Signal Bridge by shenanigan87 Signal Bridge by shenanigan87
And the last one of my recent attempts of including more landscape into train shots. Class 143 hauled S-Bahn train, about to pass the cantilever signal bridge in Langenfeld. You may have seen it on this shot already, with the smokestacks of the Bayer factory visible in the background. If you're good, you may recognize one of those on my recent Ju 52 pic as well.

One of these days, I'll make a map, marking where I took which shot, to add some proper spatial context. :XD:

In all seriousness though, I'm rather amazed at how many photo opportunities my little hometown has to offer. Leverkusen is looked down upon by most, being considered a factory town that was built around Bayer, which is true of course. But few people realize the interesting mixture of infrastructure and landscape that this town has to offer. My house is wedged between two mainlines, two major Autobahn routes intersect here, and the approach path for Cologne Bonn Airport is right above me. Hell, less then a decade ago, we even had one of the largest locomotive workshops in the country! But despite all this, I only have to ride my bike for a couple of minutes to meet people on horseback, riding past a picturesque millrace. And even then, one can hear the trains roar by.

I like it here! :)

The way you describe Leverkusen really makes it sound grand. Must be an awesome place to live if you're a gearhead! :D

Sehr schöne Ansicht! Ich finde es lustig, wie das Bild von dem Mast praktisch in zwei Teile geteilt wird.

Ja, das war ganz passend! Fiel mir aber erst beim Bearbeiten auf, vor Ort hab ich das nicht so wirklich mitbekommen. :XD:

The signal tower reminds me of a hangman game.
