In an operational report of the Cottbus (N 52/A 57) regional rail- road headquarters for July 1950 mention was made that work on the formation of grain shuttle trains had begun. Three trains"wyere formed prior to the end of the month. The dispatch of t c trains and similar ones from neighboring railroad districts had been delayed by failure of the Fr /Oder railroad office to accept them. 3o A daily average of one to two empty trains have been dispatched t Brest Litovsk since 25 July 1950. These trains consist exclusively of boxcars and are designated Getreidependel (grain shuttle trains). 4, Grain shuttle trains began operating on 24 July 1950, The grain, mostly wheat, comes from Brest Litovsk and is directed to Soviet Any supply dumps. The first trains went to Saxony. Way bills were attached to the cars in Frankfurt/Oder. 5.
