SWABIAN STEAM TRAIN

We could hear the Schwäbische Waldbahn begin to chug – the whistle sounded, and thick, black steam freed itself from the fiery chamber. We popped our beers and clinked our bottles, and were happily on our way – chugging down the rails on which the historic steam train runs.

At more than 100 years old, this Swabian steam train is practically a locomotive museum – running only a handful of days in the year through the Swabian forests, and past villages of spectators who await its rare début. We had the pleasure of taking a trip this past June, and I took advantage of our time aboard by photographing the vintage train’s every detail.
