Karl Marx at the Wall
1983 was the "Karl Marx Year" in the GDR (East Germany), hence everywhere his picture, even at the station in Aue (red poster to the left). 86 1001 was for a few days responsible for the passenger trains to Johanngeorgenstadt at the border to back then Czechoslovakia while 50 3659 is going to Blauenthal, just 12 km. 118 264 has just brought the 12-coach train from Zwickau, which 86 1001 took over. On the left side you can see the sometimes very annoying to railway photographers railway police. Not so in Aue at that time.
