Steam locomotives and their trains - international

The international steam train photo gallery: photographs and pictures of steam locomotives and their trains worldwide with locomotives of the national, private, plant or factory railways, on normal, broad or narrow gauge lines. The well-preserved splendors can be marveled on railway station festivals or on special events and organized tours in tourist or excursion service or as presentation on the museum track of a railroad association. Incredible, but still exists: there are still regular steam locomotives conducted trains in scheduled service. In Germany several narrow gauge companies uses steam locomotives as tourist attraction. Japan offers regular steam on selected routes to improve the touristic traffic in this region. These steam trains are integrated as express trains in the electronic timetable system and can be used with a normal ticket (Japan Rail pass included !), which is also valid for a ride in the dominant motor coach there. Although there are only 3 operational steam locomotives in Sri Lanka, they have their own gallery, because an organized journey will cause a lot of beautiful pictures in a magnificent landscape. Chinese factory and coal mine railways were also spun off and joined together in its China winter steam gallery, because the amount of available photos is simply too intensive to show them in the regular steam locomotive gallery. All other steam locomotives and trains pictures are joined together here in this gallery. The collection of photos is organized by country, sorted by region.







Some Photos have a corresponding Video clip. If you prefer to see motion instead of a HD image then you should switch to Video to photo summary. There you will find videos which are listed in the same sequence as the photos and which are uploaded to the Internet. Please note that as starting sequence only the videos are selected which show steam engine operations, including the national galleries of Germany, Japan, Sri Lanka and China. You are welcome to modify as to your personal preference and then rebuild the overview again. Following on from the picture gallery, there are explanations and requirements. Further pages can be found on the subject of railways and steam locomotives.

No photo gallery? Worth knowing about technology and program
If your operating system doesn’t build the photo gallery, but instead displays a warning that restricts the display of active content, allow the blocked risk. The navigation, the selection menus of the photo gallery as well as the control of the gallery pages are completely written in javascript, which triggers the browser to display this warning. Furthermore, since version 3.0 the entire screen is designed in container technology with a maximum of 5 areas, which are set visible or kept hidden depending on the screen width. Same width also determines how many shots can be shown in a row and automatically adjusts to it when you refresh the screen, similar to your Windows Explorer. Due to the variable structure of the gallery, unfortunately, no headings can be given any longer, which area will be displayed next. The photo gallery itself as one on the 5 subsections is displayed with dynpro subscreen technology, means in the screen encircled container 2 other containers are connected in the top left position. One of these sub-container shows as transparent background image the Polish Ol49-7; the other container contains the text. The wallpaper in the background is fixed with 100% x-axis and 100% y-axis and 3500 pixels, the text container calculates its depth itself. Depending to your screen configuration, one container is displayed deeper than the other, so there it at the bottom an overpowering beyond the edge of one of the containers. In normal cases the wallpaper should finish deeper than the text.

Some patience, please note
The pictures of the photo gallery are extremely compressed to 165 * 110 pixels, thus very fuzzy, but this is the intention. By clicking the frame you will get the actual size with an image resolution of 2250 * 1500 pixels and the detailed data to the picture. You can click the graphics right away, the second screen will open, but it may be that your Internet browser will load all the photos in the gallery before the single photo is activated in the zoom. Also note that your computer may issue a warning about active elements in the background. Without activation and during charging, the zoom screen remains black, which is not a program error, it is just the background color. Please be patient. How the photo description is structured and which possibilities you have in operating the system, is shortly summarized in the guidance to the photo.
