Locomotive display, Bochum, Germany, 1985. by 

A highlight in the history of the Bochum railway museum was the large vehicle show put on in 1985 as part of the 150th anniversary of the German railways.

People tell me I should take pictures which sell, but I feel I would be selling my soul. Instead I keep on taking the pictures which I enjoy taking. I will probably never get rich from photography, or even make a decent living from it, but at least I will have left authentic images which might just be of of interest to someone after I have gone!

    How fascinating. I used to enjoy taking the Bundesbahn.

  • Do you remember these?

    Can’t say I do, David. I was familiar with the intercontinentals and locals when I lived in Germany 1980-88, which I used to use now and again between Lahr and Kehl/Strasbourg and sometimes points north.

  • Ah, yes, the Intercities and what they now call Interregios.
    I remember on my first trips down South almost 30 years ago now, there were a lot of weird and wonderful locos like these in normal service, mostly freight!

    The Swiss had loco’s similar to these in service during the 1980’s. Good shot David.

  • They certainly build things to last over here. In Düsseldorf they are still using trams built over 40 years ago and there are over 16,000 gas lights in the (otherwise modern) town, not just on minor roads!
