Fotoeins Friday: Thalys from Paris to Essen, via Cologne
29 November 2012.
Thalys train number 9437 departed at 1155am from Paris Nord, France, for its destination in Essen, Germany, via Brüssel Midi, Aachen, Köln, and Düsseldorf. Arriving at 315pm on track 3, the Thalys train is pictured here in Köln central train station, and is set to depart for Düsseldorf at the scheduled time of 325pm. Most passengers visible on the “island” platform are waiting for another train to arrive on adjacent track 2.
During my year-long RTW, I made this photo on 29 November 2012 with the Canon 450D, 18-55 kit-lens, and the following settings: 1/10-sec, f/4.5, ISO800, and 33mm focal length (53mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-ai3.

Wow, that’s pretty fast for such a long distance.

True! I’ve not yet been on-board on these high-speed trains in and out of France. Paris is possible as a “day trip” from Köln, but I suppose Paris deserves more than a few hours. 😅
