IV K steam clouds over Saxony

22nd - 26th March 2020

Germany: Narrow gauge steam in Saxony

Already in the year 2016 we have undertaken the first round trip to the Saxon narrow-gauge railways and have met with great response from the railways and our customers, because nowhere else you get so much narrow-gauge railway compressed in such a short time. The longest journey is worth it, as many photographers and videographers from Japan, Canada and the USA have confirmed with their visits.

This time we offer on 5 days the visit to 3 Saxon narrow gauge railways - on each of them we have prepared a special photo and video program. We start in Annaberg-Buchholz in our proven tour hotel, from where we take our comfortable tour bus to the trains every morning and return to the hotel in the evening. 

The programme essentially comprises 4 locomotives of the IV K series with DR passengers and freight trains. We go to the Pressnitztalbahn, to the Döllnitz- and to the Fichtelbergbahn. To the Fichtelbergbahn we have 99 680 from Freital-Heinsberg to Oberwiesenthal transferred by low-loader especially for our photo trips.

Our tour program:

Saturday, 21 March 2020: Arrival of all participants to Annaberg-Buchholz in our centrally located tour hotel.

Sunday and Monday, 22 and 23 March 2020 - Pressnitztalbahn: Every day a Saxon IV K covers several authentic photo trains for us between Steinbach and Jöhstadt. Among other things a DR passenger train and various mixed freight trains, formed from the large vehicle stock of the Pressnitztalbahn. On Sunday evening night shots with 2 IV K under steam in front of the locomotive shed in Jöhstadt. Saturday and Sunday different IV Ks under steam.

Tuesday, 24. March 2020 - Döllnitzbahn - The Saxon IV K 99 5984 covers a mixed train, made up of the DR- luggage car, DR- passenger car and several freight cars, a photo train for us on the route Mügeln - Oschatz - Mügeln - Glossen and back for us. 

Wednesday and Thursday, 25 and 26 March 2020 - Fichtelbergbahn: certainly one of the highlights of this tour. We have extra 99 608 transferred from Freital Hainsberg to the Fichtelbergbahn and drive there on Wednesday a GmP of narrow-gauge freight cars and on Thursday a Gmp, formed from DR- labeled passenger cars and luggage cars and a rolling stock loaded with a freight car of the type Es. During the lunch break in Oberwiesenthal there is enough time to visit the local locomotive workshop.

Either you drive on Thursday evening still in direction home (end of the meeting at approx. 18 o'clock) or you spend the night still another night in the Tourhotel and start the return journey on Friday morning. All those who still have one night to go can take a look at the Tanago annual review 2019 on Thursday evening, at the end of the tour.
