    And the calendar shows september once more, and it's time for the yearly "Day of the steam railway". There was absolutely nothing new to view. We took 5-6 train rides during the evening when the darkness fell.


    Garpen is actually a electric locomotive, used at the station to move wagons.




    The diesel-here, the Gaivoron worked actually the whole day without problems.

    Evening sun.


    Incoming double locomotives.

    Dear Tommi,

    You have an increadible nice way of reporting from events! I'm really impressed with the quality of your images and I clearly see that I have lots to learn from your reports.

    The shots and motifs you have chosen is really great - and it is really hard to pick a favorite. I think in total, that you have captured the essence of the event with great professionalism!

    Thank you both for your comments. I guess that these pictures after all adds some additional aspects to the "story".

    More wonderful Swedish summer delights! As Ralf says we simply always want more and more of these Mariefred pleasures, both on rail and water.

    The Virå is my personal favourite locomotive this time. Photographically I like the two portraits of your video friend in #52. Then up comes a pakarang view of Ejdern …but wait …here come Robert. Impossible to have a favourite in this category, and even when it comes to maritime details there are navigation light, flags, and the S/S Mariefred’s bow competing for my attention. On the train, I'm very much attracted by the lines disappearing into the trees in #57/2 and 3.

    (Anyway, I am not at all convinced by the Duck Island ...surely this must actually be Sea-Troll’s Sommar Stuga and Troll Island hide-away! )

    Beautiful report. Even, if the day is similar from year to year, i have no problem to enjoy these pictures again and again, and at least your motifs are changing.
    Waether was much better this year and we didn't know the blonde conductor girl yet. Thank you for introducing...

    Later:

    Water is needed for operation.


    Tracks of the train, or simply train tracks.


    We're waiting for incoming, locomotive Emsfors.


    The day was a great success for the railway, occasionally all wagons and seats were in use!


    Ready to leave.


    This stretch is actually a quite short one.

    The marching band of the Swedish railroad museum welcomes all visitors.


    The younger generation seems a bit skeptical.


    S/S Robert is always the last boat.




    Happy faces.

    My friend Peter is filming some of the footage that can be seen in a previous post.


    S/S Ejdern is approaching.


    This year she just bumped into the quay, instead of crashing as she did in 2013...

    Small vs big.
    You realize that there ain't too much variation from year to year in this event?

    Here goes the photos from "The day of the steam".


    S/S Robert and S/S Ejdern outbound to meet S/S Mariefred.


    The locomotive Hamra waiting to proceed to the harbor.


    The Virå, you know the locomotive with the Trondheim built boiler that was refurbished in UK is finally operational again. Pretty aye?


    Oil is needed.

    A friend of mine made a small movie from the "Day of the Steam" / "Ångans dag" held last Saturday. I have some photos too to edit, but times a bit short for the moment.



    If you watch carefully you can actually see me passing by in one of the open wagons.
