Ich bin ein Berliner

I’ll be a Berliner, just for a day … joining the fellow railway engineers from around the world at InnoTrans 2016.

InnoTrans is the largest rail industry event in the world, held every two years in Germany, at Messe Berlin – ExpoCenter City.

Sub-divided into the five segments Railway Technology, Railway Infrastructure, Public Transport, Interiors and Tunnel Construction, InnoTrans occupies all 41 halls of the Berlin Exhibition Grounds.

In 2014, 55 countries were represented at InnoTrans by the 2761 exhibitors. There were a total of 135 595 trade visitors from 146 countries.

This year 2955 exhibitors from 60 countries presented their products and services and the exhibition, says Railway Gazette,  attracted 145 000 trade visitors to Berlin – two of them in the last photo below.

Here are a few pictures from this too short trip in a Railway heaven:
