After some wonderful help by a European
Collector it has been determined that this trailer is a Sd.Ah.25/2 Signal
It was made by the firm of J. Durr &
Son, Gmbh of Strassburg, Germany.
The usual compliment of equipment was a
soil tamper, long spade shovel, folding ladder, two drums each with 250
meters of trunk wire, 16 porcelain double-bell insulators, a safety belt,
1 pair of crampons, and a selection of tools and small parts.
The trailer was usually towed by a Horch
This trailer was brought back to the US
from Germany by an Officer in the occupying army force. He packed all his
personal belongings in the trailer and returned it to the US.
It is an extremely rare trailer to find
in the US and is also scarce in Europe
Restoration will be underway shortly.
