Things that are not aesthetic

There seems to be a corollary in the book of railfanning that states a busier a location is the uglier the surroundings will be. This indeed holds true for this are outside the port of Hamburg, under the ugly mess of powerlines sits one of the busiest stretch of freight trackage in the city with a near constant stream of switch jobs shuffling containers between the docks and the railyards. To top it off the trains are worked by a wide variety of switchers in all kinds of paint schemes so its a fun place to watch even if the scenery leave a bit to be desired....
