    Of the preserved french locomotives class 141R, I think no.1244 are the best maintained and shiny one! ,(not that strange maybe since it`s in swiss ownership.) ;)It also has the livery I like best:Happy:

    Here is an excellent made study of this magnificent engine!

    Thanks for posting.
    A rival for 35028 and 45596 for the polished motion.

    Cheers, Neil

    Memories of a railtour over 40 years ago before 1244 was polished to perfection.

    Afternoon All,

    The next installment of my 1997 video of 141R1244 on the Gotthard Line has now been published on YouTube. Here's the link for those interested to see it:



    Hope it's of interest.

    Afternoon All,

    The final part of my video featuring 141R1244 in 1997 is now on YouTube; the loco is seen departing from Airolo with an Re 4/4/ II as a pilot though the Gotthard Tunnel, and then pounding through Flüelen at speed on its way home to Brugg. Hope it's of interest:



    TTFN,

    Ron.
