It is sunny summer day. Young family come along entry pavement at the main station of the park railway. They are missing ticket office at the first. There are buy a valid tickets. There is possibility buy a souvenirs with railway and transport themes. Children like the colouring book and pairs with locomotives and coaches of the our park railway. But they buy them on the way back because they don´t want to keep them during their sightseeing ride. Men´s and ladies´ toilets are without saying and they accessible on the first platform. But the main operation is on the second platform. There is a regular passenger train ready for departure on the second track. It is hauled by narrow-gauge diesel locotractor Gmeinder. Five minutes to departure and they can look around station.

The transport controller warn about forthcoming departure of the regular passenger train. This train is ready at the second platform, the second rail. The nonscheduled sightseeing train is coming at the third track. The engine driver uncouples an electric shunting locomotive and locomotive goes back to the depot. Two minutes to departure regular passenger train and the transport controller is checking ticket to passengers. He clips every ticket by pincers. We are waiting for a gaining granny with two grandchildren. Follow necessary tickets checking and all is ready - "Departure!" A gurgle diesel locomotive revs up, short toot and passenger trains get moving. The engine driver accelerates behind departure junction and all train fades into the distance shortly.

But steam locomotive is ready for operation and it slowly run on the turntable. Draining valves are open fully and locomotive is shrouded in steam. The locomotive stops at the turntable and engine driver turns it to the one of station rails. And necessary securing rails by latch even. The locomotive leaves turntable, entries into the station and slowly run to the nonscheduled sightseeing train. An impatient passengers get on. The engine driver executes test of brakes and he oils coupling rods. The train is ready for departure ...
