DB 233-572 by Tigrar DB 233-572 by Tigrar
Just imagine:
You (a railfan) sit on the stairs of a small footbridge across a railline, Happy about a tripple of 610s and a duo of 648s which shot along the rails minutes before and then you hear some distant woomwoomwoomwoomwoom At least most railfans in germany will jump up and run to the best possible photospot in reach now, IT's coming! Ludmilla! The last diesel saurus on german tracks! If it comes closer everything starts to vibrate, just as the WOOMWOOMWOOM gets louder and louder. Seconds after this shot I tried to stand right aboth it, and the engineer accelerated :D Single 232 and a whole load of srapped metal, that's already boah! =)
But like at many other places, the diesel paradise Pegnitztal will vanish, together with it's WOOMing 232s, 233s and it's sleek swinging 610s. Then we got another line with electric whires, Talent 2 and 185s. Screw you, diesel price.



Eisener Steg, Hersbruck rechts der Pegnitz, bavaria, germany. Aug 2012.

Thanks in advance for +favs!

Should you want something relatively similar in noise, check the Romanian diesel Class 63 and 65, they are the refurbished class 60 and 62 and are awesome.

The class 62 is not so impressive, class 63 is the refurbished class 62 and trust me, it's got an awesome noise. Also, class 65 is the refurbished class 60, the only difference between class 63 and 65 being the maximum speed (120 km/h for 63's, 100 km/h for 65's)

My sympathy is with you, even though these are the beasts that destroyed my beloved steam. How ever now I do feel a very similar feeling seeing not one but now a second generation of locomotive surrender, to time and technology.

I don't think Diesel locos will surrender that soon. But sooner or later you're probably right. Sadly.

Steams still there, a tiny fire, more than a sprk, less than a blaze though
