Bild 1 - The front of the Volkswage factory in Wolfsburg, known all over the world. It is 1,5 km (1 mile) long. In the foreground the power plant and the Anchorage for barges. Coal is brought here along the Mittelland Canal and is unloaded on to conveyors that bring it right up to the power plant boilers. No further spade work is required.
