October 2 2005:
Parallel Departures

This last weekend there was a ‘Plandampf’ event in Rhineland-Pfalz region of Germany. This entails certain local services being turned over to steam traction.

Twice a day, the small junction station of Winden would see parallel departures, one heading north to Neustadt and the other up the branch line to Bad Bergzabern.

Despite the gloomy skies, it was still quite a sight.

And this is a powerful image which evokes all kinds of memories for those of us who are old enough to remember. Excellent work Ray.
