Hi Sturm,
That photo is very interesting. It appears to be rigged as a glider winch, similar to this Maybach roadster here:

Hi Sturm 78,

for me it is the type Merkur III. Have a look on the list of Reichsbahn-vehicles here in this thread # 8:
license numbers 26.000 - 26.999 3t Hansa-Lloyd-Goliath (mit Deutzmotor).
The type Merkur II had a MWM Diesel engine, the type Merkur III a Deutz Diesel engine.

Best regards

Bert

Hello,
Here are two more photos of the Henschel three-axle steam locomotive. I think it was also intended for the Deutsche Reichsbahn?
I wonder how many were produced?

Hi,

here an interesting pic, that shows the very rare "KdF beetle", a predecessor of the VW Beetle. Only a few hundred of these cars are been built in Germany and only a handful of them survived the war. The Deutsche Reichsbahn requisitioned private cars since 1941. Source of the pic and information:
