    This is Juist/ Germany

    Back from my holidays I would like to show you all some photos from the nice island Juist, located in the Northsea. No cars, only nature and much time to enjoy the days...

              Thank you, Doris! Wonderful pictures (as always). I hope, you had this perfect weather during all your holiday.

              Did you find some old traces of the island railways or did you take pictures of the actual ferries?
              In our old forum SteveB and me discovered this interesting history at Wangerooge:

              It would be nice to know more about this history at Juist.

                  Lovely pictures Doris, it looks a very peaceful and unspoilt place to take a holiday. Got to ask, did you build the sand castle?

                    Here are now only few boat pictures, somehow I was more fascinated here by horses then of the ships. Traces of the old island railways are now and yet to recognize.





                    And three days before my departure a ferry "ended in the dry" -

                    free beer and sausages for all the tourists on board, 12 hours later, at night by three a clock, they could leave the ship. Party on board, but only fun for passengers without small children.

                    And now- time to say good- bye





                    Greetings Doris

                      Just looked at these links Ralf, and with reference to the first of the links.... Now i have seen everything, a train that can run on water!!: Brilliant!

                      The maintenance must have been very high on these loco's and rolling stock.
                      And probably the only railway where it's advisable for the engine driver to wear a life jacket!!

                        Hei Steve, I regret but I'm not so creative- that was building by a father with to children...

                          Oh dear, a few red faces on the bridge i think! I do hope that not all of the electrical generators onboard were sea water cooled - seems to be a lack of that!

                          Funny you should post that picture, i was just reading the link to the old forum that Ralf mentions a few posts back, the link that goes back to the old 'Oldenburg' thread. The same thing as happened to the Oldenburg on a couple of occasions in the last few years. That was when she used to do the occasional cruise up the river Taw to Barnstaple.

                            The old "Oldenburg" - thread: I could'nt remember anymore. But now, I got out my old photobooks and saw my good old photos of the'60s. With this ship I travelt every year in the summer time from Harlesiel to Wangerooge and with a similar vessel I travelt once from Wangerooge to Helgoland. I will never in my live forget the "thousends of seasick- bags" I needed on this trip...
