August 22nd 2004 another special train to the Semmering mountain
was organized. The steamer 52.4984 was supported by 1020.47 at the
my attention was focussed to the train journey itself, the background
of that event was a historical presentation of scenarios remembering
the age of line construction mid of 19th century (see above).
day was an exception in terms of weather conditions during all 150
year celebration events. It was not really shiny as it would be
typical for mid of August but it also did not rain. After approaching
the Semmering station, the passengers left the train in order to
take part in the presentation. The empty train was transferred to
Muerzzuschlag where some maintenance works were performed.
a highlight I have attached some reproductions of original Semmering
railway construction drawings worked out and signed by Carl Ritter
von Ghega personally.
