Meeting up with the locals

Next stop: the station of Horna Stubna. Research showed that a freight train could be arriving, hauled by 3 Bardotka locomotives. Upon arrival, I knew I as right… but only caught the 3 loose engines heading back to Zilina. Tough luck. Upside is that I met 2 local photographers, who were so kind to show me around. They know the region and the traffic very well, and brought us right on time to some nice spots to see the train. And they knew when the freigh trains would be coming.
Notice the Fatra – not Tatra – mountains in the background.

First photo location my 2 Slovak friends brought me to, was Turcianske Teplice for seeing ZSSK 754 036 heading towards Horna Stubna. 22.9.2016
