The Rémilly–Saarbrücken railway


Photo of Metz station on the line

I love hitting the Wikipedia random article link until something related to computers, jazz, or travel comes up. Today we got the Rémilly–Saarbrücken railway, which is:

a French and German 55-kilometre long railway line, that connects the French Lorraine region to the German city Saarbrücken. The railway was opened between 1851 and 1852. It is part of the international railway connection between Paris and Frankfurt am Main.

There’s no photo on the English Wikipedia page, but the German one included the above image by Lantus from April 2008. I’d love to go to that exact spot and take another photo now.
