From Bussang in France to Koblenz in Germany, the rivre Moselle (to give its French spelling) swells from a trickling stream to become one of the great commercial waterways of Europe. A wide variety of railways follow its tortuous route. Unfortunately the remote line which followed the infant stream from its source closed some time ago but from Remiremont through Nancy, Metz, Thionville, and Trier to its confluence with the Rhine in Koblenz, railways are never far away from the river.
Many know the River Moselle as one of the central European bodies of water from a commercial standpoint, but all too often overlooked are the beautiful lands that immediately surround it, as it winds its way from Bussang, France to Koblenz, Germany - a distance of roughly 258 miles. Although the railway line closest to the Moselle has since shut down, a number of alternate lines still exist and continue to run on a regular basis, running through such cities as Metz, Thionville, Trier and Nancy. This travel-themed release transports the viewer on a trip down several of the said lines, and thus provides a unique and up-close view of the adjacent countryside.
