I don't understand how this is logistically possible. Do you tow it around on the highway or just operate it around europe on train tracks?

Or go with the tweaker method and sell it as scrap

Don't be so gloomy. After all it's not that awful. Like the fellow says, in Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock!

I stole two trains in the morning.
I stole two trains at night.
I stole two trains in the afternoon, it makes me feel alright
I stole two trains a dime a piece, and two the time before
I stole two trains before I steal two trains,
and then I steal two more

At 800 kilogram you could easily just put it on a flat bed tow truck lorry.

I think the key word here is MINIATURE.

Why does their steam train run on gas?

If only there were something they could follow.. Maybe they could keep track of the crime better?

Train riddle time!

Two trains are at their respective stations: train A and train B. One is at station A, the other at station B. There is only a single rail line between stations A and B, and they are directly connected. There are no other stations or track switches in between. At 6 o'clock, train A heads to station B, and train B heads to station A. They do not stop. And yet, they don't collide. How is this possible?

They're trains of thought?

Two trains, including one weighing almost a tonne, have been stolen from a miniature train park in western Switzerland, the park said Saturday.
The Swiss Vapeur Park said in a statement online that "the offenders have forced open the doors of two different depots, and took the two trains".
One is a petrol-run train called BVB, while another is a steam train that runs on gas, said the park located at Le Bouveret.
"We do not understand how they have managed to load these trains, knowing that the BVB train alone weighs about 800 kilogrammes," it added.


I have absolutely no idea what the hell is going on here.

At least one is a ghost train.

Natural Gas and/or Propane gas. these gasses, when ignited produce a hot flame. this hot flame can then be used to heat water to a boiling point producing steam, which can then be used to produce mechanical force via a steam engine.

All good guesses. However:

They left at 6 o'clock. Meaning, one left at 6 AM, the other at 6 PM!

I was going to suggest either they left on different days, or farking magnets.

@itsfullofstars There are "parks" like this and private railroads all over the world. There may be one close to home. Check it out!

They just get a bucket of steam and pour it in.
To get it to run they have to feed it beans. Then it gets the runs. Simple.

It is! Although the last time I visited was a couple of years ago. Must visit again soon...

(By the way, the "BVB" train was a model of a train on the Bex-Villars-Bretaye line - here's an article with photos of the stolen trains.)
