Im Linienzugbetrieb verbindet "Rasende Roland" die Badeorte Rügens (Göhren, Baabe, Sellin, Binz) und fährt weiter bis nach Putbus und zum Anlege Lauterbach. Alles unter Dampf, die Loks sehen aus, als ob sie eben aus dem Werk kämen! Schöne alte Wagen und im Sommer ein offener Wagen.
Bright Bus Turns Utterly Dark
Brightbus is part of MASS, a bus company with a chequered history. The owner decided to close down at the end of this summer term. The bus operation was exclusively in schools work, some commercial, some with financial arrangements with the schools.

Tomorrow, amongst other things, we unload a Garratt.
