Am Puls der Zeit / Finger on the pulse

Es ist eine Zeitreise, in einem Dampfzug zu reisen. Die Gedanken springen zurück in eine Zeit, in der die Eisenbahn als neumodisch bezeichnet wurde. Als sie die Beweglichkeit und den Aktionsradius der Menschen deutlich erweiterte. Das Schnaufen, Zischen und Pfeiffen gehörte als Zeichen dieses Fortschritts dazu. Mit ungläubigem Staunen und offenen Mündern standen die Menschen damals vor den Dampfrössern und Eisenwegen. 
Heute ist dieses Erstaunen wieder zu erleben, wenn Menschen mit den Dampfzug fahren und zu diesen Ursprüngen zurück kehren. Mit einer Lok am Zug, wie der I K Nr. 54, deren technische Grundlagen in den 1880er Jahren liegen, ist dieses Staunen umso verständlicher - nur heute steht keiner mit offenen Mündern auf der ersten Plattform, denn Fotoapparate und Videokameras zeichnen die Zeitreise im Detail auf. Unsere Gäste sind eben trotz Zeitreise am Puls der Zeit.
Wir wünschen einen schönen Sonntag :-)

It is like stepping back in time, to travel in a steam train. The thoughts will return to a time when the railroad was called newfangled. As they advanced the mobility and the radius of the people clearly. The snorting, hissing and whistling was part of it as a sign of this progress. With incredulous astonishment and open mouths, people were standing at that time before the steam horses and iron trails.
Today, this astonishment is to experience again when people take the steam train and return to these origins. With a steam locomotive on the train, like the class Saxon I K No. 54, lying their technical basics in the 1880s, this amazement is all the more understandable - only today no one standing with open mouths on the first platform, because cameras and video cams record the journey on in detail. Our guests are just in spite of time travel on the pulse of the times.
We wish you a nice Sunday :-)

Für die islamische Terrormiliz IS sind Kinder wichtiges Kapital. Sie werden an Pädophile verkauft, um Geld für Waffen freizumachen. Junge Mädchen dienen als Sexsklavinnen, kleine Buben als nichtsahnende Selbstmordattentäter. Auch die Verbündeten des Westens tragen eine große Mitschuld.

Winterspaß / Winter fun

Auch mit dem Beginn der Winterferien für alle Schüler in Sachsen gibt es noch gute Schneebedingungen im Erzgebirge. Sowohl Wintersport wie auch ein Erlebnisausflug mit unserer Dampfeisenbahn sind da gute Möglichkeiten, die Ferien sinnvoll zu verleben. Und keine Sorge, man kann auch beides gut verbinden, denn Wintersportgeräte aller Art werden bei uns im Gepäckwagen kostenfrei befördert. Wir hoffen mal, dass der Schnee sich noch bis Ende Februar hält, denn wir fahren bis dahin an jedem Wochenende. Im Bild verlässt die IV K 99 1590-1 mit ihrem Zug gerade die kleine Ortschaft Schmalzgrube in Richtung Jöhstadt. Wir wünschen einen schönen Sonntag.

Even with the beginning of winter holidays for all pupils in Saxony, there are good snow conditions in the Ore Mountains (Erzgebirge). Both winter sports as well as an adventure trip with our steam train are there good ways to spend the holidays meaningful. And do not worry, you can also combine both good because winter sports equipment of all kinds are carried free of charge in the baggage car. Let's hope that the snow still persists to the end of February, as we go every weekend. The picture shows the steam loco class Saxon IV K 99 1590-1 leaves with her train just the small village Schmalzgrube towards Joehstadt station.
We wish you a nice Sunday.

They see me rollin'

Here are some fun, interesting panda facts!

1. The panda’s diet is 99% Bamboo - It seems that the panda really knows what it likes. Bamboo has a very low nutrient content, so pandas must eat up to 84 pounds of bamboo per day. Occasionally, the panda will stray from its much loved diet of bamboo to eat grass or even small rodents.

2..     The panda has strange skin coloring – Underneath that fuzzy coating of black and white fur, the panda has some pretty strange skin coloring. Beneath the white fur, the skin is black and beneath the black fur, the skin is pink!

3.     The panda cub can’t open its eyes after birth – It takes approximately 50 to 60 days for the panda cub to open its eyes. Therefore, the mother must stay with the panda at all times, rarely leaving the den.

4.     The panda has huge teeth – Even though the panda looks like an overgrown teddy bear, it can actually be quite dangerous. One panda tooth is on average seven times bigger than a human tooth.

5. The panda loves to eat – The panda’s diet may consist only of bamboo, but pandas sure spend a lot of time eating it. The panda spends between 12 to16 hours of the day eating!

6. The mother panda is 900 times bigger than the cub at birth – When born, the panda cub is about the size of a croissant. The mother will hold the tiny panda cub (she usually only has one per birth) in her paw, pressing it against her chest to keep it warm and safe.

7. Pandas bleat like goats – Pandas don’t make a scary roaring sound like most bears. Instead they make friendly bleating and honking noises to communicate with other pandas. Or they sneeze in a hilarious fashion as seen in the famous Sneezing Panda video.

8. Pandas are solitary animals – Pandas enjoy their own company. They are usually alone and only socialize with other pandas when they want to mate.

9. Pandas don’t hibernate – Unlike most other bears that live in moderate climates, the panda’s food source, bamboo, is available year-round. Additionally, because bamboo has a low nutrient content, pandas are unable to pack on enough pounds to hibernate.

10. The Panda sits while eating – The panda has good manners. Instead of standing while eating food, the panda will sit in order to use its front paws to hold the bamboo shoots.
