    Thanks for sharing this album...The caption beneath the photo of the train reads: "So leb' denn wohl du schone Senne"--"So fare thee well, you beautiful Senne"...
    When I was 12 years old and growing up in Germany, I once spent 3 weeks in the hospital--The patient next to me was a Weimar-era Reichswehr and Wehrmacht Veteran...He showed me the little black specks of shrapnel still embedded in his leg and related to me many stories of his "Dienstzeit"...
    cheers Glenn
