One of the last classic "black-red-gold" flagged coasters in the locks of Brunsbüttel. Lühring's quarterdecker ARNGAST, built in 1958 as the former WESER. She's only saved by a spring and her rudder is adopted to the starboard side with a light ahead going speed. Her engine will be started by compressed air. So every time, when she's ready for maneuver, her engine has to be started by the compressed air again. What a NICE noise!!!! I can't get enough of it!
