May be good to know then that Dortmund is the third city in Germany when it
comes to the number of train stations. This is mostly due to the multitude
of railway companies that competed for lines in the coal and steel industry

One (kinda) touristy thing to do in Dortmund is to take the "Emschertalbahn" line
which departs at nn:32. Very quaint single-track line running through residents'
back yards. Step off after 18 minutes at Bövinghausen and walk Jupiterstrasse
through a model example of miners' homes to a model example of a colliery
now made a museum (http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=de&geocode=&q=dortmund&ie=UTF8&ll=51.518584,7.331679&spn=0.007704,0.012403&t=h&z=16&iwloc=addr). 

Have a nice stay

                              One gets such wholesale returns of conjecture 
mailto:johannes at huesing.name  from such a trifling investment of fact.
