Description

Number three in the Dying Embers series, looking back at the decline of main line steam across Europe, focuses on West Germany in the period 1972 - 1975.

Working its way from the South East to the North West, the programme features numerous locations, including Hof, the legendary 1 in 40 Schiefe Ebene, Wurzburg, Lauda, Crailsheim, Freudenstadt, Rottweil, Ehrang, Duisburg, Hamm, Rheine and Emden - a truly nostalgic and unforgettable journey charting the final years of West German steam.

Here's just a flavour of the locomotives and types included:

  • Class 01 Pacifics working passenger trains
  • Class 50s on freight in and around Hof and at Schiefe Ebene
  • Class 23s and 50s on workings in the Stuttgart area
  • A journey behind a Prussian Class 38 from Eutingen to Freudenstadt
  • Class 23s on Saarbruckenn commuter trains
  • A visit to the Wuppertaal Schwebebahn
  • Class 50s and the austerity version Class 52s at work in the industrial Ruhr
  • A former-LMS shunter at Hamm
  • Class 12 Pacifics on passenger work
  • Class 43/44s on heavy ore trains on the Rheine-Emden line
  • And visits to numerous sheds which serviced these locomotives.
