Cool, he does some great work.

I hoped he salvaged some of his old layout.
Must have been something left?

Train movements to work and death camps were supplied under contract by the DR to various German authorities responsible for transporting people to the camps.

The typical wagon used was usually the standard ventilated wagon, or boxcar, in US terms. The equipment used though, varied widely. Normally, freight wagons were used, but occasionally passenger cars were used as camp transports. It usually depended on the origin of the train.

There is an excellent book called "The Greatest Asset Of The Third Reich" which discusses the DR role in WW2.

Technically, the DR was never absorbed by the Reich, but remained a independent company which profited highly off the German government. The DR had strong unions which even Hitler did not challenge. The government did have a domestic railway corps which aided in coordination of train movements and security.

There were also German Army railway battalions, responsible for armored trains and trackage in occupied countries. The Germans converted thousands of miles of trackage in the Soviet Union from 5 foot gauge to standard gauge during the war.

BTW, my great uncle was a surgeon with the 4th Service (a US Army General Hospital) and elements were attached to the 20th Armored Division, which took part in the liberation of Dachau Concentration camp...it was a very unpleasant experience which stuck with him for the rest of his life.

Hello Ed. It was an interesting original post about a historic event that really doesn't get much press as far as the involvement of the railroad during the war.

The role of the DR is interestingly down played as they were a money making venture which profited from the war, even though they worked for the losing side.

It was a sad time in railroad history, but interesting none the less.
