When: 11-18 June 2019Where: Manchester - Berlin
The iconic Berliner British Military Train is to be revived – for only the second time since German reunification to form the backbone of the largest Joint Service BAOR/RAF Germany logistics and engineering reunion since the Berlin Wall fell.
It is running from Manchester to Berlin in June 2019 to commemorate the 70th Anniversary of the Berlin Airlift and the role of military logisticians and engineers in the post war recovery of Germany from 1945 to 1949 – the worst man-made humanitarian crisis in modern European history. The culmination of the trip will be a combined air, train and road convoy with 200+ historic military vehicles from the UK, France and the Netherlands along the route of the 'military corridor' from the old West Germany to Berlin. The coordination of road, rail and air activities is, in itself, a microcosm of the challenge that faced the Allies 70 years ago. This will be the last opportunity to capture the combined historical memories from hundreds of those who were there - one of the aims of the project.For details of the full itinerary and information on how to book please click here or visit the Cold War Express website here.
