Das Maschinenamt Heilbronn Teil 2: Dienststellen und Strecken (VGB)

1 In Stock

For decades, locomotive works were among the most important institutions for German railways. Here, over two volumes, the author provides insights into the operations at Heilbronn, one of the most important locomotive works in southern Germany, where the workers ensured that the vehicles and technical equipment were always reliably maintained and available for use. The first volume provides an history of the works and examines what type of work was carried out there, whilst this second volume focuses on the locomotives which were maintained there. Together these two volumes provide a comprehensive understanding of the history, tasks and procedures of the locomotive works at Heilbronn.

In this, the second volume, the author focuses on the services undertaken in the departments at Heilbronn, and looks at the railway lines in the district. Photographs taken by several well-known German railway photographers bring alive the steam locomotive era and the time of the late Federal Railways, both in the works and at local stations. Lineside photographs show the scenic beauty and the diversity of the district of Heilbronn. Well illustrated with colour and black & white photographs and diagrams. German text. Hardback. 272 pages.
