In the area between Leipzig and Dresden, i.e. in the heart of Saxony, lies one of Saxony’s four narrow-gauge railways regularly operated by steam locomotives – the Wild Robert. 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 narrow-gauge romance of the Wild Robert on the journey through the Döllnitz Valley and in Mügeln, once the largest narrow-gauge railway station in Germany, and go on the hunt for the most beautiful steam locomotive pictures at photo stops!
