A rather (in)famous rail car:


Foch's Carriage. The original at the orders of Hitler was moved back to the 11 November  1918 location and used as the venue for executing the French surrender. The car was then moved back to Germany and destroyed at the end of World War II. The present car is considered a very accurate replica of the original.
