I can't find any mention of '602' in German Armoured Trains by Wolfgang Sawodny. The highest number found in the book is '601'.

Good afternoon. Today I took another look at their materials and were greatly annoyed by his mistake . I'm interested in the train № 601, which accompanied the train with the sapper part, breaking in January 1945. From Deutsch-Eylau in Rosenberg and then to Marienburg.
Why to cover the engineer parts were used train. That this secret may take the engineers from Konigsberg

Unfortunately the book mentioned above has very little information on '601'. It just states that it was one in a series of trains re-numbered to avoid confusion and that it was in the rear area of 2.Armee north of Warsaw in August 1944. That is the only information in the book.

In the book "Train the troops of Germany 1939-1945". Author - Oberstleutenant background Olzewski, like the former commander of those troops, I found nothing. My data is based on information from the books of memoirs of participants of these events. So Lasch writes about two armored trains in what was königsberg. Russian sources write about one anti-aircraft armored train. There is a report of aviation says about the destruction of the armored train at the station Pavian (Studding).So I'm here with these data generally confused.

Good afternoon. I again with question about armored train. If what information about armored trains which waged fighting on territory East Prussia with 1944 on 1945 year. Especially if there is information on Konigsberg or its surroundings. And one more question. If in the composition of the trains was trolley for transportation heavy cargoes or ad hoc platform for transportation oversized cargoes the this echelon had whether kakuyuto a special labeling in transport documents German Railways.

Sawodny has only a few details.

The renumbering ordered on 13 July 1944 was to avoid confusion between "Panzerzug" and "Streckenschutzzug".

He notes as an example [page 155, left column] "... Streckenschutzzüge ... mit den Nummern 601 (in August 1944 im rückwärtigen Gebiet der 2. Armee nördlich von Warschau) ..."

But he indicates it was a new train, not a renumbered one.
   [page 155, right column] "... — beides wohl Nueaufstellungen — ..."

As an aside;
He further notes that the order could not be carried out, and that the ones renumbered received their old numbers. This did not affect No. 601, as it was a new unit.
