I stood at the open window to enjoy the last Scandinavian impressions. We were supposed to take the branch line to Trelleborg, ferry port to Sassnitz on the island of Rügen, Germany.
Malmö suburbs went past, Malmö Syd... wait a moment... Malmö Syd? That's not the way to Trelleborg, it's the way to the Öresund Bridge!
Soon, this was also noticed by the railway staff, and we stopped. After a while the train pushed back to the junction.
This is the only time I ever have been on board a train taking the wrong line.

Finally, we arrived at the ferry terminal Trelleborg after 10:30 p.m.

The ferry still was waiting, a diesel shunter took over from the class Rc electric.

We were pushed into the interior of the ship next to trucks. I stayed in bed as it would only be dark outside during the crossing.
