Bygone Era

I apologise if I seem to be jumping across various cities and countries. But this shot has been lying in the archives for about six months and I decided to share it now.

 

I am standing outside the Aachen (Germany) facility of Waggonfabrik Talbot, a railway rolling stock manufacturing founded in 1838. It was a major supplier of the yellow and blue double decker trainsets to the Dutch State Railways, the Nederlandse Spoorwegen. It was acquired by Bombardier Transportation, developed and deliverd several projects until it ceased operations in 2012 and sold off by Bombardier. Today it is re-branded as Talbot Services.

 

The show wagon seen on the left has that funnel shaped design for easy self discharge.

It is a grand industrial building Ayush
Typical of the times, long established brands are bought and sold as balance sheet items, in the end it is difficult to know who owns and more importantly who is responsible for what .
The Bombardier factory in England is in our city of Derby, only about 20 minutes drive away from where I live, fortunately, at the moment they seem to be getting enough work to stay in business.

That is all very interesting, Ayush
The Germans built some great industrial buildings Ayush

And just yesterday I heard about Aachen in the news, related to the recent ISIS attacks. (sigh) We're so close to all of it right now, Ayush, aren't we!

There once was a English/French car, the Talbot, built by Talbot Motorcar Manufacturing. But they are not related to the German rolling stock builders. This lot in your pictures are unknown to me.
