Seehas Railway in front of the council building

The Seehas Railway is a rail link between Konstanz and Engen. The name doesn’t derive from the existing fish ‘Seehase‘ (lumpsucker), but from a fabulous creature supposed to live in the western part of Lake Constance. People there believe the ‘Seehas’ is a hybrid of a rabbit and a fish. [German]

At the photo above the ‘Seehas’ is passing a famous place in Constance: The Council Building (Konzilgebäude). In this building Martin V was elected pope in 1417.
