CSX Heritage units 1776 "Honoring Our Veterans" and 3194 "Honoring Our Law Enforcement" recently returned from promotional tour and returned to revenue service. Pictured here in Folkston, GA pulling a mixed freight south.

How'd you manage to capture them both? Were they announced?
If they were I didn't know it. I spent a couple of days at the Folkston Funnel and just happened to catch them. Had I known Heritage units were coming I would have been positioned for better light. Both units were on the same train; 3194 pulling and 1776 pushing.

And the sun was gone. I wanted to try this spot, even though the weather was a hit and miss, a hit because we had some dramatic clouds taking turns with bright sunshine breaking through them. As I waited for the westbound RE7-service, the dramatic clouds vanished about half an hour ago and the sun disappeared behind a large, thick layer of clouds.

Emergence by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

Emerging from one of the many tunnels we walked through along the Mimente railway as we edged closer to the Gare de Cassagnas.

Profile of a battered cab car. These single deck control cars have been built from existing coaches in the early nineties and were a common sight on German trains for the following ~25 years. EU regulated bidding calls for regional rail services and the followed introduction of newly built, modern EMUs and further availability of more modern double deck control cars rendered these "Wittenberger Kopf"-cars almost obsolete. Today they are a fairly rare sight, very few however are even operated by private rail companies.

In stark contrast to the above, a profile shot of an ICE 4, which is the latest high-speed EMU.

Yet another RE7 train has almost finished about two-thirds of its westbound journey. While the past two days were essentially almost summer days, today quite some wind, much lower temperatures and especially a pretty cloudy sky kicked in. As usual, the nice evening sun disappeared behind a thick layer of clouds just a few minutes prior this shot.

Ghostbuggy,

Your photos brought back fond memories of my trips from Frankfurt to Karlsruhe on the ICE, and back and forth between Baden-Baden and Stuttgart on the RE. Looking forward to getting back there to visit with family when COVID is under better control.

Regards,

Edd

My working shift is almost over, while the day for the majority of people is about to start. One of the last two daily locomotive hauled trains on RE7 line is ready for service on a foggy monday morning. With the first passangers already gathering at the station, 112 184 will soon switch over to the platform and depart for the german capital.

Quite a bummer DXO doesn't work with Fuji files as well as the X100V doesn't have any kind of stabilization. I had to crank the ISO up to 6400 in order to achieve a decent shutter speed. Maybe I could've gotten away with 1/25s or 1/20s and a slightly lower ISO, but didn't bother taking too many shots...I also should've opened the aperture a bit more. Oh well.

Old and new sitting side by side, waiting for their next assignments. For almost two decades the class 143/112 locomotives and their double deck coaches have been the dominant motive power for regional services between Berlin and Dessau. Almost ten years ago, single deck "Talent 2" EMUs took over the vast majority of trains on this line. The EMU will soon get their first redesign, including a fresh coat of paint, reassigned seating, wifi as well as improved passenger information systems.
