    Was on a coach tour of Sorrento (not my prefered way of travel) and passed these old trains, obviously I cursed. But on the return journey we stopped not far from them, so I sprinted over and had just 3 minute before the coach set off

    I was going to ask where in Sorrento. I was there a couple of weeks ago and didn't see any trains. :) Nice shots.

    Any insights regarding the history of these engines? They sure look like they were designed for hard work, not show.

    The Engines were fully covered in rust, were in the mountains of Sardinia on a small gauge line so definatly were working engines
