    Yes, I had seen that! But had no time to read all included text-parts.

    Great you found information and eventual evidence. Maybe the book
    will give you what you were looking for. I never did research on such
    stuff like that, as it is a subject with hardly any interest for me. I am
    more "dedicated" to uniforms and insignia! But there are lots of
    subjects that do not interest me, like orders & decorations, daggers,
    equipment, combat uniforms and such!

    Have a good cross over to 2016.

    OK in answerer to my question last week and after a little research, there appears to be quite a variety of DB numbered silverware out there from a number of special trains.

    Hitler, Goring and other Third Reich VIPs had special trains. Hitler’s train had a large staff and had two dining carts, There where two full time silver polishers on Hitler’s train.

    Tableware from wagon 244 is probably the most available of the Special train cutlery due to the large numbers required to support 14 tables with 42 seats and the fact that the wagon was in the U.S. area at the end of the war. On the other hand, since it is directly related to Hitler and the fact that Hitler's private wagon 10 206 was blown up with none of his 206 cutlery surviving, the 244 pieces do command a premium with a single tea spoon selling for well over $1000.

    Wagon 10 242 in Hitler's special train was the VIP dining wagon with a single dining table seating 15 and a lounge area with 6 easy chairs.

    For this reason not only is 242 silverware the hardest of all to find but it also commands the highest premium.

    These are now considered very rare pieces indeed when compared to the general AH silverware and are now becoming much more sort after.

    If anybody has any I would love to hear from you!

    Many thanks for your interest.

    We still have to wait. Be patient!
    Mr. Bender informed me:

    have not had the Reichsbahn book put on the website yet as I am not sure of an approximate delivery date.
    I know the book is printed, but am waiting to hear if it made it to the dock and was put on a ship. Once that
    happens we will have a 3-4 week delivery time. If the book does not make it to the dock and put on a ship
    before the Chinese New Year starts, then it will sit in a warehouse for a few weeks before the workers come
    back from their vacation. As soon as I receive a positive report that it is on its way then we will put on the
    website and work on the brochure.

    Pity, new delay!! The book did not make it to the dock and was put on a ship.
    We have to wait for shipping until the Chinese New year events are over and
    the employees have returned to the factory! Patience is a ........??

    Have just seen (today - March 11) the railroad eagle book is being advertised at Bender's website
    as "NEW BOOK".
    You can click the cover and preview some pages (some others then I showed at WRF).
