50 2988 on the »Sauschwänzlebahn«

26 and 27 October 2019

Germany: 50 2988 on the »Sauschwänzlebahn«

The "Sauschwänzlebahn" runs from Blumberg-Zollhaus to Weizen over four bridges and through six tunnels over a distance of 25 km. It is the longest tunnel, the large stockpile, that gives the "Sauschwänzlebahn" its name: The route in the tunnel is reminiscent of a curled pigtail.

In October 2019 we let it steam on the Wutachtalbahn. 50 2988 (1942 WFL) covered in addition several photo trains in the style of the DB, formed from 3- and 4-axle conversion cars plus luggage cars, as well as differently arranged mixed trains for us.
