Train passengers patiently waiting for their train to arrive. Even in Germany, trains don't always run on schedule ....

Captured with the legendary Nikkor 8.5 cm f/2 (S-mount), by the way. Munich.

A commuter train slowing speed before its arrival at a small station north of Oslo, Norway. End of December and with the season comes very low light, so using the Df with a 600/5.6 Nikkor on a sturdy tripod was the only sensible approach. I had to wait until the train nearly had come to a complete stop, though, otherwise the image would just be a big blur of movement.

Interior of an Austrian commuter train, arriving at Landeck-Zams, Austria. Very posh, but obviously not taken during peak hours ...

Don't let the peaceful surroundings of the previous image fool you - all of a sudden, a train can appear :D

Nah, not really. More like The Setskog (this being a geographical location and name of the adjacent municipality).
