October 18 2019

One week later I traveled via Linz to Braunau Friday afternoon. A rail replacement bus took me across Inn river to my accommodation in Simbach, Bavaria. I shortly visited the pretty heritage station. Nothing was moving, only 218 430 stabled with a double deck commuter train.

October 19 2019

Saturday morning I walked to Braunau. A female driver just stopped her 5047.083 as R 5944 from Neumarkt-Kallham at the station currently under reconstruction.

German DB 628 571 as Regionalexpress 5858 to Bavarian Freilassing via Salzburg approached to start its journey mainly through Austria.

The old infrastructure still exists at the last semaphore signal domain in Austria on the Mattig valley line featuring photo charters with Romanian-built Prussian class G 10 ÖGEG 657.2770 (Malaxa 1938) that weekend. Next to planned modernization of the line, the steamer also is in need of a major revision - so the event perfectly executed by Alex Loidl from ÖGEG and local railroaders signified two types of farewell.

Through the fog to the northern signal group at Mauerkirchen.
heck1806.jpg




Upon departure to the south at 8:38 a.m. the fog lifted, so a quick sprint across the local soccer pitch to the other side of the tracks...

Departure Mattighofen, new kilometer board and a few more modern details removed.

The first of three photo freights had been extended from Munderfing to Friedburg, partly spreading terror among the local cow population.

In the afternoon, ÖGEG 2050.05 (GM license by Henschel, built in 1959) hauled a passenger train pair - through the soccer goal.

heck1828.jpg





October 18 2008

This gives us opportunity for a trip back in time to see what Garching had to offer eleven years ago...
heck1829.jpg




It was the event "Prussian Steam in Bavaria" featuring ÖGEG G 10 and P 8 steamers, assisted by classic V100 diesel 212 084, here near Mauerberg.
heck1830.jpg





heck1831.jpg




Not the same line, but the Alpine range cannot be missed in this report - departing Tacherting.
heck1832.jpg




Tüssling sadly has been completely modernized since.
heck1833.jpg





heck1834.jpg




But we already know this from 11 years later. :)
