18 and 19 June 2021

Germany: An evening at the Chemnitz-Hilbersdorf depot

Already in October 2017 we were able to take very successful night shots of 50 3648 and other cold-stored steam locomotives in the evening at the depot Chemnitz-Hilberdorf. Starting at 8pm (sunset is at 9:25pm) we will arrange different scenes with 50 3648 under steam.
To complete the whole thing, we will bring our reanactors who will enliven the individual scenes as locomotive crew. Expected end of the event is around 24 o'clock.

We meet at 20:00 at the entrance gate of the Chemnitz- Hilbersdorf depot.  Sunset is at 21:25, so we have enough time before to put our lights in the right position and to get our reanactors in position. We will take pictures of the replenishment of supplies, the lubrication and the preparation of the locomotive for the night's rest with the steamed Reko 50 3648, as well as the other locomotives of the depot. We will "breathe life" into these machines to create as much shed atmosphere as possible. On this evening the depot is closed for other visitors, so that we can take photos and videos without disturbing persons in the picture. Use this opportunity, it will not come back so quickly.
To complete the whole thing we have our reanactor crew with us, who will enliven the individual scenes dressed as locomotive crew. Ends at about 24:00.
