    There are a lots of preserved well maintained steam locomotives in Czhech Republic and the interests is huge. Here a video from "Steam Weekend" May 2018 shows several great engines!

    Great picture of the lovely John CSD 475! You are not the only one taking pictures I see;)
    I should like to see 'Albatros' 498.0 operational in the future (as well as 387.0 and 486.0:D) Another interesting project is the restoration of one of the two cylindered class 399.0.

    kind regards,
    Knut

    I have to arrest myself. The CSD class 486.006 'green Anton' actually is operational these days. It has now been repainted to a darker green (much better in my view) rather than the very sharp green it had previously.

    A picture:) https://www.k-report.net/discus/obrazky/17/50/1261750.jpg
