TTR007 German Railways part 1 the south

In stock, immediate despatch
Ten years since the fall of the Berlin wall and the beginning of the huge German re-unification project with money poured into new infrastructure or equipment, now  bearing fruit!  From Cologne we travel to the Swiss border and across to Austria and the Czech Republic. We look at the Rhein, still the major freight and passenger artery - but not for much longer- and view the trains which pass day and night in this international corridor. On to the financial capital- Frankfurt, the hub of the InterCity passenger business, with a local transport network of breathtaking efficiency. The route of the high speed line which will link Köln and Frankfurt is examined from the air and the ground. On to Ludwigshafen to look at German rail freight, a short hop to Karlsruhe, the city which pioneered the concept of running trams on main lines, and to the beautiful city of Freiburg where passenger and freight traffic stream past on their way to Switzerland. As an indulgence we lunch at the Feldschlossen brewery, just in Switzerland, before heading for the Bodensee. Across holiday Germany to the capital of Bavaria-Munich. Munich is Germany's favourite city and we show you why! Time to look at the international passenger and freight traffic heading for Austria then on to Regensburg and Würzburg. Back through Stuttgart to look at "Star 21" and across to Saarbrücken where we ride the Bombardier trams. You will see the very latest technology, ICT tilting trains, double deck commuter stock, modern freight vehicles and class 101 locomotives plus some old favourites like the class 103, the icon of the German Railways in the 1970s.
