Going to town by ZCochrane Going to town by ZCochrane
Looks like christmas, but it's actually taken sunday easter morning, i.e. today. While we're used to snow in Goslar, this is really not usual.

A RegionalExpress (regional express train, although you don't notice the express part when you're in it) is heading into Goslar station. It's consisting of n-Type carriages, known as "Silberlinge" from the time when they weren't painted and just showed off their stainless steel sides.

It's pushed by the german standard diesel locomotive for just about anything, the class 218. The victory-sign it's exhaust stacks are making is meant to prevent the catenary from getting dirty when used on electrified lines.

Yes, it's practically the same. The 215 has less power, but otherwise, from the outside, the only way to tell them apart is by looking at the numbers written on it.

Nice shot! :D

England had a lot of snow overnight, and we're set to get more later on apparently. :snowing: :snowflake:

Then take advantage of it and take pictures of trains in the snow! It's what I did. :D

Unfortunately most of it has disappeared now, but next time, for sure I'll do it. :D

Hm, die 218 ist in meiner Gegend verdammt selten. Hatte die nur einmal in Bremen gesehen. War aber nicht von der DB, sondern von einer privaten Firma.

Interessant. Hier sehe ich die Lok wirklich häufig. Allerdings habe ich auch den Eindruck, dass sich die Region Braunschweig auch Sachen gefallen lässt, die andere Bestellerorganisationen nicht akzeptieren würden, was das Alter des Rollmaterials angeht. Ich hasse Züge wie diesen hier.

Dafür trifft man bei uns häufig die 110, die ja auch nicht mehr die jüngste ist. :D

Da besteht in Goslar keine Gefahr mangels Fahrdraht :D Aber ansonsten, in Braunschweig und Hannover, trifft man die natürlich auch bei uns Südniedersachsen viel.
