Now, this video is a real treasure!

The whole composition is remarkable: the DRB guard's van, and the two 'raboté' coaches. This is probably a Thessaloniki - Serres (my hometown!!) service, one of the last services that have remained steam-hauled well into the 70s.

One of these days, when I can find some time, I'll start a new thread on these 'raboté' coaches. with your permission, Christe, I'll quote your posting in this thread!!

The goods Wagon behind the loco is an ex-DRB Oppeln!
