DB No. 012 082-4, near Lathen, DC917, 23rd April 1974
DB 012 Class 4-6-2 No. 012 082-4 roars southwards near Lathen with train DC917 from Emden to Rheine and onwards. The DC trains were meant to be operated by diesels but at this period the turntable at Norddeich was out of action so the diesels were used between Norddeich and Emden with the steam engines working to the fast diesel times from Emden - exciting times, though the trains were very lightweight. Tuesday 23rd April 1974. Slide No. 12644.
