Wikipedia: "Eingesetzt werden Doppelstockwagen bevorzugt auf Regional-Express-Linien mit hoher Fahrgastdichte und mittleren bis langen Halteabständen. Auch mehrere S-Bahnen in Ostdeutschland fahren mit Doppelstockwagen (S-Bahn Leipzig-Halle, S-Bahn Dresden, S-Bahn Rostock, S-Bahn Magdeburg), allerdings widerspricht dieser Einsatz strenggenommen der Definition der S-Bahn, da nur sehr wenige, relativ schmale Türen zur Verfügung stehen und das hohe Gewicht einer zügigen Beschleunigung hinderlich ist. Der Einsatz von Doppelstockwagen auf S-Bahnlinien hat eher traditionelle Gründe, da in der DDR Doppelstockwagen vorwiegend zur Bewältigung des sehr starken Berufsverkehrs eingesetzt wurden. Im Nahverkehr waren die Platzverhältnisse der Doppelstockwagen ausreichend. Seit der Abschaffung des Interregio kompensieren Regional-Express-Züge jedoch auch den Bedarf ehemaliger Fernverkehrslinien. Dazu fehlen den Doppelstockwagen Ablagemöglichkeiten für Gepäck. Rucksäcke und Reisetaschen müssen auf Sitzplätzen oder im Gang abgestellt werden, da die Ablageflächen oberhalb der Sitzplätze Bauart bedingt sehr klein ausfallen. Die Eignung der gegenwärtigen Doppelstockwagen für Regional-Express-Linien ist daher nicht unumstritten."

This panorama was taken in Germany

This is an overview of Germany

Germany? Before the beginning there was Ginnungagap, an empty space of nothingness, filled with pure creative power. (Sort of like the inside of my head.)

And it ends with Ragnarok, the twilight of the Gods. In between is much fighting, betrayal and romance. Just as a good Godly story should be.

Heroes have their own graveyard called Valhalla. Unfortunately we cannot show you a panorama of it at this time, nor of the lovely Valkyries who are its escort service.

Hail Odin, wandering God wielding wisdom and wand! Hail Freya, hail Tyr, hail Thor!

Odin made the many lakes and the fish in them. In his traverses across the lands he caused there to be the Mulheim Bridge in Cologne, as did he make the Mercury fountain, Mercury being of his nature.

But it is to the mighty Thor that the Hammering Man gives service.

Between the time of the Nordic old ones and that of modern Frankfort there may have been a T.Rex or two on the scene. At least some mastodons for sure came through for lunch, then fell into tar pits to become fossils for us to find.

And there we must leave you, O my most pure and holy children.
