The Eagle Flies Again

By Linda Tancs

After two and half years of reconstruction amounting to nearly a million euros, Germany’s repro of its first steam train, Der Adler (the eagle), trod its original route between Nürnberg and Fürth recently.   The original Eagle, built in 1835, was Germany’s first locomotive.  The run last month of the toy-like green and yellow Choo Choo attracted a wide range of Germany’s elite, including Bavaria’s prime minister and titans of industry.  This trip down memory lane was likely a welcome respite from today’s very unromantic U-Bahn.
