EK Themen 63: Die DB vor 25 Jahren 1996 - Ausgabe Ost

5 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 East Germany in 1996, covering broadly the area operated by Deutsche Reichsbahn 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 the continued modernisation of East Germany's railways, following the reunification of Germany in 1989. Class 628 multiple units continued their takeover from loco-hauled passenger trains on many rural and regional routes, leading to a decline in diesel locomotive operated passenger trains around the East of Germany. A review of Berlin's S-Bahn system during 1996 is also included.

EK Themen 63: DB vor 25 Jahren – 1996: Ausgabe Ost examines all of these topics and uses high quality illustrations throughout. A list of all locomotives and multiple units that were new or withdrawn from stock during 1996 is included, as well as a full list of all locos in service during the year with depot allocations. A chronology of railway accidents and mishaps during the year is also included. German text. 98 pages
