Eisenbahn-Fest Staßfurt 1/2 - Steam Train - Züge
Dieser Film ist auch auf meiner DVD "Eisenbahnfeste Staßfurt und Nossen" zu sehen. In Staßfurt fand im Juni 2011 ein wunderschönes Eisenbahnfest statt. Vor Ort waren Dampflokomotiven unterschiedlicher Baureihen, von denen auch einige unter Dampf waren. Man konnte Pendelfahrten auf dem Führerstand machen und auch ein Güterzug fuhr für die Besucher um Foto- und Videoaufnahmen zu ermöglichen. Als Gast kam dann noch ein Sonderzug, der von der ölgefeuerten Lokomotive 41 096, die mit einer imposanten Geräuschkulisse ihrer Brenner imponierte. Dieser Film ist Teil 1 des zweiteiligen Filmes. This video is a part from my DVD "Eisenbahnfeste Staßfurt und Nossen".





Steam Trains in the Hills - Puffing Billy Railway: Australian Trains
The Puffing Billy Railway in Victoria's Dandenong mountains is one of Australia's most well known heritage railways. Operating on the original route built over a century ago and a unique survivor of the Victorian Railway's four experimental 2ft 6in narrow gauge lines, Puffing Billy is now a major tourist attraction with steam trains operating year round. Despite their small size the Na class 2-6-2 tank locomotives are impressive performers and their sound echoes off the hills as they haul trainloads of tourists, families and railfans to Lakeside or Gembrook and return. Meanwhile Beyer Garratt locomotive G42 (originally from the Walhalla and Beech Forest lines) is put to good use on the longer and heavier luncheon train. This video features a typical Saturday at Puffing Billy as filmed on 2 June 2012. 8A ran the first and last service to Lakeside while 14A ran the Gembrook service and G42 ran the lunch train. © 2012 James Brook
