Note: You see it was raining probably the whole two days, i got some drops on my lens, but I hope you like the picture nevertheless.
One of 3 operating DRG Class 01! Every year there are investet about 2000 working hours. That is worked by the Verein Pacific 01 202 in Switzerland. This loco was last in service with the DB and had Witte smoke deflectors. It has retained its original boiler, but lost the front apron. After its retirement in 1975, the egnine was rebuilt again over 20 years with great initiative and made operational again. It was given a red livery stripe on the tender at the height of the running plate. At the moment (2012) she is in the Dampflokwerke Meiningen and awaits a new boiler.
