    Maybe one day - but at least it still exists to allow us to dream of a better future.

    At least it's in better condition than the collection at Falkenberg.

    If you've got a few hours/days to kill, this website lists a lot of preserved German steam locos. Their in locations are helpfully added on to Google Maps as well. They also have a few other countries being added as well. I don't know how comprehensive it is, but it certainly helped me discover a loco that I struggled to find any mention of for 10 years.

    Gosh, I never thought I'd work out where my picture of a P8 was taken, until I saw the same building in the background of your photo.

    We were staying in the caravan site on the other side of the road, in I think 1973.
