Deutschland 83

Has anyone else watched this? I enjoyed it. Not just because of some of the 80s tunes and great classic cars though there was a nice 1303 in a petrol station scene, a Fiat Strada kept popping up for brief glimpses, a nice white Karmann Ghia too along with lots of Trabbies, an Iltis that popped up fa...

Re: The 5th Emergency Service?

Re: Look after the remnant!

e:(
Thanks for sharing Roland but not good! I bet it wasn't repaired as it looks to have bent too many panels. Do you have any info on what happened to it next? As you say, these few remaining older buses need looking after, I wonder how many are left in service now?

Re: Loo seat

Nice one Roland! It doesn't appear to be UK line currently but I'm sure it will come round! I did see a rather nice bench grinder/linisher at the usual decent prices (:D https://cdn.aldi-digital.co.uk/Bench-Grinder-and-Belt-Sander-A.jpg?o=ODE%40l7h1jfB0lRncsc8nr6k6alYj&V=h6sz&w=960&h=1200&p=2&q=38

Great location, good cafe and interesting displays in the bunker itself, a mix of original features and fittings and displays o...

Re: KatS Datasheets - Typenblatt

Updated all of the datasheet links as the files had been moved since this was originally posted. Also added explanations of the group types and functions and sample pics from the datasheets to make identification of these types easier. /\:) (:D
