The Lufthansa Airport Express (Frankfurt - Duesseldorf)

(~1987)

 

In former years, Lufthansa operated an express train between the two airports on the tracks of the German Federal Railroad. Many tourists prefered the train along the beautiful valley of the river Rhine instead of flying the short distance. The train was unique in its coloring and service. Today, cars in an ordinary Intercity Express are used, which are unfortunately much less significant and interesting.

In these pictures, the train is waiting for departure in the basement of the Frankfurt Rhein-Main Airport.
