Far-West Germany - pointduvue
140 799 and 140 838 team up to move a coil train southbound through Lintorf, a small place between Düsseldorf and Duisburg that sees a near-constant parade of freight traffic from and to the Ruhr area and the ports in the Netherlands. During 2008 the nearly half-a-century old standard electrics of class 140 were still a common sight on all kinds of heavy freight trains, oftentimes doubleheaded. That's the abandoned station building in the background.
