Tone

Thanks for your latest input which brIngs back memories of my trainspotting days in BAOR in the 1950s

Did you ever have dealings with the special train for King Alfred School Ploen which stopped in Hamburg HBF to drop off/collect 40 or so pupils whose father's were stationed in the Hamburg area at the beginning and end of every term?

Incidentally I believe the Blue Train empty to and from Fallingbostel/Hannover in the last years of existence there being no sevicing facilities for either the locomotive or rolling stock in EFFing B

Towards the end of 1958, the BLUE train ceased running to Hamburg. After Bremen it then ran through to Hannover where it was serviced. We airmen in Hamburg were then required to travel down to Bremen to meet and greet the morning BLUE train to the Hook around 10 am. This was a single man duty shared amongst five of us. I actually logged 41 return trips in uniform. Having waved off the Hook , we then had to keep ourselves amused until the service from the Hook arrived late afternoon.. Most of us took the opportunity to visit the NAAFI in Delmenhorst. My two years were up in April 1959. I cannot be sure but I believe 86 Movement Unit moved out some time in 1961..

The Military rail/sea service operated both from the UK and Germany on a Mon, Wed, and Fri, with ultimate destination
arrival the following day. You would have had to spend the night in Bremen.

Brian, Tone

To dot the eyes/cross the tees

The Blue train was diverted beyond Soltau to Hannover following the closure of Hamburg Garrison and the majority of the British Army presence in Schleswig Holstein. It officially terminated/started at Fallingbostel but loco and empty coaches were based in Hannover It continued to stop at Langwedel (for Verden and Nienburg) between Bremen and Soltau.

JPW.............A very good day to you and all others looking in.

As you know I was at King Alfred School. Plon from 1952/54 .My two sisters and I used the Train to go back and forth to School.My father was then based in Hameln.
So which would have been the train we used  and I should like to know the route taken.I do have a good memory but this one escapes me. confused
I remember it seemed to take for ever to get there.
However They were happy days.

Hoping you can help out.

Regards to you and all others looking in.
John.

John,

It was the Green Train that went to Hameln. It was a slow route, I traveled on it to Paderborn.

John, I spent a short time at Normandy Barracks in Sennelager, a few minutes from Paderborn, before being posted to German/Netherlands border near Munchen Gladbach. The only train I ever travelled on was the the Green one. Brian
