Euro Locomotion

Over the Christmas/New Year period I had the chance to get the latest batch of uploading done whilst juggling commitments of work, family and home life.  First thing on the list was to start getting the European locomotive galleries sorted and uploaded.

Alstom built BB 37000, number 37027 (437 027-6) passes north through Hamburg Harburg station in Germany on the 18th of July 2012

Having been abroad twice since the Euro bug hit me after a 20 year absence I only have two locations where I have shot from.  First location was Hamburg Harburg station, like the shot above of ‘Prima’ 37027 powering through the gloom of a July day proving it wasn’t just the UK which had rubbish weather this summer.  The other location is Erstfeld, Switzerland situated at the base of the North ramp of the Gotthard tunnel route.

The only country I have not finished uploading yet is the German locomotive galleries, so far I have uploaded as far as the class 186s but no further.  I am aiming to get the wagon shots from Erstfeld uploaded then go back to the locomotives.  As well shots from Hamburg and Erstfeld there are also some scanned shots from 1991/1992 hidden away in the collections.

155 222-3 stands at Flöha, Germany sometime during July 1992.
