This looks like a busy line

The Angertalbahn is a non-electrified line connecting Ratingen and Wülfrath. It doesn’t see passenger trains anymore since long, but there is still frequent freight traffic to the Rheinkalke lime factory. I didn’t have any knowledge of train times but decided to give it a try. Explore, discover photo opportunities and, who knows, see a train. In Flandersbach luck was already on my side: a train hauled by a G1206 owned by Eisenbahn & Häfen was about to leave the yard, towards the lime factory. I had barely enough time to set up and make a photo.

Eisenbahn & Häfen’s 543, G1206 number 275 845, is leaving Flandersbach with a row of empty lime cars. 17.3.2016
