the Columbus-Bahnhof, Bremerhaven, Germany

The late 1960s: 4-wheel goods wagons and cranes for lifting their contents into the hold of the Norddeutscher Lloyd ship  Bremen
Before people took to flying en masse, leaving shipping companies bereft of passengers, Bremerhaven on Germany's North Sea coast was an important embarkation point for trans-Atlantic passengers to America.  A quay-side railway station was built and used, with rebuilds, into the 1970s.
