    Wonder where those Stukas were heading ? To the junkyard, or to a factory to be refurbished ? It appears the pic
    was taken in Germany, because of the AA railcar sitting on the siding. Good pic !

    I suspect they were on thier way to be scrapped just be looking at the contents of the railcar in the foreground that the Stuka is resting on...it looks like scrap metal just crammed in there.

    Just found this thread Paul, great theme! Lots of posts by people not seen for a long time. If your RR dream is still alive I'll see if I can find some photos.

    Regarding the Stukas Paul posted a while back, they must be going to the scrapyard.

    I have two illustrations regarding the proper transportation of a Stuka by rail:
