From the archives of a trainspotter from Germany

This eight-part series contains more than 1 hour of authentic images from the archive of a train spotter from Germany. The recordings were made in the late 1980s and 1990s. That is why there are still footages from the GDR time. Steam locomotives were mainly filmed and as an added bonus there is a sound recording. In short, it is pure enjoyment of beautiful authentic footages from the 80s and 90s with a lot of steam from Germany!
