66 in Snow by ZCochrane 66 in Snow by ZCochrane
I probably won't receive a prize for creative deviation titles today, but that's not really the point, is it? This is the view from the other side of the bridge from which I took the previous picture. Here, DE 6302, a class 66 leased by DLC from MRCE, makes it's way down to Aachen West, with a largely empty container train.

Thank you for the :+fav:!

Snow in Portugal? I wonder, how often does that happen at all? My imagination of Portugal is that it's a country where it's always warm and sunny.

All Winters. Just in a few places, but it exists. Mainly at the Serra da Estrela, the highest mountain we have around here, but in some more places as well.

Very nice shot, I never can seem to get a Class 66 in my sights. That one I took down in London in August was the only one I properly saw... :D

Funny, I'd have expected you'd find a lot more 66s in the UK, here they are kind of a rarity, they're just very frequent around Aachen.

Well, yes, but I was referring to the fact I can never see one while I have my camera to hand. There are loads, you see them all the time, there's just never one when you want one if you now what I mean...

Looks great with the snow dressing up the RofW and trees.

You are much welcome. I am home with a killer head and chest cold and looking at that really put me in a good mood :)

Isn't this a british engine?

Yes, it was originally designed for british railroads (although it's built in Canada), but it has since become very popular in continental europe as well.

Auch ohne Sonne recht Schick, schade das ich hier nicht solche Bilder machen kann... Aber wer weiß, vielleicht schneit es zufällig mal an einem Tag wo ich keine Uni habe, was eher unwahrscheinlich ist...

Danke für das :+fav:! Ja, mit Schnee ist das immer so eine Sache. Ich muss auch sagen, ich hätte den auch hier in Aachen nicht so (relativ) schnell erwartet.
