Romania October 2015 (Iasi, Alexandria & Bucharest)

Having done the PTG Southern Greece Alco Tour, as per the previous year, I planned to head out of Bulgaria and into Romania to spend a few days before flying home. There wasn’t much of plan really and initially we were going to spend a day in Iasi followed by a day in Targu Mures Read the Rest…

Greece October 2015 (PTG Southern Greece Tour)

It was a welcome trip and very eagerly anticipated return to Greece to get some more MLW’s in; especially after the PTG trip in 2014 had been so good. As in 2014 the tour started in Sofia, Bulgaria, as OSE have no fresh air stock left to allow it to run solely in Greece so Read the Rest…

Ireland August 2015 (Northern Ireland & Republic of Ireland)

Having scoured the internet to find some decently priced flights for a short trip to Europe I was surprised myself when I ended up booking flights from Doncaster to Dublin!

Switzerland May 2015

This trip was supposed to be a trip to see the Aletsch Glacier, based in Brig, at a warmer time of year. What a disaster that idea turned out to be when I checked the cable car timings the night before we set off and found them to be closed throughout May for maintenance! To Read the Rest…

Europe Multi Country April 2015 (Austria, Slovenia & Croatia)

As an introduction what more can I say; this was my honeymoon! During which we planned to visit Austria (Salzburg, Vienna & Graz), Slovenia (Ljubljana, Bled & Postojna) and finish up in Zagreb, Croatia; the latter being a cheaper and better place to fly home from more than anything else. Of course there would be Read the Rest…

Switzerland December 2014 (RhB – Arosa 100th Anniversary)

This trip had a been very last minute yet I’d still managed to get decent flights really. The only reason for the trip was to cover the RhB’s 100th anniversary of the Chur to Arosa line; for which a special timetable had been put together and issued about 3 weeks before the event. Unfortunately the Read the Rest…

Greece October 2014

The opportunity to sample some good old Greek Alco thrash wasn’t one I could pass up, especially as I didn’t need any leave to do it. It turned out to be the only Alco hauled train that ran on the closed Peloponnese network during 2014 but was unfortunately marred by events that unfolded on the Read the Rest…
