What an interesting question! I am myself doing similar intelligence
gathering of German railways in the 60's and 70's. I have discovered German
model train publications to be a great help in my effort. They publish
frequently era III pictures and illustrations from the 50's and 60's. MIBA
is one particularly interesting publication for those who can read German
(http://www.miba.de). They have also two little booklets about passenger and
goods train compositions of era III.

Subject: [Z_Scale] Reference material for 1950's German layout
I'm looking for links to sites with reference material for the layout I am
building. It will be mid to late 1950's Germany. Anything you have would be
great, but I am particularly looking for pictures of passenger and goods
consists, colour pictures of trackside buildings/yards and general scenery.
I'm building quite a list of links myself, but I am sure lots of people out
there have modeled this era and must have many more reference links for me
