A railfan's dream house

This is the last spot of the afternoon already: freight train traffic was scarce. A northbound intermodal train runs through the town of Braubach. "through" has to be taken literally here: it passes right in front of the houses. Considering this is one of the busiest freight lines in Germany, you can understand why inhabitants of the villages are complaining about noise. Let's hope authorities come up with creative solutions that won't consist of covering the whole railway line with meters-high noise barriers.

 

DISPO 189 092 (TXL ES 64 F4-992), Braubach 26.3.2016
