Hello All,

For some seasonal reading, I offer a link to my Blog post on the Reynauld's Blog:  "An Austrian Railroad Christmas:"

It's an older post, but some of you who may be new to the site may not have seen it before -- and even I enjoy reading it again every now and then.

By the way, this is the 199th anniversary of "Silent Night" -- which was, of course, written and first performed in a small town near Salzburg, Austria.

In observation of the 200th anniversary in 2018, a private Austrian railroad operator of long-distance unit trains has already unveiled a special paint scheme for one of its Siemens Vectron locomotives.  HO models will be available from Roco, which sponsored the paint scheme.

Here are some prototype photos from the Roco site -- on a page that is currently only available in German.  (Scroll down for the photos.)
