Last summer I visited Schwarzwald and the Wutachtalbahn (also known as Sauschwänzlebahn) between Blumberg-Zollhaus and Weizen. Here are some pictures.

The station in Blumberg-Zollhaus contains a museum for the line. There is a model of the line.

Here is the Blumberg-Zollhaus station from the outside.

This signal tower was originally placed in Konstanz but has been moved to Blumberg-Zollhaus. Faller makes a H0 model of it, number 120122.

On the parking place, this Köf is placed on display.

Underneath the signal tower there are mechanisms for controlling the signals.

Excellant Perz

The BR 86 is a beautiful engine, was it good to ride it?

Hi Per,

Thankyou very much for taking the time to post your holiday pictures.

I can use photos like that to help my modelling ideas.

In fact, the station is exactly the same (the goods shed housing the museum appears to be more extensive) as my Faller model #110107 of Güglingen.

regards
Kimball

It was a nice ride, but compared to the HSB line in Harz, that I visited a few years ago, the Wutachtalbahn is more of a plain museum/tourist line. Not even pretending to be "regular traffic". The in-between stops are just for the show, not for going on and off the train. Lots of large tourist groups and very crowded. Luckily they have reserved seats on the train so you get a seat anyway.

Here is a link to their homepage: http://www.sauschwaenzlebahn.de/

The Faller Güglingen station is somewhat similar to Blumberg-Zollhaus, but it is not an exact model of it.
