    Nice! I was never a big fan of European trains (probably because I’ve never been to Europe!), but this is nice!

  • Many thanks for your comments.

    Nice work Trevor. I had the pleasure of trvelling behind this loco when it came to Australia for our bi-centenary in 1988. Unfortunatly the weather was not good and I did not get any good photos of it but shot some excellent movie film.

  • Thank you very much for your comments,John
