I know this topic is three years old, but let's try to revive it
Current Favourite European trains are those in my adopted country, Slovenia.
Nice to hear that, Andersley :smilie_daumenpos:
My favourite is Bohinj Railway
(Slovene: Bohinjska proga, Italian: Transalpina, German: Wocheiner Bahn). It is known as one of the most beautiful parts of European railways (and where you can still experience real steam train trips).
A few pictures of Borsig class 06 (on different parts of Slovenian railway sistem).

With her sister class 33 getting into action also...
near Slovenska Bistrica
(with length of 221,7 meters and arch span of 85 meters it is the longest stone bridge in the world and the longest stone bridge among train bridges), part of Bohinjska proga.

Between Celje and Laško
For more informations; Museum train - Bohinj railway
My grandfather was a locomotive engineer/train driver. He drove the mighties steam locomotives (Borsig class 06, Borsig 33, 03 - high speed passenger and freight trains) of former Yugoslav Railways - JŽ (Jugoslovanske železnice
) and also the most powerful JŽ diesel (Class 661 - aka Kennedy) and electro locomotives.
Here is me on Borsig 06 (at the railway museum in Ljubljana), this locomotive is used for spare parts only but we have two more in running condition, one is for Museum train hauls, the other one is resting at the moment.
and on 33 series (it is complete but unrestored):
