Hi Patrick,
So Am I. I have googled myself to death to no avail, the only thing I have been able to find is that the name/callsign was Asien.

Hi,
A 1940 picture from FIGHTER, Arms & Armour Press, London-Melbourne, 1979.
I think the picture might have been taken here:

That was outstanding. ASIEN is probably too deeply burried in the text for google to find it.
Now we need to find some of the other wagons. And this might be a good lead.

Please also see:

which gives the various waggons utilized, now we have to find the composition and the engine (locomotive).

I have been through the site and it answers a host of questions about the waggons which were part of ASIEN and it has some very fine line drawings and pictures.

Hi Patrick,
You provided the lead I just did some more "mouse-work". I have mailed the WEB-master and asked for additional information.

Excellent photo of the fighter command on the field.

Galland and Moelders relaxed chatting of big operations with always good mooded reichsmarschal Goering.

It's kind of hard to tell, could you please post the picture in a slightly larger size, but you might be right.

It is in English and talks about the trains. :)

This is nice too. It seems our Polish friends have done some good research, too. :)
