Hello all.

It's been a while since I've posted, but this summer I was on an eight day trackside vacation in the Harz, and I thought I'd show you my videos.
During my stay, steam in Selketal was cancelled, so the videos are from Harzquerbahn and Brockenbahn. Hopefully I'll return next year to visit Selketalbahn.

Enjoy BigGrin

Jens

Thanks Jens for these wonderful videos. Beautifully shot with thoughtful scenes and editing. I'm hoping to go the Harz mountains myself this December (2020) and see these wonderful steam railroads working in the snow.

I hope you get to go there. It's a one of a kind experience, beautiful scenery and a must for every steam enthusiast. I'm planning to return this summer, but this time exploring the Selketalbahn Wink

Oh but please not to be disappointed, if there is no snow. This is possible. You missed the train in January 2019.



Then the loco has to be grubbed out from the snow



but of course sometimes is Kaiserwetter (= a beautiful day)



Be careful all the time, the Brocken is well known as the Witche Mountain. The witches can be anywhere.Love
CS 3 is a controlling station from Märklin - not a central station.

That brings back some memories from April 2019.
My favourite station was Eisfelder Talmuhle, but the Wernigerode terminus was a spectacle to behold.

Thanks for the advice. It looks incredibly cold in the second of those videos. And it may just be cold and no snow or it might be Kaiserwetter as you say. We're looking to stay in Wernigerode for a week and enjoy the whole European Christmas experience - so hopefully that includes snow!
