Freights used to rule the Railway
52 8104 and 52 8037 double headed the freight train 54206 from Löbau to Bautzen, which was banked by a third class mate, 52 8064. The train reached a length that the leading locomotives needed to stand ahead of the semaphore, already on a switch. On the right hand you can see 52 8138 with the local freight train 65233 which went on the branch line to Niedercunnersdorf, scheduled departure 19.28, just eleven minutes after the main line freight train. It needed some luck to get these two trains in the same picture, because usually the through train 54204 was so long that it stood under the road bridge the picture was taken from.
