Just another creative joke: Mirrored photo of famous Kalte Rinne Viaduct at the Semmering Line in Austria. A freight train with two 1044s crosses the two story high stone brigde on its way southward. You also can see Rax-Mountain in the background and Polleros rock looks like a face.
The famous Semmeringbahn passes Payerbach in front of Rax-Mountain, here on cloudy June 11th 2006, with southbound freight-train with BB class 1042 at the lead at Schwarzaviaduct at Payerbach/Lower Austria.
Austrian Class 1044 with a northbound Intercity on the famous "Cold Gorge Viaduct" on the gorgeous and picturesque Semmering-Railway. The Track across the Semmering is a national "UNESCO World Heritage Monument" and was the first mountain railroad in the world, opened in 1854.
The clocktower tells: About 1 hour late was the very long EuroNight from Rome and Milan (joined at Venice), the only passenger train needing a banker (1142) on Semmering.
Look at the cute little window on the roof of the church! ;)
InterCity from Zagreb passing the village of Breitenstein.
Here you can clearly see how the builder of the Semmering Railway, Carl Ritter von Ghega, planned it to display trains in front of the scenery. On a purely technological point of view a lot of the artificial structures and the route...
Very nice downhill approach of BB 52.4984 and 1116.200 in special livery to Spital am Semmering station for the 150 years Semmering mountain railway celebrations.
The light was spot-on, real April-weather in May! ;)
