Looks like a snowplow to me. It looks very similar like some US models I have seen. It looks really cool. Almost like Steam Punk BigGrin

I agree, the wagon behind the snowplow I suspect is a tank that can be filled with water or some other suitable heavy material so the train has sufficient mass to provide enough momentum to help the plow through the snow when it is deep.

I'm gonna have to go to the museum to say that the plug is filled with water, and it's hard enough to do this?

Until the 1980s there was a industrial RR network existing in Hamburg-Ottensen (behind the Hamburg-Altona terminus so to speak).

Pre-dominantly narrow gauge (1000 mm), some parts were (as I just learned) also normal gauge. Single freight cars or short cuts of them were hauled - on rails - by a tow truck driving on tarmac.

A lengthy but entertaining photo stream commences below the one page blahblablah:

https://xn--ig-historisc.../Ottenser-Industriebahn/

After the story with normal gauge freight cars on narrow gauge substitute trucks follows chapter 3 with the standard gauge images at the very end.

Class 62 passenger train tank locomotives developed by Henschel for the DR in the 1920s. DB service of this "short class 01" ended in 1956 and DRG service ended in 1972. After the end of DB service, a DRG class 62 could still be seen on DB tracks in Luebeck when pulling an "Interzonenzug".

I recently fell over this thing. It´s even from my own hometown, and I was never aware of it until now;
(Elsinore, Denmark)

https://www.jernbanen.dk/Fotos/Pbane/HHGB/HHGB_Dampvogn_1924.jpg


This excellent website states;
Quote:
Steam wagon. 'The banana'. Wagon box made of steel (the first in Denmark). Machine bogie wheelbase 2.13 m. Running bogie wheelbase 1.68 m. 59 places. Aisle. Ran in the summer of 1925 and 26 as the rolling house painted in half-timbered Grønnehave - Hellebæk. Set aside 1930. Decommissioned and broken up 1940. Wagon box set up as a summer house in Helsingør.

A related DSO forum post clarifies:

Brake locomotive was 218 362 and the two heating cars also had the necessary weight.

("Bremslok war 218 362 und die zwei Heizwagen hatten auch das nötige Gewicht.")

By the way, from further contributions in the thread I conclude that the photos date to about 1972.
