544 Reichenbach - Hof

Back In The DDR

A quarter of a century after re-unification the former East Germany still feels different to the rest of the country. It’s not the railways so much as the landscape with its huge fields, inherited from the DDR’s collective farms, narrow, tree-lined, winding roads and old industrial buildings.

143.116 rolled past a seemingly endless field of rape between Ruppertsgrün and Herlasgrün with RE 4789, the 12:27 Hof - Dresden RegioExpress, on 1 May 2016. A few years ago these services ran through from Nürnberg to Dresden but now passengers have to change at Hof on the old East - West border. Passport controls haven’t been re-introduced yet.
