Must be an early one! :lol:

The pictured equipment has been designed during the 1950s and build in the 1960s.

Planning is an unnatural process, much better to just get on with things, that way failure comes as a complete surprise instead of being preceeded by a period of worry and doubt

Well, kind of. They "burned" about 4 to 5 billion Deutsche Mark by building this. Sorry, I forgot about it, at least one tea maker was included, too. :mrgreen:

You got it right, Duncan. :thumbsup:

It's one of the 25 ton doors of the old nuclear bunker near the old capital Bonn.

Indeed, before WW2 the railway tunnel has been used to grow mushrooms.
