Artist's Description

On my way across Belgrade one evening, I went past the rather dilapidated railway engine sheds and spotted two steam engines. I decided to go back at the weekend and photograph them, but one of them had gone! Brain snapped into overdrive and came to the following conclusion: these wonderful machines are still in use! I went back the following day, and sure enough, loco number two was home.

Apparently built in Karlsruhe in 1922, 01-088 is a magnificent specimen. Having snuck through the fencing (OK, it wasn’t much of a feat – the local residents do not regard the mainline into Belgrade Central Station as an impediment to their movements) I was able to snap away happily for an hour or so before some goon appeared and questioned my right to be there. At least, I assume that’s what his shouting and gesticulating was trying to ascertain.
