    Yes indeed! :lol:

    Here's a few more...not sure if they've popped up before...

    Captured train with Bf109s. Not sure if they were heading to a repair depot or being sent in for scrap - they do appear to be in rough shape, so I am assuming the latter.

    These Ju88s look to be loaded in fairly good order, so perhaps these were being shipped to forward areas.
    During the later stages of the war, it was becoming common to see aircraft shipped by rail (when it was safe) in order to save aviation fuel.
