Trapped on a Train of Terror!
Did You Know?
As the bus pulls away from the Frankfurt train station, one can see the facade of what remained of the Schumann Theater. It was heavily damaged by Allied bombing in March, 1944 and ceased to be used as a theater, but its beer cellar was used as a bomb shelter. In 1945 the U.S. Army took over what remained of the building - the foyer, bars and restaurants in front, and used them as recreational facilities for soldiers during the occupation. After the Army moved out, there were attempts to rebuild the theater, but all failed. It was torn down in 1960 to make way for an office building. See more
The narration for the final scene says the train arrived at Wannsee, in the far west of Berlin, but the scene shows them driving from the east, down Unter Den Linden and into West Berlin. The British and American then ask passing jeeps for lifts to their respective bases which they would have driven past on the way from Wannsee, whilst the Russian turns around and drives back under the Brandenburg Gate into East Berlin.
