Düsseldorf-Gerresheim

 

The Power Signal Box of Düsseldorf-Gerresheim is locked in between Wuppertal-Vohwinkel and Düsseldorf Hbf. It is a box of the type “Sp Dr S 600”. This is a further development of the German Railways after the succesful Sp Dr S 60 type. The Sp Dr S 600 type of boxes provide more functionality and safety for the dispatchers.

Düsseldorf-Gerresheim is a very busy crossing point. Besided all the traffic from Wuppertal-Vohwinkel, the Euregiobahn Railway crosses the lines too. This makes it a real puzzle a couple of times per hour…
