Now to the Erfurt - Ebensfeld section, which is far more spectacular, as it crosses the Thüringer Wald mountains.

Büchen is on the main line Hamburg - Berlin, Lauenburg is not on it.

Lauenburg is directly on the Elbe river, while Büchen is just on the Elbe-Lübeck-Kanal, so should not be at risk.

A German loco, likely now used by an Italian railway construction/maintenance company, being transported on the A1 Bologna-Milano on 8 May 2013:

edit: it had been idle in Bologna San Ruffillo sation (on the Bologna-Firenze line) for some year together with its sister 202 505, and has been used during the construction of the parallel high speed line.

Some URLs are (temporary?) banned because of that, so you have to copy and paste the URL in a new window removing the "REMOVETHIS" part.

Why in the hell transport it over road? Isn't it simpler to send it as a part of a freight train?

It may not be capable of running at 100kph (as I can't see the image I don't know what type of locomotive it is. Is it a shunter?)

I can see the picture. Just delete "removethis" in the address just like Cocco said.
