C64, Where Are You?

For the past 20 years a Commodore 64 was instrumental in displaying the departures and arrivals at the Dortmund train station. Now the C64 has died, the display has gone black, and the station has a big problem: a new display system would cost over 3 million Euros. (WDR, via Industrial Technology & Witchcraft)

Update: Welcome visitors from fark.com. Alas, it wasn't a C64 after all, as one of you points out in my comments (see also heise.de), but an Intel 310 system with a 80286 processor. WDR has now corrected their story. ITW also published the correction, and also links to video news clips from WDR (in German, of course).
