Survivors

1950 O3500 KHD shel1

This Klöckner Humboldt Deutz above is a good example of what usually remains after 50 or 60 years of use and abuse. Makes you wonder what is invested and what is original on a well restored bus.

Are there still out there to rescue? Definitely! There are many people determined to preserve a piece of history. A painstaking restoration like the Auwärter (now working for the Raiffaisenbank, formerly in the "Deutsches Museum") is a recreation of days past. A monument to the pioneers that battled the enormous task of designing and building a complex machine like this without computers and modern materials.

bus interiors

Information on the inside of a bus is important to me. Blitz bus interiors are scarce, so under this button a selection of preserved interior and interior parts are found.
