Developed from the classic DB BR 155 ‘Electric Container’ and heavily related to the ever-popular DB BR 143, the DB BR 114 continued the successful line of wired traction throughout Germany. Boasting a high top speed, and a comfortable ride, the 114s earned their unified recognition. Prominent regional services abound for the DB BR 114, in this excellent locomotive addition for Train Simulator.1973, the midst of the Oil Crisis, and East Germany’s rail network was at the receiving end. Old Russian diesel locomotives were at the helm of many services, and naturally, as the prices for Black Gold were set on the incline. Outward of the Crisis, it was decided that many of Deutsche Reichsbahn’s lines were in urgent need of electrification. It was not long before a fresh new array of wires was hanging above the rails, and a subsequent requirement for a new fleet of electric locomotives, to utilise the modernisation, soon followed.LEW Hennigsdorf, as standard, were appointed the task of designing a new electric locomotive. Initiative triumphed, the design for the new loco would be derived from the DR BR 250 (later, DB BR 155) as it was designed as a ‘universal’ locomotive with a body shell and chassis capable of future developments and modification. The freight-orientated Co-Co wheel layout was swapped out for a passenger-suited Bo-Bo arrangement and eventually the prototype, dubbed ‘White Lady’, was completed.In 1982, at the Leipzig Spring Fair, White Lady, numbered as 212 001, made her debut. After entertaining the public, the true hard work of testing began. Every aspect of the locomotive came under scrutiny, and following many extensive trials, the prototype was dismantled for evaluation. It would be found that a locomotive capable of 160 km/h, as 212 001 was, was not what East Germany required at the time, many routes were limited to a maximum of 120 km/h. As such, the locomotive was rebuilt to accommodate the new restriction, and was renumbered to 243 001, the prototype for todays’ DB BR 143.What wasn’t counted on, was the effect of Reunification, when Germany began the process of coming back together, many railway lines were upgraded to modern standard. These new upgrades allowed for an increase in top service speed to 160 km/h, and now, neither Deutsche Reichsbahn or Deutsche Bundesbahn had a large enough fleet for the faster routes. Once again, a new locomotive was required.Attention was brought back to the original, 160 km/h-capable, 212 001 prototype as a basis for the new batch of production locomotives. Both DR and DB would order a batch of locomotives based on the 212, this was the first time both companies had placed an order for the same locomotives, and as such the 212 fleet would go on to be the tractive symbol for reunification. When the time came for nationwide reclassification, the BR 212s became known as the DB BR 112.The DB BR 112 fleet spent much of its time operating services in and out of Berlin, in fact, upon the arrival of their updated siblings, the DB BR 112.1, the original batch of locos was taken to be known as the DB BR 114. This change was supposed to represent the fleet’s Berlin exclusivity, but in hindsight it just put more numbers on the rails. The DB BR 114’s would soon find themselves operating DB Regio services throughout Germany, and thus, despite internal upgrades and a slightly different headlight cluster, were still DB BR 112’s at heart and the ‘114’ designation could prove to be redundant.In all, the DB BR 114’s, along with other derivatives of the original ‘White Lady’, are a vital part of Germany’s rail network. Successful from the start, the DB BR 114 has proved to be a nationwide unifying icon, an undoubtedly reliable passenger locomotive and a fine example of motive power.ScenariosThe DB BR 114 Loco Add-on includes three career scenarios for the Hamburg S1 S-Bahn route:Last Train HomeRegionalbahn to HamburgRegionalbahn to AhrensburgMore scenarios are available on Steam Workshop online and in-game.

