231012 on railtour duty at Helmstedt, 12/05/12 (JW)
The Ostsächsische Eisenbahnfreunde e.V. have kindly provided me with information regarding the motive power expected to haul their railtours over the next few months.
Saturday 22nd April 2017
“Mit Ludmilla zum Deutschen Dampflokomotiv-Museum”, 06:10 Löbau to Neuenmarkt-Wirsberg and return, €75. Link. Traction is planned to be 231012 from Wedler & Franz – one of only 11 extant class 231s (ex-Deutsche Reichsbahn class 131) and still a working freight loco. This tour covers some true Ludmilla territory in the form of the Sachsen Magistrale and you can be sure that it will sound great!
231012 gives “a little helping hand” to 03.1010 at Berlin Spandau, 13/05/12 (JW)
