Prussian compartment coach C 1254 has arrived in Dresden-Altstadt
Late at night on November 11, 2014, compartment coach C 1254 of the former Royal Prussian States Railways arrived in Dresden-Altstadt. The owner, Verkehrsmusuem Dresden, has arranged its transfer. In its previous long-term place of exhibition on the island of Usedom, it could not be supervised and maintained in an appropriate way any longer. After the transfer train, which was operated by PRESS (locomotive: 293 046), had arrived in Dresden-Altstadt, members of our association IG Bw Dresden-Altstadt e.V. performed the shunting service into roundhouse #4. This carriage will be displayed during special events and presentations only.
E 77 10 hauled scheduled ITL freight trains on Sept. 20 and Oct. 11, 2014
On September 20th and on October 11th, 2014, E 77 10 hauled a scheduled freight train operated by ITL between Dresden-Friedrichstadt/GVZ and Freiberg i. Sa. and back. However, it could not be used as a single locomotive for technical reasons related to the steeply inclined section between Tharandt and Klingenberg-Colmnitz. On both occasions, the double header was led by E 77 10 as the first engine and a regular electric engine of ITL took over the major part of forwarding as the second engine. As well for technical reasons, E 77 10 could not be placed as a single leading engine and the "modern" engine be positioned as a banker.
We are very grateful to all railroad staff involved and - above all - to ITL that made the dreams come true!!
Please feel free to enjoy some impressions:
