    Hope you don't mind.
    I was looking at pictures from my 2003 trip back to Denmark, and thought I would post a few pictures I took of an old steamer at the Danish Railway Museum.

    Those are some great pictures! I love seeing those old engines. They really gave them character in those days.

    Nice pictures Jesper. That first picture makes it look like one of Thomas' cousins. Cool. FRED

    It's funny that you mention that. When my six year old son saw the pics, he said it looked like Oliver.

    Interesting, always nice to look at European Steamers, proves just how much difference there was in steam building.

    I love the outside stephenson valve gear. It would be murder to model in the smaller scales though!

    The lump on the back of the steam dome is probably a sand box but don't quote me on it.

    Hey thanks for the link Jon, they have this little locomotive there too http://www.jernbanen.dk/damp_solo.asp?LokID=369.
    Seems like it was in service until '74 and then donated the museum.
    I wonder if Fleischmann or another European maker makes something that can easily be bashed into something like this, it would be fun to have a Danish steamer.
