The Orient Express Stops in Odense

VSOE coach: Detail

The vintage Venice-Simplon Orient Express made a short call in Odense on its way back from Sweden in order to allow some InterCity trains to overtake it. Needless to say, this attracted a lot of train enthusiasts. I made some snapshots with my mobile phone.

The train was hauled by a Class MZ locomotive, DSB 1401. The terrible thing is that I remember the Class MZs as shiny new locomotives from my childhood.
