Back to Europe, and more.

Leading up to this last week you may have noticed I was furiously uploading images from the collection of German registered wagons (country code 80).  This is now complete, all 2946 images, proof that Hamburg Harburg is one of the places to go if you want see a lot of freight.  One of the last wagons to be uploaded was this image below, Zcs 23 80 7465 383-9 which according to its UN code sticker was carrying Sulfuric acid with more than 51% acid.

Another set of wagons uploaded were these vehicles which I presume were acting as barrier vehicles/translators (though I could be wrong), the reason for them being in the train was probably one of the highlights of the trip.  It was one of those moments where I photographing a mixed freight heading south on the eastern side of the station when one of the German lads I had been talking to yelled there was a freight coming in northbound behind us.  A quick spin round to check the contents of the train, if it had been a modal I would have ignored it for the mixed freight, instead it was a case of ignoring the mixed freight.

The reason for the barriers/translators ( ? ), these Russian registered tank wagons.  These wagons arriving during my last few hours at Hamburg Harburg had me smiling.
