Mighty Machine by shenanigan87 Mighty Machine by shenanigan87
Since I don't have any new photos to upload, I thought I'd upload some old ones! This one seemd fitting, as I mentioned how the weekly historic InterCity has been cancelled, which will also put an end to me seeing the 103 at least twice a week. But if I'm honest, the day I took this photo was to be the last time I saw a 103 in action this year, as this train was hauled by other locomotives soon thereafter.

And this photo is also kinda special, as 103 113 had been resurrected from a museum earlier on, with this having been her first deployment after coming out of retirement. Sadly though, some things went colossaly wrong, so it's a small wonder that they even managed to get back here on time. In a sense, it was the first and the last time we got to see 113 out and about, at least for the time being. They've sent her back to the workshop, so hopefully, all the faults were ironed out somehow. But as the weekly historic InterCity is soon going to be history, we won't get to see that much 103-action in the near future...

More of 103 113's first and last run:

Let's hope that we'll still get to see some 103s in the near future...

Its sad that they have ceased the historic IC train... It was an amazing train. Was it because it wasn't much "searched for" by clients?
Well, despite that: I agree completely with you: A mighty machine these beasts are! :D

Good question, I don't really know the reason. The project only came into being due to rolling stock shortages, so perhaps they got that under control again, wanting to use regular trainsets. I hope we'll still get to se 103s hauling TEE special trains, but even on that front, they used engines like 101s... Imagine a dirty 101 in front of Rheingold cars... Just... No!

I think we should get a 120 in this livery pulling that train ;)
I used to own it from Märklin, but I sold it, sadly
