    I took a few photos while I am over in Slovenia, quite happy with the night shots.

    Smartphones have come along way in recent years, almost makes me wonder about carrying a proper camera about...

    Great photos, eerie how the trains are looming out of the fog. Are you sure you're not in Transylvania near Dracula's castle? LOL

    No, he was definitely in Pragersko, Slovenia! (I was standing right next to him) :)

    Very moody scenes. That first one is calendar type material!

    What makes it more interesting for you over the pond is that the locomotives are GM GT26 export models, locally known as "Reagans", and very highly thought of as they are rugged and reliable. Our neighbour has spent the last 25 years in the cabs of them!

    They do have a "US" type appearance. Any chance you can get permission to go for a ride in the cab?

    I was promised a ride to Hodos on the Hungarian border and back, but somehow have not got around to it. Must ask Bogdan to arrange it! Can be done by getting official permission, or just ' do it' and save the paperwork. ;)

    One in daylight. Rather like a tunnel motor with open grilles under the radiator

    What sort of sounds do they make? Comparable to what EMD units over here? Or not?

    Yes, my son refers to his mobile phone as a camera that makes phone calls!
