Remarks & Notes 
On a frosty morning the express train locomotive Pm36 2 brought the early morning passenger from Wolsztyn (Wollstein) to Poznan (Posen). Rakoniewice had two manually served barriers. One of them was served by the station master, the other by a pretty blond, female gate keeper. As the Pacific accelerated from the station she stepped back from the outside crank. In the very last second before the well planned shot I needed to adjust the focal length and the focus to get her completely in the shot. The scene was illuminated by several Metz 60 CT1 flash lights, all connected by cables and slaves. It took more than two hours to prepare the picture and another half to collect everything afterwards. The credit goes also to Jan Kaczmarek, who shared the work with me.
