Someone on DSO informed us that there'll be four 110-pulled trains today. And you know that I jump at chances of shooting "Bügelfalte" class 110s, especially if they're not being torn apart
at the Bender. Other pics from today can be found in my DSO post
, as always.
Despite the high ISO and subsequent need for noise reduction via Photoshop, I really liked this shot from today's lot. It doesn't only contain an awesome class 110 engine that pulled me here from Düsseldorf, but snowflakes whirling around, illuminated by the sodium-vapor lamps at Mönchengladbach Central Station. I quite liked the mood, colour, and the composition too, with the trainshed being visible in the background.
The engine here is 110 494. Hmm, does that seem familiar?
And I even caught her sister once, 110 493!
I could probably dig up more photos, including some that show the other 110 I caught today. The gist is just that their numbers are getting decimated rather quickly now, so those that haven't yet reached their inspection deadline show up more often on my photos. The others show up one last time, when I shoot them at the Bender...
