    One of seven locks on the Rhine-Herne Canal. Until 1967, the then non-self-propelled barges were decoupled from the canal tug and pulled by a tow locomotive through the lock chamber. The locks were needed to overcome the height differences of the canal. The lock process is always fascinating.

    Unfortunately one minute too late, otherwise the ship would still be in the lock
