Mladejov steam Tanago Railfan tours

Czech Republic:
Supporting locomotive in Mladejov

21. und 22. Oktober 2023

We have already visited the quaint, former industrial railway in Mladejov several times. This year we offer the opportunity to experience Mladejov under steam with the support locomotive 5 and CKD BS 80. We want to use these on the approx. 8 km long industrial railway in front of authentic tipper lorry and goods trains. The 600mm industrial railway of Mladejov was used to supply the fireclay works with clay and coal, which were transported in tipper lorries.

On Saturday morning and afternoon, and on Sunday morning, we will be pulling one photo train each with the support locomotive and the CKD BS 80. The photographers will travel in front in the specially chartered diesel train. We stop at the most beautiful places along the line and let the steam-guided goods train pass us by. On Saturday evening, you can expect night shots in the originally preserved steam locomotive depot or in front of the backdrop of the former fireclay factory, illuminated with our professional lighting equipment. Unique shots in a beautiful autumn landscape on the wooded and hilly industrial railway of Mladejov! Especially for this event, we have the track cut free of grass and overgrowth and freight wagons loaded with wood.

As a special extra we offer the arrival and departure with our tour buses from/to Berlin. As we will be travelling via Dresden, it is possible to get on/off there. All seats in the tour bus are only available in combination with an overnight stay in a good guesthouse in Moravska Trebova from Friday to Sunday in a single room.
