Seller's Description

B & R DVD Volume 198 - Austrian Steam Spectacular

I quote from the box:

‘Following the demise of steam on BR in 1968, enthusiasts sought out steam in other ways and many visited Austria where their passion could be combined with Alpine scenery. Even as late as 1972, there were still hundreds of steam locomotives in OBB (Austrian Federal Railways) stock.

Steam was concentrated in the east, including Vienna, Graz, and Linz. Numerically the largest were the German 'Kreigslok' (War Engine) Class 52 2-10-0s (the equivalent to the British WD classes) with their 'Kabinetender' (Cabin Tender) Other designs seen include the Class 50 (predecessor of Class 52) and the Class 152 (bar-framed Class 52).

We see steam on passenger services around Vienna with Class 77 4-6-2Ts, the big Class 78 4-6-4Ts, and the rugged Class 93 2-8-2TS.

Unfamiliar to British rail fans were the lightweight 2-4-2Ts or 'Dampftriebwagens' (Steam Railcars) which included an integral guard's and baggage compartment.

Austria was birthplace of the Giesel Ejector and 450 had been fitted to OBB classes by 1961. A highlight was the Erzberg rack railway. This spectacular line, seen in summer and winter, was home to massive 0-12-0 and 2-12-2 locomotives working ore trains.

The GKB system (Graz Koflacher Eisenbahn) included 2 cylinder compound 2-8-0s and a 103 years-old 0-6-0.

Austria had borders with Eastern Bloc countries and we see locomotives from Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia and Hungary plus an inter-city DMU from East Germany.

It was refreshing to see some Austrian steam narrow-gauge systems working for a living and not just tourist lines. We visit the Steyr Valley Railway from Garsten with its 0-6-2Ts, and the lines around Gmund with 0-8-0 articulated-tender engines and transporter wagons.

There were also old and interesting electric locomotives including the Mariazellbahn Railway whose locomotives dated from 1911, and the impressive 'Crocodiles' with their long noses reminiscent of the snout of a crocodile.’

Running time is approx 60 minutes.

I am not sure about the compatibility of overseas DVD players with UK DVDs.  If this is being purchased for overseas use, please ensure that your equipment is compatible.

The DVD will be posted in a good quality padded envelope.

If you buy multiple items I will adjust the postage and packing costs appropriately.

From UK buyers I accept payment by PayPal, UK Cheque or Postal Order. Non-UK buyers must pay by PayPal.
