Looks like a lonely job, but sailing under a sky as dramatic as that might make up for it
Nice image Fons

A ferry from 1952 named M/F Broen - now a piece of history and was "dry docked" on ground in 2020 close to where it sailed on the Storebælt strait between the Danish isles Sjælland and Fyn until 1966. Taken out of service 1992.   
Interesting! I didn't know they put it there. I see it's worth a photo stop at some point ;) Thank you

Thanks Erik - yes, it is worth a stop - I only had time for a few snapshots. It's close to the bridge and the small ice boat museum that is also worth a visit (I think they are closing the museum for the winter).

Very nice Øivind - it's almost like being there and it seems to be a relaxing trip :)

Thanks Lars. Below is an image of the train with its powerful, noisy diesel engine. The train is aimed at tourists, going very slowly and slows down at a number of points of interest like this view of Denali (North America's highest mountain) and its neighbor Mount Hunter.
