Provided that there were no unplanned complications, the times were always adhered to "a delighted Dirk Holl. "Just in one night, in which almost the entire fleet is busy and we already 95% were sold with pre-orders, it was very interesting, as the new switching system tried, as efficiently as possible to dispose the vehicles. "Note Sebastian Holl at, directs the disposition in this Silvesternacht.
