Germany's High-speed Trains
Germany's High-speed Trains.
Very great changes have been witnessed in Germany in recent times, but the railways centred on Berlin have not been affected to any degree. Rumours were current some time ago that Germany proposed to withdraw from traffic the high-speed “Flying Hamburger” and similar express trains which aroused such immense interest when first introduced. Actually, some of these streamliners were withdrawn for a brief period, and their place taken by steam trains. The reason for this, however, was to allow of adjustments and renewals, and quickly the flyers were restored to regular schedule, providing some of the world's fastest passenger runs.page 25
