Lithuanian railways (LG - Lietuvos gelezinkeliai) freight diesel locomotive 2M62M-0569 with a special tourist train (PTG TOURS) passes through Lyduvenai bridge, between Tytuvenai - Vidukle stations, Lithuania
Thank You! Well its quite smooth profile at this place. The first train with empty hoppers was rolling with a very low power because second train was blocking his way. When suddenly the black smoke was coming out from the engines of the first train it was clear that the track for him was released and the engineer gave some power to speed up a little bitWhat a video. You hit the trifecta.
The station appears to be at the summit of the grade. Is that true? This could be my favorite train spotting location if I lived in the area.
Those first two diesels deserve the title of "Honorary Steam Locomotives." if I recall correctly, those are the older, Russian built units without Caterpillar engines like the newer units.Yes, good place for railfaning. This is the main freight line. Only bad thing that the highway is near - noise from the automotive transport was very load.
Yes, the first one called 2M62K is with russian engines manufactured by Kolomna factory.Those first two diesels deserve the title of "Honorary Steam Locomotives." if I recall correctly, those are the older, Russian built units without Caterpillar engines like the newer units.
Looking forward to more visits in the fall when the leaves have turned. I'll trade traffic noise for lots of rail traffic.
Oh yes. Still need to wait for one-two weeks and it will be completely covered in Autumn (gold) colors but bad thing is the conflict situation between Belarus and Lithuania, if you heard about it :-( It can end up with a complete decrease of Belarusian cargo export through the sea port of Lithuania, transferring the cargo export through Russia. But most likely it is a propaganda and nothing will happen, I hope.Autumn colors are starting to show.
