These next pictures are of a 2004 visit of a 4-6-2 steam engine. Notice the passenger cars look a lot like ours except for the sliding windows. According to Helmet, a few times in the year there are historical rides with these old machines. Normally the steam engines come from the “Deutsches Dampflokomotiv Museum” in Neuenmarkt . You can buy for this “extra tour” a normal Ticket from the DB. The tour takes most about 8 hours. For example from Nuernberg to Wien (Austria) or other cities.
Do not know the photographer but these are pictures of the Diablo Canyon west of Winslow AZ.
