35 1,097-1 about to couple up to the train check out the crazy coupling system !.
June 5, 2012
ok this one slipped in on me out of order this was the 35 1,097-1 about to couple to us to start a series of switch moves at Chemnits Haibersdorf Germany we were being reassembeled as a train with this engine for the run back to Dresden I was allways Amazed at the coupling system over in Germany it seems a turnbuckle system wouldnt work but it does here it appears to work well this sort of reminded me of one of many American brakeman being between the train with a link and pin but here they have a buffer for safety so he appears to be never in any harm I assumed this was just on the old trains but was informed this is systemwide in Germany and probilly other parts of Europe
