DB Rabbits on the Run near Lindau—four new photos.

Among my favorite German locomotives are the old ‘Rabbits’ (classes 215-218 and rebuilds), so-called because of their rabbit-ear shaped exhaust stacks.

On Monday, 18 April 2016, Gerry Conmy, Dennis McCabe, Stephen Hirsch and I made a project photographing this declining class of diesel on the line running east from Lindau.

The Zurich-Munich long distance trains are still worked with these vintage machines. Several years earlier, Dennis and I had explored locations on this scenic non-electrified double track line.

Soft morning light aided the effect of the pastoral setting.

I exposed these views using my FujiFilm X-T1 digital camera.

Tracking the Light posts every day!

    Nice locations – very German. Not too many obstructions.
