Photographer's Note

New Year 1984 - at the border!

In the times of antagonism between Warsaw pact and NATO, the iron curtain between FRG and GDR or CSSR was almost impassable. Some sites could even be regarded as curiosities. The railway station at Bayerisch Eisenstein counted among them.

The border went straight across the long common station building and divided the track installations. There was no railway traffic on the Czech side. The German Bundesbahn stopped their trains immediately before the buffers wearing a red rectangle, just in front of the border fence.

Since the breakdown of the Warsaw pact, this line has been reopened. You simply change from a German to a Czech train without any border control, and there are even express trains that reach Prague in less than 2 hours.

Taken on film with Canon A1, professionally digitalized.
