Otze, Vöhrum, Kirchhorsten, Löhne (Westf)

My journey is continuing through Hamburg-Hannover railway, now I'm at the Lehrte-Celle branch 
The Lehrte–Celle railway is the mainline in the east of the Hanover Region in Germany. It links the railway hub of Lehrte with the town of Celle, where it connects to the present-day Hanover–Hamburg railway. Until the opening of the "Hare Railway" (Hasenbahn) from Langenhagen to Celle on 15 May 1938 and its upgrade to double tracks in 1964 and electrification in 1965 it was itself part of this long-distance route. Today it serves the north-south goods trains and is also used by the S 6 and S 7 trains of the Hanover S-Bahn from Hanover to Celle. (Wikipedia)
I'm at at Otze station

Named after Jim Button and Luke the Engine Driver (German: Jim Knopf und Lukas der Lokomotivführer), it is a children's novel written by Michael Ende. The main characters are Emma the steam locomotive, her driver Luke (Lukas), and the young accomplice Jim Button (Jim Knopf) who together go on an adventure. The story begins and ends on the small fictional island of Morrowland (Lummerland).
