Does any one have any images taken during the Cold War of when this sort of tanks as in service ? I know you used to snap them with a long lens ?

I have posted a few before. There's also this (the chap taking pictures at the level crossing indicates it's right at the very end as the Sovs withdrew back home):

Here's one. We did get much more intimate piccies, but I obviously don't have any copies.

Brixmis geek fact of the day. Soviet tanks travelled on rail-flats with two sets of triple axis bogies, so even empty ones were of interest.

I’m sure you’ve seen it, but there’s a 40 min film taken from a G-Wagen on YouTube by a Brixmis tour as they travel from Messe Nord/Funk Turm to the Mission House & the return journey on another day. Nothing intelligence wise is shown, but interesting none the less.
I’ve just finished reading Steve Gibson’s book (which I couldn’t put down) & that led me to search for Brixmis.
