Only a bit further the line was above the
The highway A44 crosses the railroad and
a small country road on a viaduct. A guardrail makes sure there can be collision
between the vehicles on this busy road (which ends here) and the heavy railtraffic.
Just visible on the right is a kilometerstone.
Not far past the viaduct is halting-place
Titz. The platform can still be found just before the former railroad crossing.
I guess these houses have a railroadhistory
too, as they are build parallel to the railroad which crossed the road here.
Maybe a former "Gasthaus" (inn),
a nice ruin now anyway.
Past the road a cobblestone road is hidden
beneath the grass. This can be followed for a bit...

The gap in the gates and my topographic
map both suggest there was a footpath between this roadcrossing and station
Titz once, though it is now blocked by nature's verion of barbed wire.
The bridge across a country road near Ameln
has disappeared but the bridge heads are still in good condition. Reconstruction
of the road on the other (west) side of the railroad for the expanding village
Ameln seems not to have threatened it.
|From this point the railroad can be relatively easily followed as local
kids use it as playground and this way keep a path open. Further on a cut
has been made through the railroad dam for a road to access a deep gravelpit.
After this point the trees have grown so large that the undergrowth is relatively
easy to get through
