Strictly speaking, I am bending the rules here as this was taken on the same day as the photo for week 16 – and not only that: It was earlier in the day. Still, this photo of a group of … well, what: Children? Young adults? Youths? … leaving church after their confirmation was too good not to use for the theme “transition”.
Week 15: Open theme
Class MP and its bigger sister Class MG should have been the workhorses of the long-distance railway traffic in Denmark. Instead, the Italian-made train sets are by now the biggest scandal ever in Danish public transport.
The train sets were originally planned to enter full service i 2006 (!) but DSB is still struggling with getting them into regular service.
This Class MP is operating the regional Odense-Fredericia line.

Design can also be a legacy. Sir Alec Issigonis’s designs for Austin and Morris from the 1950s and 1960s are classics and still stand out today. And when I was a kid, British cars were everywhere on Danish streets – one of my parents’ friends owned a Morris 1100 (known as the Morris Marina in Denmark) so seeing one definitively brought back memories.
PS: Note the 007 in the registration number! (The plate is a legacy black one, by the way)
