I spend a lot of time at German railway stations for one reason or another. To pass the time, I am always on the look-out for survivors of the past, such as this cast-iron cable marker from the days of the Deutsche Reichsbahn with its winged wagon wheel and imperial crown. Spotted at Torgau station by the way.
I know, I know. I should spend more time browsing the magazines in the Bahnhof shop instead.
