Remarks: Since our photo trains are moving between regular trains, it is necessary that we complete the photo stops within a specified time frame. Therefore, a certain amount of sportsmanship and mutual consideration between the participants is absolutely necessary. Teamwork is the order of the day here.

As you know, Tanago never organises train chases by car. All our customers travel in the train, at the best spots we go off and organise run pasts for you. 

For the protection of all honest participants we ride on the transfer routes with warning vests on the trains!
