One of the most beautiful train stations along this line is definitely Eichenberg
192 104, EGP
After the end of World War II, Eichenberg was a border station. Here there were controls between the British and American zone until 1 November 1948, when they were abolished to the north (in the British zone); a year later, they were also abolished to the south (in the U.S. zone). Rail services between Eichenberg and Arenshausen (in the Russian zone) were closed. A re-opening of the line was rejected by the western authorities because Eichenberg station was congested due to the controls. Under the Helmstedt agreement of 1949, the line would have been re-opened, but this was not implemented. The tracks between Eichenberg and Arenshausen were dismantled in 1948. In 1989, the Eichenberg–Arenshausen line became one of the first lines to be selected for reopening over the Inner German border. (Wikipedia)

Looks like a heavy train
Tonight I'm staying in Hannover
The next morning I was supposed to take the route to Hamburg where I would fly to Stockholm, unfortunately, I will find out that my flight is canceled due to a strike. I'm able to re-plan my trip back from Dusseldorf, but of course, all my plans for this day will crash.
But I will at least enjoy a little bit of sun today
Parked TX Logistik train
I must say that even with the strike and a new flight booking on short notice, I got compensated for my expenses.
