The 8400hp behemoth, that is the DB class 151, coming around the bend in Opladen with a short freight train in tow.
I originally only wanted to check out the current construction site, with the scrapyard's siding having been re-routed from the passenger to the freight line, in anticipation of major reconstruction efforts in this part of town. Nobody knows how it will look in the end though, so I can't tell you whether this is a sensible investment or a waste of money.
Anyways, this train came around just when I was there, so it just had to be photographed!