Twin Peaks: Definitive Gold Box Edition

Lose yourself in David Lynch and Mark Frost's murder mystery-soap opera, which unfolds, in one character's words, like a beautiful dream and terrible nightmare all at once . Season 1 Twin Peaks devotees, who have kept the mystery alive on myriad Web sites, will jump at the chance to return to the spooky town that might just be the anti-Mayberry. Rarely syndicated, the Twin Peaks television series has lost none of its quirky and queasy power to get under your skin and haunt your dreams. So brew up a pot of some damn fine coffee, dig into some cherry pie, and lose yourself in David Lynch and Mark Frost's murder mystery and soap opera, which unfolds, in one character's words, like a beautiful dream and terrible nightmare all at once. Twin Peaks was a pop culture phenomenon for one season at least, until the increasingly bizarre twists and maddening teases so confounded audiences that they lost interest in just who killed Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee). This series was a career peak for most of its eclectic ensemble cast, including Kyle MacLachlan as straight-arrow FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper, Michael Ontkean as local Sheriff Harry S. Truman, Sherilyn Fenn as bad girl Audrey Horne, Peggy Lipton as waitress Norma Jennings, and Catherine Coulson as the Log Lady. Alumni enjoying current success include Lara Flynn Boyle ( The Practice ), as good girl Donna Hayward, and Miguel Ferrer ( Crossing Jordan ), hilarious as forensics expert Albert Rosenfield (who has absolutely no social niceties ). -Donald Liebenson Season 2 Don't search for all the answers at once, says a giant appearing to FBI Agent Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) in a vision. A path is formed by laying one stone at a time. In Twin Peaks, that's easier said than done. Over the course of two seasons, that path went nowhere and everywhere. Bureau guidelines, deductive technique, Tibetan method, and luck don't cut it here. It also takes a little magic, which is what makes David Lynch and Mark Frost's bracingly original serial drama one of TV's ultimate trips, and still the stuff that fever dreams are made of. With the DVD release of season 2, die-hard Peakers can rekindle their obsession with this macabre, maddening, sinister, and surreal series set in the rural Pacific Northwest community whose bucolic surroundings hide things dark and heinous. (If you're new to Twin Peaks, best to get the lay of the land by watching the brilliant feature-length pilot and the instant-cult-classic first season, which capture Twin at its peak.) Three main mysteries drive season 2. First, there's the still (!) unresolved murder of Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee). Then, there's the question of who shot Cooper in the season 1 cliffhanger. And finally, ultimately: What about Bob? With its dream logic, bizarre behavior, and nightmare imagery, much of what transpires goes right by you. Some subplots (Sherilyn Fenn's sexpot Audrey held captive at the bordello, One-Eyed Jacks) are easier to latch on to than others (amnesiac Nadine believes she's an 18-year-old high schooler) And, yes, that's a pre-X-Files David Duchovny as Dennis/Denice, a transsexual DEA agent. In Twin Peaks' second season, the truth is out there, but we are entering A Few Good Men territory. When Laura's killer is at last revealed in episode 16, no doubt many will not be able to handle the truth. The teases, red herrings, and out-and-out gonzo looniness will try the patience of viewers with a more conventional bent. But, as Cooper observes at one point, All in all, [it's] a very interesting experience, with enough doppelgangers, allusions, pop-culture references, and in-jokes to keep bloggers buzzing. If, for example, you get any pleasure from recognizing Hank Worden, who played Mose in The Searchers, as the world's most decrepit room service waiter, then Twin Peaks may just make you feel right at home.

Unvarnished (eBook, ePUB)
14,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A Kitchen Confidential for the cocktail profession, Unvarnished is a fly-on-the-wall narrative peek at the joys, pains, and peculiarities of life "behind the stick.” When it opened a decade ago, the acclaimed Los Angeles speakeasy The Varnish—owned, designed, and managed by award-winning cocktail aficionado Eric Alperin—quickly became the stylish standard bearer for modern bars. Unvarnished is a candid, voice-driven, no-holds-barred look at the workings of a bar, and the foundation of The Varnish's success: attention to hospitality and an abiding belief in the nobility of service. Alperin and veteran bartender and writer Deborah Stoll push back against the prevailing conceit that working in the service industry is something people do because they failed at another career. They offer fascinating meditations on ice as the bartender's flame; the good, the bad, and the sad parts of vice; one's duty to their community as a local; the obsessive, compulsive deliberations of building a bar (size matters); lessons from Sasha Petraske—Eric's late partner, mentor, and the forefather of the modern day classic cocktail renaissance—and the top ten reasons not to date a bartender. At the book's center are the 100 recipes a young Jedi bartender must know before their first shift at The Varnish, along with examples of building drinks by the round, how to Mr. Potato Head cocktails, and what questions to ask when crafting a Bartender's Choice. A sexy, gritty, honest look at the glamour-less work of a glamorous job, written with the intimate honesty of The Tender Bar, the debauched inside view of Kitchen Confidential, and the social commentary of Waiter Rant, Unvarnished will take its place among these classics of the service set.

The "Hot Kid" of the U.S. Marshals Service, Carl Webster maintains the law with a cool, showdown attitude. He's one of the richest creations in Elmore Leonard's half century of delivering the goods. From his appearances in the critically acclaimed novels The Hot Kid and Up in Honey's Room, Carl returns to lay down the law in a novella that originally appeared as a serial in the New York Times Sunday Magazine. The title novella - plus two Carl Webster short stories - traces Carl's career from his run-in with 1930's gangsters to his investigation of a murder at a German POW camp in Oklahoma. This time it's Carl against war-seasoned Afrika Korps Nazis. With its pitch-perfect dialogue, compelling characters, and classic charm, Comfort to the Enemy is vintage Leonard. 1. Language: English.

To tie-in with Radio 4's new versions of the Raymond Chandler classic thrillers aired in February 2011, Harriett Gilbert presents a reappraisal of the life and legacy of the man from Upper Norwood who invented the PI as we know him. 'I needed a drink, I needed a lot of life insurance, I needed a vacation, I needed a home in the country. What I had was a coat, a hat and a gun.' Philip Marlowe has become, in many people's minds, the archetypal American detective anti-hero, yet his creator was educated at English public school, took the Civil Service exam and started a career in the Admiralty. This re-examination of the greatest crime writer of all time assesses him as an uneasy Englishman abroad and analyses his love-hate relationship with Hollywood, as well as his writing. Interviewees include the best-selling writer Sarah Dunant, who was inspired to write crime after reading Chandler as a teenager; Professor John Sutherland; David Thomson (the leading film critic who also went to school at Dulwich); and David Fine, author of a book about mythic LA. Originally broadcast on 3 February 2011, A Coat, a Hat and a Gun is presented by Harriett Gilbert, presenter of 'The World Book Club' on the World Service. She is also a writer, huge Chandler fan and daughter of Chandler's solicitor. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Harriett Gilbert.
