    This book is about what we, as collectors, have seen, owned or coveted over the years - the large and attractive Reichsbahn eagles. In many cases they were the centerpieces of a collection. We may have wondered why there were different sizes and what did the various markings indicate on the reverses? Little did we know that these eagles not only adorned railway cars and passenger coaches, but also Reichsbahn busses, trucks, automobiles, and steam and electric locomotives. Using this book, you will now know the manufacturer of the eagle, its exact purpose, and its metal composition. There is a chapter on the evolution and manufacturing variations of metal Reichsbahn cap eagles. The book is also loaded with eagle details (front and back). There are numerous detailed photographs of various engine types and railway cars in use, plus many portraits of Reichsbahn personnel. If you have an interest in German railroads, this is the book for you.

    • Large format 8 1/2 x 11" (21.5 x 27.9 cm): 256 pages
    • About 675 photos of actual eagles and close-ups, plus original technical drawings • $79.95 (postage not included)
    • Available in late February 2016 from Bender Publishing, San Jose, California
    • The first 200 copies will be author-signed and serial numbered

    Just for WRF-members, enjoy:

    I know, but one has to wait anyway until late February.
    Hope there won't be another delay, otherwise it will be March!
