Sat 26 Oct 2013

A perfect clear day from sunrise until an hour before sunset, when some hazy cloud appeared. I started on the München - Salzburg line with a couple of 111 hauled trains near Prien am Chiemsee. The line was closed for engineering work between Traunstein and Freilassing, so there was nothing else on this section, just the 111 hauled REs, terminating at Traunstein for a bus forward.

The rest of the day was spent on the Mühldorf - Freilassing line where EuroCity trains and a few freights, diverted from the main line, were being diesel hauled. Two 232s and two pairs of 218s were doing the dragging with the electric, a 101, 1016 or 1116, still attached. The Ludmillas, 232.209 and 232.240, were the same locos that were out on the previous Saturday. The Rabbits were 218.402+218.426 and 218.404+218.418.

Despite the attractions of long diesel hauled passengers, the star turn was a freight, the EKOL, a northbound intermodal train double headed by Lokomotion’s 212.249 and Bahn Touristik Express’s 217.002. Two other freights were seen, a southbound intermodal with unidentified power and a southbound mixed freight hauled by an ECR 266 with an ÖBB 1016 coupled inside.




A sight you don’t see every day! 212.249 and 217.002 dragged the EKOL northwards near Kirchanschöring on the Freilassing - Mühldorf line.
