Photographer's Note

Hunsrückbahn is a short branch line rising from Boppard on the Rhein valley to forested Hunsrück region. The image is not tilted, the gradient is 6% which makes Hunsrückbahn steepest normal gauge adhesion railway north of the Alps. The line was built in 1908 and was originally a rack railway.

Idea for the title came to my mind looking at how well this scene would suit for a model railroad. Scene is simple and visibility is limited behind the rails. Train is short and fits well in limited spaces. And a bird eye view is typical on miniature models. This shot was taken on a chair lift rising to Gedeonseck lookout point.

Please have a look at the large version.
