Back from a pleasant long weekend in Berlin. We did less tourism than usual, but 34C temperatures does rather discourage trudging the streets, and encourage ice cream and beer and polite conversation. But here are a few railway (and other) shots…..
An ideal hotel room overlooking the U-1 line. The trains are remarkably quiet, even at night. More than can be said for the emergency services, with full sirens at all hours.
Having climbed up to the top of the Berliner Dom (too many stairs) it was worth the view.
Next day, we did another boat trip – the ideal way to relax and see the city – and a few trains if you are lucky.
I saw some new liveries on trains crossing the bridges, but none close enough to get a picture. This picture of the new Flixtrain cut-price service comes from their website, but is taken from a boat on the Spree.
A visit to my daughter’s partner’s craft brewery (good product) and the old and disused Witenau station building on the S-bahn.
Queuing for Sicilian ice-cream – and U-bahn spotting…
One topical (if not political) one on a taxi.
And the compulsory sunset to ride off into…..
Where’s the brewerey Jon?
