Planes, Trains and Automobiles

That didn't take long, 100% correct.

This view was right above it, but that would have been too easy :
I did some checks. Must have been a '52 or earlier. The 1953-model had the oval rear window.

I was more or less raised in "Käfers", starting with the 1958 or 59-model, the first with the large rear window. The last one that my father bought was the 1303S Big. He sold it after 10+ years for more than he paid for it initially. I still miss that one.

When I lived in Enschede (from 1963 to 1982) and interested in steam trains I sometimes went to Rheine, which still had a large contingent of steam traction at that time.
I found back some negatives (probably from the early 1970's, when I was ~16 years old) of one of these visits.

Filling up with coal


All Leica IIIf + Elmar 50/3.5 (my only camera/lens at the time), Agfapan 100, probably developed in Rodinal

Those are great images! I didn't make it to BW Rheine until 2011 when the locomotives were long gone. Now the former lok depot is a ruin that's overgrown and falling apart. The rails and turntable are all gone. Only the roundhouse and a personnel building remained.

Wow, that's quite a difference, but it's also ~40 years later since my photos. I haven't been there since 1980 or even earlier I think. Is there still anything standing there today?
