Oil for the steamloc in Drei Annen Hohne, these trains run from Wernigerode to the Brocken (1125m over sealevel, highest point in the northern part of Germany) in the Harz National Park
Coallading in Wernigerode for the tour on the Brocken
The feel of a freezing night still lingers in the air as 95 1016 assaults the stiff 3,3 % grade departing from the Lippelsdorf stop.
Halfway between Freital-Hainsberg to Kurort Kipsdorf any train had to pause to quench the thirst of the tiny mighty 2-10-2 tank engines. Always good for a smoke and a chat.
