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.
