As I uploaded this picture, I wrote into the "Comments to Screeners" field: I know this image is backlit. But it is a very rare chance to spot an international sleeper on this scenic route...

And the picture has been accepted!

Great scene, think it would/should have been accepted without comment but that is good idea - I see non-electrified line? and many sleeper routes have been dropped so not that common?

Going from Munich to Zurich via Vienna?? rough on the geography but seems like a good detour but likely reading it wrong.
