They still belong to OSE, and some of them are in its museum.

An that's the last one from broad gauge pictures I've seen in Flickr server

It's dedicated to all you but specially to my friend Theo and to all Greek modellers that don't give up in continue modelling that lovely railway you still have.

When Craiova appears in H0, It'll be a real triumph for all us!

They appear under 'Kurbelwelle', so all pictures are done by him

He must have travel to Greece during summer in 1983 and 1986.

I wish you'll enjoy them

Hi,

Judging from the time the pic was taken (late afternoon in summer) it is almost certainly hauling the 410 "Hellas Express" Athens-Dortmund.
Summer time, hence no need for train heating, so a Craiova or an A500 could be used instead of an A450.

Watch the remarkably clean rear of the loco; this could be an early pic from 1982 or 1983. In later times a clean Craiova was an exceedingly rare sight...

Not only clean but with the original radiator grilles before the revision.

it's worth following Rolf Stumpf at flickr, not only for the great photos but also for the narrative captions :!:

Elefterochori departure
It was a balmy 10 degrees on January 4, 1998 when A-558 had to stop at Elefterochori for a single passenger. As the Craiova lifts off in the grade that guy was already taking pictures...
