In the post-World War II era of the 1950's, the economies of the world were growing rapidly and commercial travel was expanding. The German Federal Railway which was severely damaged during the War, had begun to rebuild and add new equipment to be able to service the new ridership. In this image, we see a whimsical montage of train pictures that makes up a happy winter face. If you take a closer look, you will find the train in the pictures is traveling to the ski destinations, with a happy winter time ahead!

The Deutsche Bundesbahn or DB (German Federal Railway) was formed as the state railway of the newly established Federal Republic of Germany (FRG) on 7 September 1949 as a successor of the Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft (DRG). The DB remained the state railway of West Germany until after German reunification, when it was merged with the former East German Deutsche Reichsbahn (DR) to form Deutsche Bahn AG, which came into existence on 1 January 1994. The DB was a state-owned company that, with few local exceptions, exercised a monopoly concerning rail transport throughout West Germany.
