Feeling the Underpass

Yesterday was a day to slowly meander around Berlin. I took my time and moved without a real sense of purpose. Later in the day I came across a train underpass that seem to have it all. It was surrounded by trees, distant construction, cyclists rolling by, and several different trains moving over head. There is even a distant street trolley somewhere in there:

At first glance the location seemed like it would be relatively quiet, but once 5pm hit, there was an influx of activity. I was drawn to the location because the different trains had a lovely mid-range quality to them. Even the brake squeals seems relatively mild-mannered.
