Heyo, I'm Tig. Big railfan and hobby photographer. Other interrests are city(building) and dragons.


If you search for a specific vehicle: The devations are tagged with their numbers in use and/or the company which operates them. If you search, for example, for a Desiro classic operated by DB, so type 'DB 642' into the gallery search function and press enter :P
Of course, this only works with vehicles/companies of which I already uploaded at least one pic. There also is a list of vehicles shown in the gallery folders 'Photography trains' and 'light rail' sorted by company and class number ;) Happy browsing!

DB 218 341+497 by Tigrar
DB 218 341+497
A few days ago, I went to Sylt. But instead of visiting the beach and the completeley overpriced town of Westerland, I decided to exit the train at Morsum and walked back to the island's southeastern end, which also is the western end of the so called "Hindenburgdamm". Now what's so special about that? First it's the trains: the only non- ferrry connection to the mainland is by rail. And DB earns quite a lot of cash operating a shuttle service for car owners to the island. During peak times every 30 minutes! Second is the dam itself: The longest of it's kind in germany. Opened in 1927 the 11.3km long dam offers a 8.1km route through a vast intertidal sea-zone (Called Wattenmeer).
218-341 and it's sister unit 497 lead one of the evening shuttle trains towards Westerland. I will upload a few more pictures focusing on the dam itself in the near future.

WSW GTW 6 by Tigrar
WSW GTW 6
GTW-06 enters Wupperfeld station on a late afternoon service towards Vohwinkel. The Schwebebahn is one of the most unique and magnificent expressions of public transport in Germany, which also gives an insight in the visionary use of technology in the late 19th century. The Light-Rail system connects Oberbarmen in the east and Vohwinkel in the west of Wuppertal(City). It's known for it's unusual alignment right aboth river Wupper for most of the line's lengh. Construction began in 1898 and the first segment was opened to  public in march 1901. Today, the system reaches rush hour headways as low as 3 minutes. During off peak hours and on weekends the line also serves as the city's main tourist attraction.

The vehicle which can be seen aboth is a 1972 type GTW buildt by M.A.N. By now, the 1972 series is the only type of stock in service. But it's star is falling as the units are faceing replacement by 2014 type GTWs entering service from mid-2016 onward.



Thanks in advance for +favs!

I went mad again about the bad quality of some of my older images.
Going through my gallery like a whirlwind, I deleted devations:

32 in the photography section
26 in the railroad-section
02 in the light rail section
01 in the Cabs&interior section
01 in the bridges section
27 in the ireland section
89 in total.

I spared a few devations because of their favorites (more than 8).
