Rhijn Boog

In 1889, an order of several locomotives was placed with Sharp Stewart and Company of Glasgow . In a first for Dutch railways, the locomotives had an additional bogie of 2 axles in front of the drive wheels. The original owners were NRS, later to be replaced by HSM. This particular locomotive, number 107, had some damage to it on 8 September 1944, but was subsequently restored at the Tilburg workshop. Today, it is raised high in the museum and I was able to take a shot of its underbelly. The harsh lighting was not the best but the smell of the machine oil was nice. 

 

PS: I had an unbeatable weekend with Astrid and Ginnie at Gorinchem and thereabouts. A fitting finale to my Hollandshire sojourn (heading to Singapore) and there will be some posts from the trip soon.

A wonderful looking mechanical beast. I'm sure you enjoyed being with our two friends Ayush!
I remember walking underneath this beast, Ayush, to see what makes it tick. Amazing stuff.

Needless to say, your time with us here in our backyard is a memory we'll not soon forget. I'm working on all the images as we speak! And all day yesterday I was wishing you travel mercies back to Singapore! Take a rest now.....
It must look amazing in action Ayush, all that metal eh.

Immaculate repairs in Tilburg. Ah, a smooth working machine is a great thing to watch.
Two terrific shots Ayush, I've really enjoyed this series. I'm glad you had a great time with the ladies from Gorinchem, have a safe journey back home.
One for the Steam engine fans Ayush. I bet you had a great time with G&A

We had a great weekend and I do hope you made it home 'in one piece'. We are so glad that we could make it into a grand Finale. Lots of pictures are there for a memory to keep and I LOVE these pictures of the engine...
This is really a great POV and Love to see all the steel and the beautiful colour of Orange.
Taken from these unusual angles you reveal things one would never ever see.
two superb points of view Ayush... you had to lie on your back to frame the first one...
isn't machinery great photographic subjects... if they are over 70 years old they are a marvelous....petersmile
