Green Machine by shenanigan87 Green Machine by shenanigan87
So, we meet again!



Privately owned V200 diesel locomotive from 1957, seen here hauling aluminium slabs through Leverkusen Alkenrath. Took this today from a photo spot that I never used before, namely a level crossing near an Aral petrol station. That's also where I took the shot I submitted earlier, as they have an Antonov An-2 on display.



Since I usually always photograph passenger trains, I thought it would be a nice change of pace to have some freight in my gallery as well. Now this train may be very short, but the locomotive was by far the most interesting one today. I mean, how often do you see locomotives from the 1950s in regular use? Thought so... Went for a wider crop with this one, since I liked the rails disappearing into the haze.

You can use the regular thumbnail code, but you must have premium membership.
