WWII Locomotives & War Series nº 16 - by Carlos Briz


(Class SU 1-3-1 locomotive - Russian State Railways)

We have been hearing a lot about the really bad weather that is going on up north.
I hope you guys out there are able to cope as best you can.
Over here in Portugal we are also having some trouble with the weather, since we have days when the clear blue sky and the sun force us to wear sunglasses and drive in a hurry to the nearest seaside coffee shop.
Oh well, we just have to endure it.

JF has been working overtime (something he is not able to do on his daily job...) and in the next few days several brand new locomotive Series will appear around here.
Therefore, buy your pop corn and reserve your seat in advance!

I sincerely believe I gave the New Yorkers every chance to win the current challenge (see post from 11 December), but it was simply too much for them to handle.
The correct answer would be: Hans von Luck, leading Panzer Reconnaissance Battalion 37, under the eye of Rommel himself.
You guys should not take this too hard on yourself. My 4 year old kid also had some trouble guessing this.

But there is another challenge coming up and this time it is directed to Londoners!

This one is also easy as pie: give us the name of the pilot that flew the Horsa glider that carried the first platoon that landed on Pegasus Bridge, on 5 June 1944.
