Photographer's Note

This capture is not meant to celebrate national socialism, even though a swastika is enclosed.
It is meant to celebrate an outstanding piece of electrical engineering. Electric locomotives of class E 19 were constructed in 1939, with their power of 4000 kW the strongest single frame electric engines of their time and capable to run up to 180 km/h.
They are said to have reached 200 km/h in test runs.
Of course it was a propaganda project of the nazis and therefore fitted out with their symbols.
Only four of them were produced as WW II prevented further development. They all survived the war and went into normal service with Deutsche Bundesbahn (and limited to 140 km/h) until 1978. Two were scrapped, two were stored as museum objects. E 19 01 was stationed at DB Museum at Nuremberg when I took this in 1985 and is now on display at Deutsches Technikmuseum. Berlin.
Taken on slide film with Canon A1, professionally digitalized.
