Tour program:

27 September 2019, Friday: We start with a hearty lunch at Teichstrasse station (from 12 noon) and then drive a mixed train with coal and wooden wagons at 99 3317. Forest workers are on the way, as is a car. We operate the factory connection with the old Gmeiner diesel locomotive V 10 C. In the late afternoon, shots are planned at the Kromlau branch and at the large pond off Kromlau. Afterwards night shots in the triangle.

28 September 2019, Saturday: Today, two brigade locomotives are on duty - 99 3315 and 99 3317 cover the coal and brigade wagon trains, resulting in train crossings and prestresses. A special highlight we set again with sunset pictures at the heavy mountain.

29 September 2019, Sunday: today is all about the 1950s at the Waldeisenbahn. The locomotives run without DR plates, but only with the old HF number on the water boxes. Trains are covered with tipper trucks (of course the beautifully aged ones), the brigade wagons and a loaded wooden train. There are train crossings and prestressing capacities to photograph or film. We drive on the route Weisswasser -Halbendorf/ Kromlau - Gleisdreieck - Weisswasser.

At the current planning stage we assume 3 operational brigade locomotives.

We have reserved a complete hotel for our group. For participants of the whole event we offer single and shared double rooms.

The event ends on Sunday at about 14.00 hrs.
