22 – 25 May 2023

Austria: Mariazell Railway

It took us a long time to get permission for photo trips on the Mariazellerbahn with the red-beige 1099.14. Since 2019, we have then been allowed to carry out several trips on the Mariazellerbahn with 1099.14 in different lettering variants.

For May 2023, we offer a special treat for all fans of the narrow-gauge 1099 on 4 days. We go with no less than 2 locomotives of the BR 1099 on each day of the Tanago tour on the mountain route. 1099.14 and the newly built 1099.11 will haul our trains. Every day we offer a different train composition. The locomotives will be equipped with our authentic locomotive signs.

All participants will ride in the train, as usual at Tanago. On the transfer routes, we will "decorate" the locomotive and cars with high-visibility vests, because non-paying onlookers are not welcome on our trips.

Arrival of the participants to the tour hotel in Winterbach.

Monday, May 22 to Thursday, May 25, 2023
From Winterbach, we will travel each day with both locomotives and different train sets on the mountain route of the Mariazellerbahn. We use the days to travel the mountain route, up to Mariazell. At the most beautiful places of the railroad we get out and take photos. Every day we drive to different photo spots, in order to "work off" as many motives as possible on the mountain route of the Mariazellerbahn. In the evening we will be back in Winterbach, where we will spend the night. After the tour you have the possibility to stay one more night in Winterbach.  

We will send the detailed tour program to the participants after receiving the booking,
