When travelling around often, you get to know your favorite places. Whenever I travel between home and Switzerland, I try to include a stop at “Boulangerie Bernard” in the center of Mommenheim. Their butter rolls are de-li-cious and more than worth the short detour!
On the morning of january 29th I had no effort convincing my fellow traveller to stop over at Mommenheim. We were planning on making photos on this stretch of the railway line between Basel and Thionville anyway. And so we found ourelves, packed with butter rolls and hot chocolate, in a field just outside of Mommenheim. Enjoying breakfast we photographed the steady parade of trains. This included a lot of TGV services, only a couple of months before the majority if not all would be rerouted over the new TGV-Est to Strasbourg. A selection below.
