Remembrance by shenanigan87 Remembrance by shenanigan87
She thundered through Leverkusen with an InterCity train on the 23rd of January, as substitute for rolling stock that broke down during the fierce winter. This was the last time I caught her "in the wild", and at this point, she had exactly 18 days till her inspection deadline.

As you may know, the guys at the Betriebswerk Dortmund wanted to give her a third one-year extension, which is quite rare these days. Sadly though, during the technical checkups, a grave problem was discovered. One of the longitudinal struts of the frame near the suspension showed a crack, which was an immediate death sentence.

So here's one last mini-feature, before I put this to the books.

Yeah, I dig that spot too, and I think this is the second "last shot" I took of a 110 here. The other one was 110 380, which also got scrapped after I took a last photo here. [link]

No, read the description. ;) Rolling stock broke down, I think some ICE trains, so the usual 101 had to substitute them, with 110 325 substituting the 101 on this IC.
