EK Special 143: Die DB vor 25 Jahren 1996 - Ausgabe West

4 In Stock

Part of the long-running Eisenbahn Kurier series of publications taking a nostalgic look at the railways of Germany 25 years ago. This volume examines the railways of the former West Germany in 1996, covering broadly the area operated by Deutsche Bundesbahn immediately prior to German re-unification.

The volume describes and illustrates key events that took place during the year and general changes to both passenger and freight traffic. It features intercity and urban railways, as well as taking a look at locomotive and rolling stock developments during the year.

1996 saw several new traction types appear on Germany's railways, including the rollout of the successful Class 101 electric locomotives and the problematic Class 611 multiple units. The double-deck Class 670 railcars also entered service during 1996 on several rural lines.

EK Special 143: DB vor 25 Jahren – 1996: Ausgabe West uses a tried and tested formula to review the events in the former DB-operated area of Germany, using high quality colour illustrations throughout. It also includes a full list of all locomotives and multiple units that were new or withdrawn from stock during 1996, and a chronology of railway accidents and mishaps that occurred in the year. German text. 98 pages
