Germany: Hamburg to Magdeburg

I'm on my way for a trip to Germany
AEX train to Arlanda airport
Dinner at the airport
Some hours later, I'm in Hamburg. I don't dare to take the night train yet, it's both more expensive and takes more time 

Hamburg Barmbek station in the morning

Bienenbüttel station 

One of the most important railway in Germany and perhaps in all Europe is the Hamburg-Hannover
On December 5, 2012, Deutsche Bahn declared the Uelzen–Stelle section to be an overloaded railway.  According to a bottleneck analysis carried out by the Federal Ministry of Transport in the mid-2010s, the section between Celle and Lüneburg, in particular, was overloaded with 140 trains per day, and between Nienburg and Verden the overload was 60 trains. With a load of 126 percent, the route was considered congested in 2011; Trains have to travel at particularly narrow intervals. On a reference day (January 11, 2022), between 83 and 194 trains were counted per section and direction. In particular, a draft plan provides for a number of infrastructure measures, including new platforms, switches, and overtaking tracks. In November 2022, an updated draft of a plan to increase the railway capacity (PEK) was presented. (Wikipedia)
