Hi all,

I've just passed an order with Amazon.de for the following books (in German):

So funktioniert der Eisenbahnbetrieb
Modellbahn-Betriebswerke: Vorbild und Modell
Modellbahn-Zugbildung: Vom Vorbild zum Modell
Epoche III: Die 50er und 60er-Jahre in der Modellbahn
Das große TEE-Buch. 50 Jahre Trans-Europ-Express
TEE - Ikone der Luxuszüge
Krokodil: Königin der Elektrolokomotiven
Dampflokomotiven Am Ende einer Epoche

Can anyone recommend other books that you may have found interesting?
Thanks,
Best regards,
Armando García

My bible: Das Große Loktypenbuch.

This is just an amazing book. Everything you need to know about every single DR/DB/DB AG locomotive ever made.

I also own pocket editions of the books:
- Wagen (Reisezug- und Güterwagen der Deutschen Bahn) Every coach and wagon from DB AG
- DB-Fahrzeuge (Lokomotiven und Triebwagen) similar to loktypenbuch, but only DB AG

Best regards

I agree, "das grosse Loktypenbuch" is a valuable source for information about locomotives.

I myself buy now and then a book about a specific type, e.g the last one I bought is about the BR 39 (EK Verlag)

Is there by any chance an English equivalent or translation of "Das Große Loktypenbuch"?

I'm happy with anything by Joef Brandl, a fine master modeller. Unfortuantly all in German.

Hi Steven

Thanks for the translation, but what I was really asking is whether there is an English edition of that book or a similar book in English. biggrin

Nope, well, at least I have not found one. I have been searching for one, but no luck so far. I have been thinking of writing one myself. Smile

Well, not exactly so. Have you checked this out:

http://www.amazon.de/Fas...id=1250192815&sr=8-1

"Fast wie echt, Almost Real", in both German and English.
