A pair of Harz-Elbe Express (HEX) Desiro DMUS at Quedlinburg on the 19th of September 2017. Built by Siemens, these 2-section articulated DMUs of class 642 are in widespread use with DB Regio. The left-hand unit is heading to its terminus at Thale and so has its front auto-coupler covered. The right-hand unit is heading to its terminus at Magdeburg but its rear auto-coupler is uncovered, as it will form the front part of the combined train when it joins with the set from Halle at Halberstadt. Quedlinburg is also one end of the 1000 mm gauge Harzer Schmalspur-bahnen system (this part originally the Gernrode-Harzgerode-Eisenbahn). With thanks to Bill Jamieson for locomotive information.
