Proud Earthling

Compact collection of nostalgic clips from this summer, autumn and already winter (please set to 1080p/fullscreen mode):

Video screenshot preview:


- 750 mm Saxon class IV K 99 1542 making a unique guest appearance for three weekends in summer on the Austrian 760 mm narrow gauge Ybbstalbahn Bergstrecke heritage line including trestlework bridges very rare in Central Europe, July 30.

- Vienna Prater Liliputbahn, October 15 (mostly diesel scenes, as I took photos of the steamer).

- 93.1420 of Verein Neue Landesbahn on the Kaltenleutgebner Bahn - an abandoned branch line from Vienna Liesing station through Perchtoldsdorf in Lower Austria to Waldmühle. Runs on November 12 and December 3 supposed to promote revival of the railway. An Amercian school bus connected to the local Christmas market (the intended London Routemaster had had an accident and was out of service).

- 498.104 "Albatros" on its yearly international run from Veselí nad Moravou (Czechia) via Myjava (Slovakia), this time as a big loop from/to Bratislava in one day - so sadly not that many photo opportunities on the picturesque diesel line as the years before. Luckily, wintery conditions prevailed on December 2, and the sun made it through the fog. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to
