Past and Present

I always was a big fan of trains. But while I enjoy events like the one I have tried to describe last week, I feel sorry for the contrast between the past and the present state of much of the railway infrastructure. Many of the stations, built with utmost care and an eye for details and ornaments, have fallen into disrepair and are boarded up. Here a steam train pulls into the station of Trier Karthaus, once an important junction, which today looks like a complete mess.
