A journey through time
Former train conductors have fond memories of that time. The atmosphere was informal and they had a lot of time to chat because the stations were far apart. But there were also exciting moments. Erwin Bergmann, a former train conductor remembers: “A horse, startled by the train, ran across the tracks and was caught by the locomotive. As there were no mobile phones yet, the train conductor had to hurry to the next farm to organize a tractor for the rescue.“
