Wildbad was the last station where the “Orient-Express” stopped before it arrived at Stuttgart.  At left in the photograph is a Wuerttemberg ADh locomotive which I made based on a Model-Loco kit.  It’s used to haul the ROCO model of the King of Wuerttemberg’s salon carriage. I made the lamps based on Gebhard Reitz’s Prussian originals. The polished brass chimneys, characteristic of the lamps of the Royal Wuerttemberg Railways, were a tremendous amount of work that wouldn’t be necessary today since Herr Weinert added such lamps to his catalogue.

Above the tobacconist’s kiosk can be seen part of the famous Julius Klinger poster for “Palm” cigars. Appreciated for its humor as well as its design, the “Palm” poster typifies the years immediately before the First World War when the tastes of Berlin and its citizens’ singular sense of humor influenced graphic design throughout the German Empire.
