Photographer's Note

Essen Central Station (Hauptbahnhof) is situated south of the old town centre, next to the A 40 motorway. It was opened in 1862 by the Bergisch-Märkische Eisenbahn. The station suffered extensive damage in World War II and was almost completely rebuilt in the 1950s and 1960s. Today it is an important hub between local, regional and long-distance services, with all major InterCityExpress and InterCity trains calling at the station as well as RegionalExpress and Rhein-Ruhr S-Bahn services. Trains of all kinds call at the station, from long distance to local services. Night services are offered by EuroNight trains to cities such as Moscow or Brussels, and DB NachtZug trains to Zurich and Vienna, among others. Some 400 trains pass the station each day, making Essen Hauptbahnhof the third busiest railway station in the Ruhr Area after Dortmund Hauptbahnhof and Duisburg Hauptbahnhof.Below the station there is an underground station on two levels serving the trams and the Essen Stadtbahn. It has an unusual appearance with its pervasive blue light. A pedestrian tunnel at the eastern end of the platforms also allows passage from central Essen to Südviertel...
