There could be a connection with the fact that David Gerstein is on
holiday (er, I mean: vacation, or urlaub)...

My dictionary says "gammel" means "ramshackle" (unlike the Scandinavian
equivalent, which means just "old"). "Gammel 88" is the name of
the train. "Op een zijspoor" is something like "on a side track".

I have no information about reprints. Our database does not list them
(I copied the reprint data from Becattini's index).

What is a "period reprint title"?
