:think: Something for IMGasStationDb. But which brand? The upright tiles are glossy white. This was typical for the ARAL-stations up to the early 80ies. But ARAL is blue, here we have a red pile and a red dustbin. DEA (between 1970 and 1988 all their stations were named Texaco) was red, but the don't have own stations any more since 2002 (sold to Shell).

So I'm quite sure, that we have a gas-station here from the Polish company PKN Orlen, formerly named ARAL.
PKN Orlen has bought all the smaller ARAL-stations in 2002, when BP took over ARAL. The had to sell them, because they would have been too big for the German antitrust-laws. So nowadays BP is not visible any more in Germany, except 6 left over own stations under that name. Everything is named ARAL. The smaller, mostly longstanding stations were sold to PKN Orlen, for a few months named Orlen, but now named Star.

Maybe m.pfaffeneder can identify the location :) A former ARAL-station, named Orlen at the time of filming (today probably Star), nearby a VW-dealer somewhere in Southern Bavaria. Shouldn't be impossible for a local, or? :D

It could be a DEA-station in Waakirchen, near the Tegernsee and about 45 km away from Rosenheim. Rosenheim would fit, as the numberplate is for Rosenheim. And there is a VW dealership in Waakirchen, not far away from the DEA-station. But Im not sure.

@G-Mann: better pondering about dustbins or mobile toilets than the 978th time about a Ford Crown Victoria-taxi or -cop car :p

I think you would have to be a special kind of trainspotter-ish nerd to be remotely interested in dustbins or toilets. :p

It's like that bit in Red Dwarf where they joke about Rimmer's interest in telegraph poles :D

@G-Mann: no worry, I'm harmless ;) About spotting-freaks: sometimes I'm really bewildered, what the plate-spotting and -photographing-freaks in my collector's forum are seriously discussing about. :wow:

IMHO it's not bad for your general knowledge, to show interests in other things, too. Yes, at IMCDb I've learned also something about architecture, circumstances in other countries, history (really remarkable, how much) and other things, too.

I suppose there's always people who are much more hardcore with their obsessions.

Hey, IMCDb is definetely an appropriate romping ground for these kind of nerds! :o Strictly speaking it's meant and made for them. And you cannot absolve yourself, that you don't belong to these -us- nerds, too.

Here, in the WWW, all we nerds and eccentrics are bearable, here it's o.k. with that. In the real life it can be terrible, when you have them around you. Have you made such experiences by yourself? This can be extremely bugging :/
With the following anecdote from some vacations I can elegantly make a circle to the source of the much-loved Marmite-discussion ( /vehicle.php?id=264198 ) :D
On a guided game-reserve-trip in a /vehicle.php?id=408622 there was an older man with us, whose special interests was the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Welwitschia So we had looked at them. You should think, that after some older and some younger, some males and females of these plants, which are looking like explodted truck-tires, it would have been enough - forget it! For several hours, 2 or 3 for sure, we went around there, looking for dozens(!) of this stuff. Not only my wife and me started getting mad, the guides became a bit annoyed, too, after the 20th or 30th...
Back in the lodge -really hacked off- we've told our experience to a nice older couple from London. They'd loughed over and over and have told us, that in the last lodge, they had been, they had such a "nerd-in-the-group"-problem. There they had a birdwatcher there. A hardcore-stickler, which has registrated every single bird, he had spotted, incl. location and time, in his diary-books. For sure, he had known everything better than the others, incl. the native guides. All the evenings he was busy with his notices and listings, never ever he did something else.
What has Marmite to do with that? Because this nerdic (British) birdwatcher had a family-glass of Marmite with him. He wasn't able to leave his country without having Marmite with him [:rofl]

That's quite funny, although probably not for you at the time. :D

Good point. Yes, I have had experiences where I've been stuck listening to some boring old man going on and on about something (my great uncle is a little bit like that).

In his book "Notes From a Small Island" Bill Bryson writes a funny and true passage about his encounter with an old trainspotter, read it here (scroll down the page a little bit): http://cs.trains.com/TRCCS/forums/p/50022/633751.aspx (there are quite a few typos in it, by the way)

"He wasn't just a train-spotter, but a train-talker, a far more dangerous condition."

Do you know, that there are trvel-companies, which are offering tours, especially for such kind of people? If you look on magazines about natural sciences, there you can find guided tours to everywhere, specially made for bird-watchers, astronony-fans, stone-spotters (officially named "for geology-experts") and several more.
It can be becoming more bizarre: once I've seen TV-reportage about special vacations for steam-train-spotters - to North Korea :wow: Yes, they took this destination, because it's the country, where still the most steam locomotives are in daily use. "Bizarre" insofar, as these tourists were indeed mostly interested in the railway-technology and were only talking about that - not much about this also bizarre destination and its system :/

If you look on the tourism-offers for Formula 1-races and other sport-events, you will wonder, how big this business is. Really big money. At least these tourists are only a kind of spotters, too...
