FRANCE – a study of passenger traffic along the mainline which parallels the River Doubs just to the east of Besançon in eastern France.We also see BB25500 electrics, now very much in the twilight of their careers
SWITZERLAND – we visit the busy station at Aarau on the line from Zurich to Olten. Our evening stopover coincided with the busy teatime commuter rush where passenger services were almost continuous. Freight traffic is also seen as they slot into the few available paths
BELGIUM – a look at freight train action on the eastern exit of Antwerpen’s Noord marshalling yard. It is the busiest yard in the country.
POLAND – we look at freight and passenger traffic through Wroclaw Sołtysowice station which is situated to the north-east of the city. Freight traffic is busy and particularly coal traffic which dominates on the Polish network.
AUSTRIA – the scenic delights of the Brenner Pass route are witnessed in this section as we focus our attention on rails which skirt the picturesque village of St. Jodok. Situated high above the village we look down on to the tracks as we see some delightful views of freight and passenger trains making their way up and down this steeply-graded main line.
GERMANY – mainline and industrial tracks are covered as we look at action to the south of Duisburg. Our location covers the main rail bridge over the River Rhein at Hochfeld where a variety of freight and passenger trains are seen crossing the river. We also look at the line down to the steelworks at Duisburg Buchholz.
