  1. Somehow this excellent photo reminds me of a terrible old joke.

    One hobo turns to another and says, “I’m looking for Mr. Rockafeller.” The second hobo says, “Are you getting any closer?” and the first hobo replays, “I don’t know, but I’m on his tracks.”

    Sorry about that. I really do like both your picture and quote.

  2. LOL – the joke matches the photo perfectly … I can see the first hobo looking up and down the track. It’s midday. The sun is glaring. And after some seconds he says: I don’t know, but I’m on his tracks

    Of course in Germany until recently there was only the state-owned railroad company … hm … don’t think this would have been a problem for Mr. Rockefeller, though …
