The first earth is dug from a new section of road linking German and Austrian autobahns.
Germany / Austria.
Various shots of a steam train decorated with pine-leaves and Nazi swastikas in a forest area near the Austrian / German border. Men shovel earth into wagons pulled by the train, working on a new section of road that will link the German autobahns with those of Austria.
It seems to be a public ceremony to mark the first earth dug from the section. Crowds of people make the Nazi salute; Nazi flags fly in the wind with snow-capped mountains seen in the background; a large notice commemorates the building of the new section. L/Ss of trees being felled, clearing the way for work on the road.
