Hallo, dear readers,

is it really only a week ago, since I´am back at the homebase from Montenegro?:

Standby On KL And The F100 By Montenegro Airlines (by FLIEGER67 Oct 6 2012 in Trip Reports)

It is, very close to the main summer vacation time and that means more travels ahead.

And there are, also in Germany, lot´s of new things to explore, definitely!.
For example a new departure airport, ok, ok, nothing else expected!.
Do you know, that the whole country is well covered by the almighty Deutsche Bahn and it´s reliable, ever ontime and never overprized ICE and IC long distance trains?.
The whole country?.
Sure, as long as you don´t have a view for the far northeastern part of Germany.
Here is the, by the time, one and only long distance train service running in direct competition with the Deutsche Bahn.
So expect some planes, trains and ships here.
Interesting?.

Well, that´s the route map for the weekend:



Provided as usual and with thanx to:

http://www.gcmap.com/

These are the latest done routes:

The first 200 departure airports:

And the new one counted with no. 223:

And this is, well nothing else expected again, an as early as possible Saturday morning departure!.

Ten examples are in the actual fleet and this one is delivered new at 10.11.2008

The load is 70% this early morning, no suits to see
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/MNE1201/D1203/D1203012.jpg
Cockpit crew is from Germany, the pilot with a short welcome after boarding is completed and short again during approach later on.
No route info. Flightlevel is 23000 feet.
By surprise we´re doing a short cut for a "Zero-Seven" departure against all the other movements running at "Two-Five".
But the Dash is really quick to leave this place.
Forward view

Hiking anyone?

Service AB style together with free drinks
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/MNE1201/D1203/D1203016.jpg
Turning for Berlin, TXL also this time
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/MNE1201/D1203/D1203017.jpg
Somedays, who knows really when, should I try these airport

City view with the former Tempelhof airfield in the middle

Touchdown at the good 'ol 3023 meters "Two-Six-Right". 12 degrees, partly cloudy, but anyway
the weather looks like much better in Berlin today than in Stuttgart
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/MNE1201/D1203/D1203020.jpg
Under the wing, you know
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/MNE1201/D1203/D1203021.jpg
The TXL bus shuttled us for the main train station.
The fare 2.30 Euro´s and 2.40 Euro´s
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/MNE1201/D1203/D1203022.jpg
Where we spent some time in the warm sun to spot the movements
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/MNE1201/D1203/D1203023.jpg
By the way, much more time than expected here. This trip is originally booked for BER with more time to connect from the outskirts to the main train station.
Any idea what is behind these german flag in the distance?.
Ok, ok, the place where the boss, also when it is a woman this time, spent our hard earned money
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/MNE1201/D1203/D1203024.jpg
That´s the most interesting movement, coming in all the way from Russia via Belarus and Poland
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/MNE1201/D1203/D1203025.jpg
Really oldfashioned equipment
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/MNE1201/D1203/D1203026.jpg
Some clouds coming up
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/MNE1201/D1203/D1203027.jpg
Done these ride some time ago
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/MNE1201/D1203/D1203028.jpg
Down for the very ground floor it is now.
This is the Interconnex long distance service running from Leipzig via Berlin to Rostock.
Competition is good for the customers, so it seems. The fare 10.00 Euro´s only per pax
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/MNE1201/D1203/D1203030.jpg
And when you leave the basement you´re soon thereafter in the wide, nowadays less populated Eastern German countryside.
And as far as I like it to fly above, it´s my second love to ride it on the train
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/MNE1201/D1203/D1203031.jpg
Close to Waren-Müritz and the thousand lakes
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/MNE1201/D1203/D1203032.jpg
Well, there is someone up there who makes the decisions.
This is an all eco service, no first class on offer.
Seats are selected by the system.
And where are we seated?.
It´s a leased in train from the Nord-Ostsee-Bahn
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/MNE1201/D1203/D1203034.jpg
The very last carriage is first class on the NOB equipment and imagine who has the very last row?

By now to the NOB, wait, sorry, Interconnex!
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/MNE1201/D1203/D1203037.jpg
Heading for the hotel by public transport, of course.
The daily ticket, free to go on all services is 4.60, 3.30 Euro´s.
The tram shows us the way for Rostock Apartments.
This is not a cheap place with 120.00 Euro´s B&B, but worth it, close to the main place
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/MNE1201/D1203/D1203042.jpg
It´s a fully equiped property with a separate living room

How to spend the remaining day in Rostock?.
3.40 and 2.40 Euro´s later we´re in Bad Doberan,
to ride another special service, the fare 8.00 and 6.00 Euro´s.
What about scheduled on an steam engine train?
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/MNE1201/D1203/D1203064.jpg
This is "Molli" running as far as Kühlungsborn at the Baltic coastline
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/MNE1201/D1203/D1203057.jpg
And believe it or not, they are operating beside these original historic engines a some five years ago only, new built steam machine. The very first new built steam engine in Germany after lot´s of years, manufactured by DB´s Dampflokwerk Meiningen
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/MNE1201/D1203/D1203060.jpg

Good this time, that my german language skills are so basic!
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/MNE1201/D1203/D1203047.jpg
3.40 and 2.50 Euro´s later and we are

A new day, new adventures?.
What about a visit to one of the most recommended seaside towns, Warnemünde?.
By the train of course and this is also a cruise ship harbour with the rides around the Baltic sea
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/MNE1201/D1203/D1203067.jpg
Let´s take a sunny seat, protect you from the sunburn at the harbour entrance and have a view to the movements, isn´t it?.
Something rusty coming in
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/MNE1201/D1203/D1203068.jpg
Scandlines, that sounds like from Scandinavia

Different types of ships around
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/MNE1201/D1203/D1203071.jpg

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/MNE1201/D1203/D1203078.jpg
But anyway, it´s the "Eurodam"
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/MNE1201/D1203/D1203079.jpg
There is also a rusty Maltese registered Pullmantur cruiser docked

This one looks like better

This looks like typical hanseatic style
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/MNE1201/D1203/D1203105.jpg
Time now for more flying, isn´t it?.
There is a very less frequently running bus shuttle for the airport, but anyway fitting for our departure later on.
The fare 8.20 Euro´s per pax.

Hi again Markus.

Wow, Rostock, your travel destinations are getting more and more exotic these days   ...

Anyway a cool little father-son-trip you have put together here, nice variety of means of transport, well done.

Interesting to see that AB flies the Walter Dash on the route to TXL, I would have expected something bigger on that route (isn't it operated by a 737-700 usually?).

Also nice to see the pictures of this steam train ride. Love it how the train runs through the city streets there.

Pretty impressive terminal building in RLG, given the amount of traffic is has. They even have glass airbridges, nice.

Great to see the Baltic Sea from the German side, it looks like a very interesting place to go one day.
I really like the mini tram heading in town and the Rostock harbor. Scenery looks pretty great as well
AB, 4U and DB looks like they pleased you. However the croissant is a bit small IMO on the STR-TXL leg.

great report of a nice weekend out of town. Well, it seems you're away a lot of times lately. Good to follow your ride on the trains via Berlin also.
