Hi Sturm 78,

thank You very much for posting this interesting pic. What a load on two large pneumatic boats (großer Flossack 34): a heavy infantry gun with 1750 kg and a minimum of twelf soldiers. That´s nearly three tons.

Best regards

Bert

Hi all,

Not German but.... :roll: ....a abandoned Russian pontoon wagon, according to photo caption.
Any idea about the model ?

Hi Sturm 78,

that was a hard nut to crack. That´s a pontoon wagon of the old Russian bridge buildung system Tomilovski from 1872 VPPT (ВППТ), the exact Russian designation is "понтонно-весельный парк обр. 1872 г. системы П.П. Томиловского. Here a pic of such wagons with pontoons.

Best regards

Thanks for your reply, Bert...It is difficult to ensure if your pontoon wagons are the same model...

Hi Sturm ,

thank You very much for Yourcritical reply. You are absolutely right, that it is impossible to ensute that these pontoon wagons are the same model. I recognized somme differences, accoring to the wagons and to the pontoons. Maybe it is a total different model. But if they are really Russian wagons and pontoons, then it is the only possibility: the system Tomilovsky, abbreviation VPPT (ВППТ).

Best regards

Bert

Hi Sturm,

You are right. We have to be careful, because the captions are often wrong. And here I have some doubts, because the other wagons don´t look like Russians. The question is, from which other country in the East they could be.

Best regards

Bert

Hi Sturm 78,

this pontoon wagon is Dutch. Here two pics of this pontoon wagon (1. Regional Archief Dordrecht; 2. to see in the Nationaal Militair Museum in Soesterberg/NL).

Best regards

I havent gone thru this whole thread, but there seems to be a couple of different models of german pontoons, a flat bottomed and one that is more boat-like.
Did one model rwplace the other?
