Here is a translation:

In the little train station of Monte Antico the train will stop for approximately 25 minutes for the spectacular manuvers and restocking of water. Passengers can take beautiful photos and observe the antique locomotive up-close. We will then depart in the direction of Asciano, going through the UNESCO nominated natural park called Parco della Val d'Orcia in the zone of Brunello Montalcino and the Crete Senesi

From what I can tell there are four types of steam engines that maybe used on the trip, depending on the availability of the engines and the 741 is one of these engines. I have read the program but I don't see where they confirm the type of engine on this trip - I know that sometimes they do. Perhaps as we get a bit closer to the date.

Have you looked at tickets, they fill up fast. However, if you have a car you can always just go straight to the town of Monte Antico and watch as a spectator and not a train rider.

Buon Viaggio,
