The shipments observed at Strausberg railroad station between 1 and 28 May 1954 included crates with a yellowish gray paint and 2 iron clips and loops probably for lifting , a crane. The cover with the sidewalls could be taken off from the bottom section. Some crates had small glass windows in the front vv2.1.
