    Somewhere in the Black Forrest?

    Comment


      The clue that shines in my face is the wide tracks... searching google for wide track railways, I came across Breitspurbah which I know is wrong, judging by other pictures.

        Not in the Black Forest, it is more North. And we have standard gauge. Have a look at the vehicles...

      Vehicles???? In the plural. But I can see only one vehicle, the train on the track in the second photo. I enlarged that as much as possible and did the obvious thing - trying to read the destination plate. But I can't. It doesn't look as if Ralf has covered it though.
      Befuddled!

        I have no inside knowledge, but I suspect Ralf means look at the vehicles making up the train - they're no taller than the people standing next to them.
        Cheers,

          So a "mini train" on wide tracks. That should give a railroad historian something to go by. (??)
          Or does the tracks look wide just because the train carriages are small?

          By the way, we did'nt ask to know if we are in Germany. It could be Luxembourg….

        I will give you the first clue right now:

        make a quote for it ,so it's on the same page again

        no yves, it's Germany.
        standard German language on the shield, also the white poles near the road with the black dioginal stripe over it is German.
        it's look more of a roundtrip train or a short a to b train , like from the village up to a mountain for a sight seeing point

          You had a very close look and you found out a lot which is correct. So yes, Thijs, we are in Germany and you see vehicles, not a train, and they are small - and unique. You will find such ones only at this place. Look at their roofs - that is a next hint.

            Is this anything to do with hydrogen powered trains? Or solar energy?

              Oh, right, got it. Problem is that we tend to refer to any rail vehicle as a 'train' whether or not it is a 'train'!

              If I'm right then these ones are low-ish emission (largely methane!) rail vehicles. They're powered by thermonuclear power (10%) and assorted other organic materials processed by humans.

              https://wosonst.eu/en/time-off-on-rails/ is a great description, but site is here: https://www.solardraisine-ueberwaldbahn.de/

                Perfect, mark. You solved it. But ivy had the correct suggestion. Do you want to jump in, ivy, or shall polo post the next one? By the way... very good description of the power concept. It is indeed a strange mixture. But fun to drive anyway.

                    I'd love to set the next puzzle though I've little to offer from my own photos. But the main problem is finding a hosting site that doesn't forbid posting photos which are not your own, so that I can crib from Wiki Commons where so many lovely photos are offered with no fear of copyright problems. I did find one site which doesn't seem to mind, but I've forgottren it now!
                    However, Mark positively ID'd this train and I would never have got beyond my suggestion. It's truly all yours, Polo-lad.

                      Hmm, not entirely sure - but you are, always, the boss Ivy - and that's the way it should be.

                      Try this one then, what place is this?



                      Possibly too easy.

                        Anyway, to be back to the puzzle, is it in Scandinavia?

                        So, is there a link with Hurtigruen (waiting room….)?

                      Nope. Although it is near the sea.

                        HUH! There's rather a lot of sea in and out and roundabout Scandinavia.

                      May be worth working out which sea as a starting point.
