Germany: Döllnitzbahn ­–
Freight traffic with IV K

21 - 23 April 2023

For quite some time now, Tanago has been particularly involved on the Döllnitzbahn. In addition to organising several photo trips for international groups of photographers, we have financed the reconstruction of the trolley train, which was and is always part of our photo trips on the Wilden Robert. In 2023, we will again dedicate ourselves to a special project on the Saxon narrow-gauge railway around Mügeln. This time we are bringing a former Mügelner IV K from the Pressnitztalbahn to Mügeln for our event, in order to be able to "re-steam" old goods train times with IV K as faithfully as possible.

Currently, only the Saxon IV K 99 584 is operational in Mügeln. Therefore we will bring one of the two ex Mügeln IV K 99 1542 or the IV K 99 1568 back to the Döllnitzbahn. We plan to run both locomotives together in front of different goods trains, sunrise and sunset pictures, as well as night pictures at the engine shed in Mügeln. Usually on other museum railways the free tracks are too short - for this project the Döllnitzbahn offers several excellently suitable photo spots to get both locomotives together with train on the picture.

Travel with us on one of the classic ex-DR narrow-gauge railways between Oschatz and Glossen and Kemmlitz with two operational IVk in front of authentic photo trains. You won't get another opportunity like this in a hurry!

We travel on the train and stop at the most beautiful photo spots on the Döllnitzbahn. All participants travel on the train, so everyone gets good photos and videos.

For the overnight stay we recommend the hotel "Zum Schwan" in Oschatz.

All participants travel on the train, on the transfer routes we "decorate" our train with orange warning waistcoats. Non-payers are not welcome on our photo tours. Honest payers make such elaborate projects possible with their participation fee.
