Walking in the loose gravel left behind
after the tracks were removed is very tiring so I try walking on the footpath
which constantly runs parallel to the railroad. It is no success though.
as it is often blocked by low hanging branches and fallen trees and it has
a lot of steep ascent and descents. At least the weather improved, at the
end of the day my clothes were almost dry.
Station Lampaden (km 21.9). In front a small
heap of bits of wood which were placed between the track and the crosstie.
This area is very quiet, there are no major
towns and busy roads nearby
Next day. A stone archbridge across the
railroad at +/- km 25.8 Hard to imagine why they went through so much trouble
for a hardly used road.
And a view of the grassy trackbed from above.
It was raining again. I took shelter under the bridge for a while but it
was of no use, as it kept raining for most of the day.
Another roadbridge, this one at station
Zerf (+/- km 26.7)
At Zerf the railway line makes another 90
degree turn, now to the north-east
Near the bridge at +/- km 30.4. No paved
roads nearby, only woodland. Nice and quiet, though the weather was terrible
Bahnhof Schillingen (+/- km 33.5) is now
a parking lot for employees of the local factory.
