Women in the Bundesbahn camera: Rühe packages in the GDR camera: Jackson, by the way... (Accident spot ladders)
AutoTest Renault 30 TS camera: Jackson at the beginning and end of total length
This rail: Women in the Bundesbahn in the morning between 7 and 9 - in a German city - a boring to the yawning scene because it is associated most with early waking and getting same way to work. The scene gets interesting and above all attractive aspects however by the nearly 10 million women between the ages of 18 and 50, partly in professions that they had hardly dared them to 20 years ago or even approved to. One of them we followed with the camera and got a Visual shorthand of their workplace.
Ulrike j. – 22 years old, – after graduating to the Bundesbahn. Today, after three years of training, it is Inspector in the service. -the railroad says: "everywhere there, where the wheel rolls", - so typical for men, hard work, dirty, rough sound.
On the goods station Hamburg-Harburg, Ulrike monitored the shunting columns j, - which means shift work at night. She is responsible for the punctual and above all proper composition of freight trains. Why you just this work fun? -"Every decision is so on visible" - "It's wonderful when everything exactly according to plan work and unwinds" - she says: "at the moment, I'm the only woman on the freight yard here and before I started working here, I had already scared that one here would not accept me, but it is now here as a matter of course. I belong to here, Yes, and it gives me the feeling that I'm accepted." The service at the base is one of the steps on the way to the leading position in the railway service, in which Ulrike heard j. to the few exceptions who have opted for this area of responsibility.
From this table, almost 750 trains are channelled through in 24 hours. Ulrike j. her shift took over, this time in the central signal box Hamburg-Harburg. The integration into a team of men, every second extreme concentration, - the contacts between her and the male colleagues work. Also here a step along the way - dispatcher on a modern central signal box.
Ulrike not j. no typical case of Emansipation - for the Bundesbahn yet, that their service is too little demand. But, she speaks for a generation that seeks with great understanding and very much involvement in professional, where their male counterparts is equal.

It Security: by the way...
Hair is not only beautiful - not only decorating hair - hair has it all: for example, hair is surprisingly resistant to tearing, as evidenced by this tow attempt. But what keeps out hair, doesn't have long the scalp. The machine recorded only a few hairs, demolished the scalp in fractions of a second. Where machines are running, hair without protection brings danger. Grab yourself smooth waves. Hair's going to believe covered faster than most. You can protect themselves: by technical protection, wherever it is possible. Where technical protection is lacking, personal protection saved from danger.
By the way: Security can afford to everyone!
This engine: Renault 30 TS a chauffeur to the Volant of this six-cylinder would almost between again a break in style.

Motor journalist Dieter Knust showed up on a test drive taken: "a car with a very good road holding, with power steering for the city very well, with an automatic transmission on request, all the things that you want to have a car of this price class to 20,000 DM, you get as standard. The 4.52 m long car weighs 1,320 kg, is fast and from the State to speed up nearly 180 km in 12 seconds to 100. Plenty of space in the car is front as well as back in the Fund you have really amazing lots of space. There you can herumflegeln themselves around, because you can read the newspaper, because you can stack beat legs - so how to do it, if you are a longer distance. This is precisely the advantage of a larger vehicle and visibility are the characteristics of Frontantrieblers, excellent, back as front, excellent"- especially when snow and ice cover the streets. The six-cylinder with the 5th door could win many friends this winter.
