Fall Steam 07: 4 Plandampf Werratal, October 12


Heavy freight trains on the line between Eisenach and Meiningen pulled by 41 1144, 44 1486, 52 8075 and 52 8079 – day 2, including shunting and steam train meeting at Walldorf an der Werra. The only disappointing scene of the 3-day-event: 52 at the Wartburg view instead of pulling a train coming alone and facing the wrong way.
