Far-West Germany - pointduvue
155 259 westbound with the 40158 (Milano/I - Bierset/B) in Eschweiler. As DB Schenker culls their fleet of older units rendered surplus by the slacking economy, these venerable Co' Co' survivors from ex-East Germany are acutely endangered. Rumor has it they as well as the 50+ year old class 140s are to be sidelined soonish. So getting a good shot of a rather clean unit is all the more satisfactory.
