About dreamy sceneries and almost expected breakdowns ...

If you're an early riser you'll often be lucky enough to capture some endearing and worthwhile impressions of the day that had gone for good without paying any great attention if you wouldn't have been up that early (even though it's supposed to be a relaxing Saturday).
 
When I was on my way to meet some friends of mine that day I did enjoy some welcome harbingers of a pretty autumn day.
The temperatures were slightly below the freezing point so that the air was absolutely clear and after two or three deep breaths you were totally awake, for sure!  
Going by train the view over the harvested fields, which were covered with a billowing veil of mist to the horizon was truly likable. ... The golden sunbeams that slowly hatched out and blinded with an nearly forgotten intensity and the light-blue sky announced a truly nice day. It should become a fab day! ...
 
Okay, were was the hatch? Of course, travelling by Deutsche Bahn took care of this, no real surprise, though. It's always an 'uplifting' feeling to hear the Deutsche Bahn staff announcing a new inconvenience - today our unpredictable (but almost expected) stop was caused by a defect catenary, hear, hear! - Yeah, I'd have won the bet (as always)! Well, it would have been just too great (but obviously impossible) to make this trip in one go. Four minutes (by train) before arriving the final station numberless passengers had to hop out and take the tram for the last couple of metres. Good thing I wasn't in such a rush as weekdays.
 
As you see, joy and sorrow of travelling often stick together like pitch and brimstone!

You could all have got off and pushed the train for the last wee bit :-D

Haste and profit have killed the solid quality of trains.
