Well in fact, I heard that in case of very high winds (like often the case on the line to Sylt) a big loco on a short train is definitely **no** overkill.

Nice picture.
Looks like a picture from 2009, taken 370 km from Bonn.
http://kbs761.startbilde...bergabezug-fzt56105.html

I know the Bonn area a bit ans was curious where the photo had been taken. 370 km may be "near" in America, but in tiny Germany it is "far".Wink
Description from a different picture?

In the model world, I am a great believer in running trains with an odd number of cars.
I don't know if I am dreaming, but somehow up to about 11 cars, the train looks more realistic.
From 12 cars onward, it does not seem to matter.

The 2014 posts no. 48 and 88 as well as 2015 posts no. 276/277/278 further up present short 1950s F-trains.

Post no. 167 shows a 1950s commuter train.

That is more challenging.

Is that Bornheim maybe? 2017 museum locos, former GDR locos.


Different location, but most likely the same train can be seen here:
