The last day of operation for the Class 420 on the S1 line of the S-Bahn Rhein-Ruhr.
The older trains serve the Dortmund Hbf-Essen Steele Ost portion of the S1 route (Dortmund Hbf-Solingen Hbf) these days, while the newer Br 422 terminate in Bochum Hbf.
Moments before arriving at Rohr. And remember: Do not enter the tracks!
A contrast between shadows and sun over this commuter service.
An ET420 operating on the S2 line stops at Rohr.
The engineer of this train let me take this shot provided I post it on the internet. I told him:
"Kein Problem" ... he was in awe when I told him about Railpictures.net.
It was very cold and windy that morning. Inside the train though it was toasty warm.
