Skoda

Posted in Banovici, Bosnia by folkestonejack on April 5, 2010

A visit to the interchange yard at Banovici in Bosnia gave us the spectacle of Skoda built steam locomotive 19-12 (0-6-0T) shunting. The Skoda is now only maintained as a backup to their diesel but that’s still quite impressive in the 21st century. A French class 144R (0-8-0T) was dumped out of use in a nearby siding.

The sun held out for as long as it needed to… disappearing just after we got our final shots. The heavens opened shortly after and the rain continued all night.
