On 26, 27, and 28 November and 6 December, a train with military-personnel was dispatched to the east via Neestrine mete The shuttle-trains are commented on as followss L On 20 November 1953, the train passed with replacements through Kuestrin to the west and, according to the present report, probably went to Jueterbog for unloading. Afterwards, the train was redspatohed to the Greifswald railroad district where, as a reemployment has not been observed, the train nossibly was disassembled. Ithe train was empty and Ithe train carried military-personnel during its trip on 22 November 1953, the actual employment has not been determined. Ihowever? on 23 November 1953, the train was disassembled at Magdeburg. Thus, the data on the train in paragraph 2 ?probably are incorrect. I On 12 November 1953, the train arrived in the zone vie Nuestrin. Between 12 and 23 November 1953, the train left the zone probably only once again and possibly for Brest Litovsk via FrankfertiOder. kel 22 November 1953, the train went from Cottbus to Jaeodin. The present report indicates, however, that this observation was incorrect. Following its unloading at Weimar on 24 November 1953, the empty train possibly was redispatched to Jueterbog for loading on 26 November 1953 the train left to tho east via Nueetrin on 27 November 1953 and returned on 1 December 19530 Previous information and the present report Indicate that the train hauled military personnel to the west via Nuestrin on 17 November; went to Koval via %ben about on 20 November; returned via Guben on. 25 November to be unloaded at Frankfurt/Oder and Hieme/pfort near Fnersteeberg; was rediepatched eppty to Wustermark for cleaning on 26 November; went empty to Justarbog for reloading on 27 November; carried military personnel from Jueterbog to Guben on 29 November; and returned, either empty or loaded with military personnel, from the east to Jneterbog via Guben on 5 December 19530 k On 27 November 1953, the train was unloaded at nimmelpfert near Fuerstenberg and, probably empty, redispatched to the Halle railroad district where the train possibly was disassembled. The other shuttle-trains do not furnish new information. Their . apploynent was peeviously reported or they are continuing previous pperationee The observations indicate the termination of the replacement prograe during the first days or December /953.

The totals of personnel were computed on the basis of the assumption that each shuttle-train carried an average of 1,380 men. Fatperience alows that the surplus of about 20,000 men will be equalized by a gradual discharge of the sick?, and detachirg or transfer of personnel diming the next 12 months.
