Västkustbanan Class B 4-6-0 no. 1037

As mentioned in picture #19278, showing the electric locomotive Ma 403 at the other end of the train, just visible to the right here, I travelled with the Bergslagernas Järnvägssällskap (Bergslag Railway Association) from Gothenburg to Kornsjö at the Norwegian border, a distance of 180 km.
No. 1037 (see also picture #5684) was our principal motive power. On the way back we stopped at Ed station (see picture #19277) for water, provided from a tanker truck by the local fire brigade. Here you can see the hose to the tender. No. 1037 travelled backwards as far as Öxnered on the return journey, with Ma 403 hauling, but there, at 49 km from Gothenburg, there is a triangle where the train could be reversed and the steam engine arriving triumphantly at the head of the train at Gothenburg Central station. It was dar by that time, but as we arrived during rush hour just before 6 pm, there was a large crowd with cameras to greet our arrival!
