High Speed Steam Lasted Until 1975 In West Germany

Listen To These 3 Cylinder Monsters.

The Rheine to Nordeich line was still graced with 012 3 cylinder pacifics when we visited in 1974.

I loved this line so much, I returned before Christmas to ride the trains.

The photo used in the thumbnail was travelling around 120 kph.

For me the most exciting run was the 60 mph plus schedule from Leer to Rheine on the morning international.

At around 3 minutes into this clip you can clearly hear the 3 cylinder beat. Pure magic.
