Thanks, Polyesco.

I remember it clearly. Not least the details.

That twigs of fir had been scattered on the streets close to the cathedral, to lessen the sound of the horses hoves and the wheels of the carriage.
That the train was pulled by a steam locomotive.
There is a grand style over a steam locomotive that modern locomotives simply don't have.

I don't know whether it's true or not but I read somewhere that the churches of Copenhagen had been told to toll their bells until a man positioned in the tower of Copenhagen City Hall couldn't see the steam from the train anymore. Unfortunately the clear and cold weather meant that the steam was visible for miles and the bells kept on ringing and ringing.
