Far-West Germany - pointduvue
Gremberg yard in Köln is the major freight hub in the area. A large number of freight trains are serviced here daily, and a good number also start and terminate here. In addition, the north-south main line skirting the yard hosts a good variety of trains not making setouts/pickups. The north yard throat is the busier end and has nice sight lines, including Gnf tower in this view.

Here's 155 181 with the Ambrogio train TEC 40084 (Gallarate/I - Muizen/B) bypassing the yard on its way to Aachen and on into Belgium.
