From now I will be trying to do a few slideshows now and again, mainly photos, but also multimedia with sounds and a few videos inbetween.
This slideshow features a trip by "modern Orient-Express" Vienna - Budapest - Belgrade - Nis - Sofia - Istanbul ("Dacia" - "Beograd" - "Balkan" - "Bosfor" - Express trains) as it was possible in November 2008 and a week-long steam charter through Turkey in September 2013 with TCDD 56548 (ex German Kriegslok 52 7429).
