Switzerland: Steam: Rhätische Bahn
Author: Milepost_130

On Sunday, February 17, 2019, the Swiss Rhätische Bahn (Rhaetian Railway) operated a special steam-powered train between Landquart and Disentis / Mustér, Canton of Graubünden. This train was powered by RhB 107 "Albula," 2-8-0 (SLM 1709 / 1906), BhB class G 4/5, meter-gauge.

Great combination of steam, sun, snow and landscape!

Interesting, looks like the heat from the locomotives has melted the snow off the turn table ?

I would bet it was the sun on concrete.  Look at the guy on the turntable....he has short sleeves on in February in Switzerland??

Nice composition on number 2, there Thomas!!!

Lovely pictures of the trains, but the lack of snow in the first image seems odd.
What would be "normal" here for February?
Define normal however you wish.
