Visiting the trains – the Dampf-Bahn-Club Taunus

Monday, August 13th, 2007

Yesterday the Monday Podcast visited the DBC Taunus grounds in Oberursel to see the model railway that they have built up over the last 30 years.

We spoke to the chairman, Matthias Zundel, and took a ride behind one of the steam trains.

The U-Bahn to Oberursel-Hohemark

Monday, March 5th, 2007

Today the Monday Podcast took a trip on the U-Bahn to the end station, “Hohemark”. We intended to talk about about the history of the line and what is left of the turning circle at the end of the line that used to be used in the days of the trams.

Unfortunately, things didn’t go according to plan. First we missed the train, and then it starting raining so hard, that we had to give up and go home again.

I hope you still enjoy this rather shorter podcast.
