Dampflok I

After photographing the Rhätische Bahn's vintage steam train last year as it
crossed the Rheinbrücke at Reichenau, this year I had the pleasure of riding it.

On a splendid autumn Sunday in early October, along with F-C friends Beatrice and Ruadi, I rode (and photo-
graphed!) the steam train pulled by the lovingly maintained No.107 "Albula" steam locomotive, captured here.

I do not normally include links to music, preferring to let the viewer conjure up his or her "soundtrack" to an image.
I happily make an exception here, with composer and steam train lover Eduard Strauss' wonderful Bahn Frei Polka,
in my forever-favorite recording by Willi Boskovsky and the Johann Strauss Orchestra of Vienna.

Alle einsteigen, und ich wünsche eine angenehme (musikalische) Reise!
