RailfotEurop

Welcome to my International railway photographic archive.

I am an expert on European railway geography and operations. I have been photographing railways in Europe and beyond for around 45 years, as I grew up having long and frequent holidays at a family house near Geneva.

I currently use a Canon EOS7D digital camera.

Thank you for looking

Saturday 10/11 Late Eurostar from St Pancras (delayed by failure of set for preceding 08.24)

This lost me 2 hours on my arrival at Orleans for a model railway show as there is a one hour break in the `hourly' Paris – Orleans service on Saturdays

In my two hour gap (13.30 – 15.30 Sats) at Austerlitz there was little activity

26091 1149 Bourges – Paris mixed Aqualys / corail 26003, 26048, 26091 all at buffers 14.00 26015 13.28 Orleans - Paris 7274 15.27 Paris – Orleans

Orleans: 7242 stabled on stock 7318 17.28 Orleans – Paris 26007 17.07 Orleans – Le Croisic

Sunday 11/11 7216 15.27 Orleans – Paris

Paris Austerlitz

Rather more activity on a Sunday afternoon but hard to track carrying a heavy rucksack due to the split nature of the station during the rebuild.

7301 Train 3700 10.18 Teoz Eco Toulouse – Paris 26009 1732 Paris - Bourges 26046 0724 Cerbere - Paris

One highlight of the trip was the superb variety of styles on the 8500/88500s currently used for pilot duties at Austerlitz.

In use: 8638 large cab, large grilles, original end number plate (BB-8638) and (1930's !) SNCF roundel 8549 small cab and grilles revised flush ends with large number, spaghetti logo on sides 8642 large cab large grille revised flush ends with normal size number, spaghetti logo on sides 8645 large cab large grille revised flush ends with normal size number, spaghetti logo on sides 88529 small cab and grilles. Modified version of original end number plate including roundel but with plated numberplate carrying large 88529

Over to Gare de Lyon for the 18.45 iDTGV to Chambery.
