There are only a few days left until the first 2011 photo tour and we expect to have snow up in the mountains, on the forestry line.
The groups are complete, even the one for September, and all the preparations are done. Last week was a little warmer in Romania, but now the winter time is back with snow especially up in the mountains.
This post’s picture was taken by photographer Michael Schneeberger on CFF Viseu de Sus last week. Mocanita “Mariuta” (1910 Orenstein&Koppel) was used as backup locomotive when the train diesel engine was broken down in Novat. The steam locomotive was then used to pull up the empty wagons from Delta Novat to Cozia station. On the way back mocanita brought to Viseu the loaded production train.
