Bye, bye Karlsruher Kopf

I didn't know it at the time, but when I visited the Murrbahn last September, I witnessed the last runs of the "Karlsruhe" cab cars. Due to the relative non-importance of the Murrbahn Deutsche Bahn ran really old equipment here that had been pretty much withdrawn in the rest of Germany. By the end of September the "Karlsruhe" cars were retired as somewhat newer train sets were moved to the Murrbahn.
Had I known, I would have paid a bit more attention to these cars. I only have photos with these cab cars at the rear in the shadow. Kind of fits the situation, though.

There will be a lot of change in the coming years as regional passenger train service around Stuttgart is transitioning to new providers.
