View of the street "Spiegelturm" in Münster with the St. Paulus Cathedral in the background, around 1946/47. After WW2, these small locomotives were used on improvised tracks to remove the huge mass of debris. In Münster alone, approx. 2.5 cubic meters of debris had to be removed. Today still one of these locomotives commemorates the city reconstruction on the Kalkmarkt. The cathedral had been badly damaged in World War II, it was rebuilt between 1946 and 1956.
