Tanago - how do we continue ?
In Corona times you casually think that everything is shut down and life is slower. With Tanagit's the other way around at the moment. Postponing and re-organising the tours takes a lot of time and a lot of re-coordination with all parties involved. In addition, so-called "hygiene concepts" for the new start have tbe worked out and implemented. Swe provide all participants with a mouth and nose protection for each event, which you can alspurchase from the TanagShop. This is slowly but surely developing inta top seller in our programme. We hope tmake a fresh start with the Wendelstein Tour and the night photcampaign in the Harz Mountains, sthat we can continue working from tour ttour. We benefit from the fact that we have never organized tours with many participants, but rather with only a few, which we know and can assess well. We expect a final decision on Wendelstein and Harz, whether yes or no, in the next week. Until then we ask for a little patience.
Besides there are alsnew tours, all "around the church tower" tavoid long journeys in airplanes or buses for the time being.
Steam clouds over the Brohl valley on 11 and 12 September 2020
On twdays we drive typical freight and passenger trains with the diesel locomotive D 5 (small V 160) and the steam locomotive 11SM on the scenic Brohl valley railway. As we are not allowed tuse the steam locomotive on the steep section of the Brohl valley railway at the moment (steep track ban of the 11SM), we will tackle this interesting section of the line with the D 5. The container train with the small V 160 on narrow gauge tracks will certainly be a highlight on this tour. Swe will be using the entire Brohl Valley Railway from the harbour up tthe steep track. We are happy tbe able tsupport the Brohl Valley Railway in its commitment even in difficult times.
