go to the Waldviertel for 4 days, where we will have the steam locomotive 399.04 transported back in time to era III.

Tuesday, October 5, 2021: "Local Railway Steam in the Waldviertel".
We will steam with the rebuilt Mh.4 and 4 green passenger cars (without advertising), a tin service car, as well as 1 additional freight car twice on the route from Gmünd to Steinbach. Especially for our event, the locomotive is rebadged to 399.04 and gets red wheels again, as well as the appropriate locomotive signs. Numerous photo stops and mock approaches along the line and on the viaducts. Station scenes will round out the program. Meals for participants (optional) on the train.

Wednesday, October 6, 2021: "Over the Waldviertel Semmering".
We will travel with the Mh.4 and a classic passenger train early in the morning over the Waldviertel Semmering, so that we are in the optimal sun position. The locomotive is renumbered to 399.04 and gets red wheels again for our photo runs. Train: Mh.4 + 3 passenger cars + 1 wood service car, plus 2 more freight cars.  Numerous photo stops and mock approaches along the route. Lunch in Groß Gerungs.

Thursday, October 7, 2021: "Steam freight train".
We will take the Mh.4 with a short local train (2 passenger cars + 1 wood service car) to Alt Nagelberg. In Alt Nagelberg freight cars are added. Also the 2091.09 joins as a photo object.  Depending on the permits, our steam locomotive runs with a freight train on a short section towards Heidenreichstein or with the freight cars towards Litschau.

During the lunch break (in Alt Nagelberg or Litschau) the steam locomotive is turned around in Gmünd, so that we are again chimney ahead on the return trip from Litschau. The locomotive will be specially rebadged 399.04 for this purpose and will also get red wheels again for our photo runs.

Friday, October 8, 2021: "Rolling stock operation in the Waldviertel".
The blood orange 2091.09 is hauling an authentic freight train of the 1980s with a roll car. The roll car is lined up for us this time with a guard car right by the locomotive so that it shows up better in the photos. Extras and historic road vehicles round out the scenes. Kaiserschmarrn lunch in Heidenreichstein.

4-day total program from October 5 - 8, 2021 (without meals and without hotel), per person 980 euros.
At the beginning we do not market participation in single days.

Overnight stay: This time you have to organize the overnight stay yourself, we recommend an overnight stay in Gmünd.
