blown away

Tuesday, June 1st, 2010

Sadly, the shortest railway tunnel in Germany is history. For almost 150 years, it has been a landmark on the main railway line between Nuremberg and Regensburg. Our short-sighted society with economic interests as a leading principle was not willing to cover the 25000 Euros annually to maintain the cosy tunnel. 11000 tons of rubble have to be removed from the tracks until Monday to allow trains to use the line again. Commuters will miss the split-second shadow and close their books just before arriving in Regensburg.
