Photographer's Note

Christmas time steam special between Berlin Lichtenberg and Potsdam passing through Berlin Wannsee station.

BR 52 'Kriegslok' was a wartime engine class that was optimized for efficient production, stripped from any fancy stuff. Over 6000 were build in many different factories between 1942 and 1945. But this class outlived it's expectations serving decades on hard work, and quite a few are preserved in working order.

Shot at ISO-800 with continuous shooting mode. Cropped from 22 mm. No colour corrections except a little saturation for the sky. Reddish tones come from sunset that this train runs against. Special thanks for Henk Meijer (Floydian) for inspiration with his panning shots.
