Remarks & Notes 
Kriegslok 52 6666, one of the last survivors of it's class in 1983, hauls a long train out of the marshalling yard of Berlin Schöneweide. Co-incidentally I saw this train waiting for departure as I travelled by the Berliner S-Bahn (suburban system) through Schöneweide-Betriebsbahnhof, a station only built for the workers of the depot Schöneweide and the nearby S-Bahn workshop. I left the S-Bahn in Adlershof, walked over the the bridge over the six lane road which leads to the motorway and hid in the bushes nearby until I saw an infernal hefty departure of this tender first hauled freight train. The bridge vibrated under the heavily working Kriegslok. Soon after I took the shot I rushed back to the S-Bahn and left, before anyone could asked questions about the why and whom for ... Taken the shot I thought I'll never look at it again - it was tender first and the weather was the typical grey and wet March weather. But with the distance of more than 30 years things look different and I'm happy that I decided to go for a tender first train!
