This may i made photos during a ride with the steam train to mariazell. Although there are many perfect photo spots all over the track, i decided to get on board of the train instead of hunting it by car - to continue that wonderful nostalgic service in the future, the most important thing the Club Mh.6 needs are satisfied passengers - well done so far. The schedule offered plenty of time to take pictures of the steam locomotive Mh.6 built in 1908 and its friendly and professional volunteers who operate the train. A "thank you" to every single member for making that day special.
The train was pulled between Ober Grafendorf and Mariazell by the steam locomotive Mh.6, built in 1908. Between St. Pölten and Ober Grafendorf the train was pulled by the 1099.013 which is only about 6 years younger and one of the oldest electric locomotives of the world in regular service.
The Mh.6 is maintained and operated voluntarily by the Eisenbahnclub Mh.6 in Ober Grafendorf.
