Mit der Eisenbahn uber die Elbe (EK)

3 In Stock

During the early years of the railways in Germany, the city of Hamburg posed a huge challenger to railway builders, due to being located to the north of the River Elbe. To cross the Elbe, several impressive bridges have been built over the years, allowing the railway to reach the city of Hamburg, rather than terminating to the south of the Elbe at Harburg.

This book traces the expansion of the railway into Hamburg and covers each of the Elbe bridges in turn. The situation prior to the opening of the first bridge is also covered.

Over 200 archive black & white and more recent colour photographs illustrate the development of railway transport across the River Elbe over the last 150 years. German text. Hardback. 128 pages.
