Steam side paddlewheelers on the Elbe
A great documentary of the fleet of 8 steam boats, many over 100 years old and still in daily service in Eastern Germany. These boats are up to 225 feet in length and carry passengers to many towns on the Elbe River. Some of the engines date back to the 1850's. You get the complete history of the boats with views of engine rooms, boilers, pilot house, and many great scenes of the boats maneuvering on the river.
