Day 2 of my OSITM week, and as I promised yesterday there will be trains today. Lots of trains. Only trains ...
One part of the pics is made with rivit's German 1950s train. I do like that trainset, it gives me the warm feeling of the German railways of my childhood in the seventies. Only things he should adjust: The 023 were built in the 1950s, the 041 was reboilered in the 1950s, the 110 and the 140 where from 1956 to 1972 and the passenger cars were reconstructed from older material in the late 1950s / early 1960s. So the trainset represents more the trains of the 1960s and 1970s. In that time the E40/140 was green, it became red in the 1990s. But these are really minor buggers.
The other trains set is the Region Runner with Kenworth's wonderful doubledecker cars which represents the modern railways of today.
That's why I took basically the same pictures which the old and the new train giving you a feeling of the things that changed during the time. Have fun!
OSITM Special 1: Trains, trains, trains!
Today there's lot of pictures and only a few words to say!
Well, we all know these, don't we? Unlike the freight train diesel loco which I still like after all these years the passenger train is just ... well ... in dire need of being replaced!
At the Galgenbergtunnel (Gallows hill tunnel).
Unfortunately I haven't found the time to use the tunnel Yan_077 gave me the link ...
The other side of the tunnel before the track was electrifed (and before I tidied up the textures )
You might know this one from the picture competition!
Methinks quite a few of you were witing for some pictures of trains on the Mühlbach bridge - here they are!
Once I caught even two trains crossing the bridge at the same time!
That's it for today, in the next update we will to another map. Hope you like your today'S daily dose of Papa Nardo's Oeuvre!
See you tomorrow!
