Old Electrics!

Travelling around Europe in the late 80's it was still possible to see locomotives that appeared to have come out of the Ark!

Here is an FS Class E626, first in service in 1927 and still going strong 60 plus years latter. I caught this one near Misano on the Adriatic coast in 1989. Not pretty, apparently cold and not very nice to drive.... But what a thing!
