Trains (should) have priority

Trains and trams have priority at this pedestrian crossing – a German traffic sign. I wish it were true for traffic policy as well.  Less cars, more trains!

A quite nostalgic looking section of the Odenwald Bahn which curves through our backyard (literally, in my sister’s case).

This is the half-way station of the Heidelberg funicular railway which leads up to the hill called Königstuhl on the slopes of which the ruin of the Heidelberg castle is situated.  It has been in operation since 1890 and has seen many modernisations throughout the years.  In 1910 the upper section was added.

It’s difficult to see as there is dense woods on both sides. I should try to get there in winter next time!
