Good evening

On my route from work back home, which takes about 2,5 hours I thoughtb of the Eisenbahn-Regiments....(no no that's just me) and I wondered what their actuall duty was. I mean were they on trains, did they protect railways? To what kind of Inspektion did they belong to...

As I dont have any books to look it up in, I hope you can help me out

Thanks a lot

David

David,

they were predominantly in the business of railway construction although prewar they already had an operating detachment which ran a military railway south of Berlin. Since 25 March 1899 the Eisenbahn-Brigade was subordinate to the Inspektion der Verkehrstruppen.

Regards
Glenn
