    Jonatan,

    Looks like it must have been a lot of fun. Is that meter gauge?

    Nice pics, it sure does look like fun :7

    It kinda reminds me of the "Puffing Billy Railway" where I'm volunteer and mainly do track work :)

    Default Pictures from my Jädraås trip.

    22nd August I was in Jädraås and spent the whole day running and fireing this little guy. :D

    Began at 08:00 in polishing, cleaning and lubing the engine then we filled him up with coal and water and adjusted the loco brake a bit, next thing I knew I was manning the shovel on the way up and on the first run back down I had the privelge to run the engine.

    So there you have it, my first day at the throttle, I was so exited my eyes almost popped out! :D

    This is all thanks to a special program they have. You call and ask if you can come down and for 1500 SKR you get to spend a whole day as a part of the engine crew onboard one of the smaller engines.

    EDIT: Oh and don't bother about the date on the photos, the camera's a bit funky.
