Far-West Germany - pointduvue
Lintorf sits just north of the junction with the Angertalbahn, a branch line running to a large limestone quarrying operation at Flandersbach. Several trains daily ply that line carrying lime to the blast furnaces in the Ruhr area and the Netherlands. Here 232 575 is seen returning with a Dutch empty train, trailing a nice dust cloud on a hot and muggy day in 2008.

If you pass through the Duisburg-Düsseldorf area and want to stop over and railfan for a couple hours, this place is excellent. You can drive right up to it and sit in your car while you wait. A nearby grade crossing as well as signals alert you to oncoming trains. There is usually a lot of traffic through Lintorf on any given day except Sundays and Mondays.
