Reunion of the oldtimers 182, 353 and 414 (and steam 107)



I was not shure about uploading the picture, but when the Bernina crocodile showed up in Landquart for maintenance, I deceided pro.
On Saturday, the 9th of June, 2018, there will be the largest display of historical trains on RhB ever. It will start approx 1600 in the area of Pontresina and really all rolling stock will be on display and running.
Therefore all historical material is undergoing a maintenance. The 182 was ordered to Landquart for some reasons. Remember, RhB operates on two different power systems. Bernina with 1500 VDC, the mainlines with 11.5 kVAC. Therefore the Bernina crocodile needed to be towed to Landquart.
Nice picture of the historical locomotives, which represent a veritable treasure of the Rhaetian Railway.
As I know, Ge 4/4 182 has been prepared on the underfloor lathe for the 'Mega Bernina Festival' at the Blonay-Chamby Museum in September 2018 (http://blonay-chamby.ch/de/veranstaltung/mega-bernina-festival/) to avoid a derailment on the MOB tracks.
