Located between Leipzig and Dresden, in the heart of Saxony, is one of the four narrow-gauge railways in Saxony that are regularly operated with steam locomotives. It is used daily by schoolchildren and commuters. Meanwhile, school transport is mostly carried out with diesel railcars. Nevertheless, the use of the last “IV K“-steam locomotives built since 1892 is an attraction. From Berlin, the “Else” steam locomotive 52 8177 will travel to Oschatz, where a steam locomotive-covered special train awaits visitors from Berlin. Let yourself be enchanted by the romance of the narrow-gauge railway during the journey through the Döllnitztal valley and in Mügeln, once the largest narrow-gauge railway station in Germany, and go on a hunt for the most beautiful steam locomotive pictures during photo stops!
