I was lucky enough to catch the end of the Union Pacific's turbine experimentation era. My action photos were of them coming down off Sherman Hill. Most of the others were of the dead-line in Cheyenne, On only one trip did I catch them east of there. Here is Big Blow #14 being turned (the engine room being mopped out) in North Platte.

Even standing still these were impressive beasts.

A pair of Seaboard Coast Line (nee' Seaboard Air Line) AlCo RS3's drag a short local past the freight depot in sleepy Clearwater. That was 1968. It's not the same town these days.

Here at Chicago's Dearborn Street station is one of two Monon Alco Centuries specifically for passenger service. They were C420s that replaced their F-units. The high hoods held steam generators.

I thought I'd post a pic where the entire scrap train is visible, seven class 140 locos and one class 139, parked on one of Opladen's now redundant tracks.

Why the title? Well, almost all of these locomotives had the reporting mark KOPLX printed on their sides. K stands for Köln, the Cologne area, X tells you that it's an "Ausbesserungswerk", a repair workshop, and OPL? Why it's Leverkusen-Opladen! Just behind all those trees on the right side of the tracks lays one of Germany's largest locomotive repair facilities, the Ausbesserungswerk Opladen, closed down in 2003, amids great protests and hunger strikes.

It was a highly controversial topic, as the workshop was rather profitable, and private investors showed interest in keeping it open. Even Bombardier offered to buy it, but the DB remained stubborn. Some say that they were scared of independent workshops that also offer services to private railroads that compete with them. Interestingly, one can see DB repairing locos of private railroads nowadays, showing that their actions were not just harmful, but also unlogical.

Back in the day, such a line of locos was obviously waiting to be towed into the workshop for general overhauls, repairs and inspections. These here may have returned home, but they'll leave the mainline towards the other side, towards the scrapyard everyone now knows as the Bender. This is quite a sad place for a railfan, but nowhere else can you get closer to the locos than here, nowhere else can you see so many of them together, to conserve the sight just before it's gone...

Red engine in white landscape, cold snow and hot brake resistors, a photo of contrasts! Class 143 electric from the GDR about to stop in Leverkusen-Mitte, hauling an S-Bahn train. The weather lead to many unpredictable delays on the network, but overall, the trains were running. Compared to airports being shut down and many accidents on the roads, trains do seem to win in severe weather. Unless you were stuck in the Channel Tunnel of course...

... is the Beginning of the Future.

The time for the standardised electric locomotives of the former Deutsche Bundesbahn (German Federal Railway) is almost over. There are still enough to spot one every now and then, but their numbers are getting smaller at an increasing rate. When they were introduced in the 50s and 60s, railfans cried out at the sight of these bland boxes that unceremoniously pushed the steam engines into their graves. Their time was up.

Now, the usurpers are being overthrown. For almost half a century, these locomotives were the backbone of the freight sector, rugged and simple boxes with 5000hp at their disposal. They were renowned for being able to return home in almost all cases, being considered the single most reliable locomotive class in Germany, and the most numerous one, with 879 units in total.

They leave the playing field silently, making way for the latest generation of three-phase electrics. The new machines are faster, more powerful, consume less energy and even feed power back into the grid when braking. They are more pleasant to operate thanks to noise insulated and air conditioned cabs, they can put much more power to the rails thanks to sophisticated control electronics, they produce less noise, don't leak oil, and cost less to maintain.

For railfans today, the new locomotives are an unpleasant sight, just like the old ones were back in their time. There will always be improvements and innovations that change the way our trains look and run. Sometimes, the changes aren't visible to the passenger. Sometimes, he notices that the new EMU is all good and nice, but the seats they put into them are hard as fuck. Often, he appreciates not having to wrench open the doors himself, but he might also ask himself why the new doors are broken so frequently. There are good and bad sides about every aspect of old and new rolling stock.

But generally speaking, it's not much use to cry about when the old is superseded by the new. We might be wondering why the youngsters of the future will chase down the locomotives we hated so much when we were young. We will eventually realize that there is a time for everything, and nothing lasts forever.
