An abandoned bridge

The Ruhr area is densely populated with not only people, but also train tracks. Difference is that population is probably increasing, and the number of tracks are probably decreasing. This photo is taken standing atop a bridge of a once active railway line. The line going underneath connects Oberhausen to the Dutch Betuwe route and thus sees a lot of traffic from the port of Rotterdam, mainly hauled by class 189 locomotives.

A Rotterdam – Oberhuasen shuttle hauled by DB’s 189 038 and a sister is arriving in Oberhausen. 20.2.2016
