Steam engines anyone?


I’m not a train buff but was interested to see these steam engines sitting in the sidings at Wien Heiligenstadt railway station yesterday. I have no idea if they are still in use or whether they are particularly interesting engines, for those who know about these things, but there is something romantic about steam trains which you just don’t get looking at their modern successors.

I was also struck by the thought ‘do we have trainspotters in Austria or are they one of those peculiarly British phenomena?’
