Not a very good picture, I think, but I guess some of you may like it. Next to the (relatively) new ICE 3, which had just arrived dead, hauled by two belgian diesel locomotives, is a significantly older class 110 locomotive, in the last years of its life, still dutifully hauling peak hour extra trains.
You may want to say something about "back then they built better trains". In all fairness, though: If the class 110 ever tried to either run in Belgium or reach 300 km/h, then it would fail significantly worse than this ICE did, which was still able to make the journey home on its own once it was back in Germany.
(If you're wondering about the dutch railways logo on the front of the train: They paid for it, and it's technically theirs, but it is registered in Germany, maintained by DB and used just like the others of its kind, with no regards for nationality of the trainsets).
