This morning, the final exam of this year went over well. That means I finally have vacation, and went to Cologne mainly to try out Flinkster, which is a car-sharing service by DB and very interesting because it only uses Alfa Romeo Mitos. It turns out the Mito is an amazing car in everything except the GPS system (in the Blue&Me Nav version), which not only gives incorrect directions every now and then and has a very unfriendly voice, but also lacks a map view. Having no map of my own and no real plan for the tour, it mainly ended up me driving around and trying to take the odd train picture. This is the only one that I actually liked.
Kalk is a part of Cologne that has a huge switching yard, and here, a class 294 (not to be confused with the heavier 295) diesel road switcher has just started pulling a train out of there.
