Thank you case-ih1594, but - maybe because of a language-problem on my side - thats beside the point: I introduced myself as someone who is familiar with old heavy stinky technic that I love, thats the reason for my interest in DB tractors.

What I was saying in that respect was, that before long it will be much more costly and complicated to get them over to the continent, now that UK left the EU. And about the thrill in my question:...
