1985 was a year of great celebration in what was then West Germany. A gigantic exhibition was staged at Nürnberg, the city where railways first began some 150 years before. A series of parades was held, in which upwards of 70 locomotives and trains from all eras passed before huge crowds. On the lines which radiate from Nürnberg, a flotilla of special trains undertook tours throughout the year. They were hauled by veteran steam, diesel and electric locomotives which gave the modern generation a chance to see what their railway heritage was all about and the older generations a chance to indulge in a year of pure nostalgia. This DVD records all aspects of the Jubilee, the many locomotives and their trains which took part in the exhibition, and the parades.
