Homecoming by shenanigan87 Homecoming by shenanigan87
103 113 arrives home on a sunny Pentecost Monday, crossing the famous Hohenzollern Bridge and entering Cologne Central Station.

As explained here, this locomotive was once a museum exhibit until being resurrected recently. From now on, it will pull the weekly historic InterCity to Flensburg, as well as TEE nostalgia trains. Her arrival wasn't a moment too soon, as 103 184 has been taken out of service due to worn wheelsets, leaving 103 235 to fend for herself. If a TEE special train coincided with the historic InterCity, other locomotives had to be found to haul it, as 235 can't be in two places at the same time. Now, however, we can rest assured that this train is firmly in 103-hands (or coupling hooks) for our viewing pleasure.

:)

More pics can be found in my DSO post, as always.

Excellent photo!
I have driven it in the early seventies!
Rheingold & Rheinpfeil times!
It was then THE LoKomotive!
Thank you!

I count 12 wheels on the locomotive, would they be of the Co-Co arrangement?

Yep! Co'-Co' if one were to be pedantic. :)

Die 103er ist einfach noch die schönste aller E-Loks.

Wunderbar eingefangen!

Soma,
Thanks for the "poke." As it happens I'm on the road traveling and have taken a few extra days to chase trains and catch up a little on DevArt.

Es ist sowieso eine absolute Pflichtstelle, wenn man als Bahnfan nach Köln kommt. Ich hoffe es noch zu einer Zeit zu schaffen, wo es noch Bügelfalten im Planbetrieb gibt... also in den nächsten (1,5?) Jahren.... Bei Nürnberg hab ich ja auch im letzten Moment erst zugeschlagen.

Besonders als Bahnfan der in der Nähe wohnt! :D

Für Bügelfalten ist auch Dinslaken recht empfehlenswert, zwar vom Motiv her nichts besonderes, aber man kann vier oder gar fünf von ihnen nacheinander erwischen, und das bei super Licht. [link] Also noch kann man das, es ist schon eine 111 in nem Umlauf...

Die Zeit eilt also, wie so oft. Danke dir für den Tipp für die 2. Fotostelle. Falls ich es mal schaffe, nach Köln zu kommen muss ich mir sowieso die Rosinen herauspicken.... :(

Oh, wow. You got the gorgeous lighting for this one. Very fine.

Thanks! :) That's why I chose this spot, as it was the only place (within a reasonable distance) where the train was pointed towards the sun.

Thanks! :) Trackage near major stations is always a rather intricate sight.

It just looked a little unusual - having been done on a curve. I'm pretty familiar with the look complex switches - as I often travel in and out of Hoboken, NJ. In fact, I'm on a train headed there right now!

I wish we did that more often! x) There can never be enough working preserved locomotives! Though we got lucky with this class, as many have been saved.
