Remarks & Notes 
Crossing an empty East German Motorway
The Stassfurt-based 41 1189 is crossing the motorway Berlin - Leipzig which was, at that time, almost empty. Nowadays the right hand lane is often occupied by trucks. The passenger coaches it hauls, four- or six-wheelers, where a torture for those who needed to travel with. The quiet bumpy motor way was a torture as well. Maximum permitted speed was 90 km/h (56 mph) for the locomotive and 100 km/h (62 mph) on the motor way.

The time is gone, the song is over, snapshots and memories remains... Some things we remember, some we see now - and will not forget...
