Earlier post of the Zeppelin-Draisine in Finland.

In the last photo of this French magazine article, the first word seems to be Heimatbhf and then probably the name of that "home railway station".

Hello Seppo, You mean picture number 6 ????
The translation of the french text:
une vue inédite prise en gare de Salla,en Finlande, qui permet de bien voir le camouflage et de deviner des détails des parties horizontales.

A rare view of the engine was token at the railway station of Salla in Finland and show us better the camo and let us be able to see in details the horizontal parts.

Kindly regards from Belgium and sorry for my poor english but's not my native language
Prosper :wink: :wink:

Hello everyone, the text says "Heimabhf Tuntsa". Home depot/ station Tuntsa.

Tuntsa is a river and a wilderness area, but also the name of the village/place where Salla railwaystation was situated.

Please do not confuse it to Salla of today. They are not same places, Tuntsa was the "old" Salla that is now a part of Russia.

I have tried to dig out anything about this draisine, I still have questions: where was this built and where did it finally end to?
