• Short Summary

    Views of new design of diesel railway engine from Germany - very modern for 1932.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Germany. 93 miles per hour at times! Newest type stream-lined Diesel engined rail coach train, covers 178 miles Berlin to Hambourg (sic) in 142 minutes!"

    Germany.

    Diesel powered railway train moves out of station.

    Good views of the train as it moves along the line at speed. The engine is very modern in design - the engine and the carriage are combined in what looks like an early form of what we now call a diesel multiple unit.

    The train passes away under a bridge.

    (Natural sound track only - No commentary)

    Correct spelling for search purposes - Hamburg.

    The vehicle featured here was known as the \"Flying Hamburger\". Lots of information about it can be found here....
