Steam clouds over Brohtal

Steep sections in the Rhine Valley

7. - 10. September 2021

Germany: Steep sections in the Rhine Valley

Steep sections in the Rhine Valley

After our successful 2020 tour to the Brohl Valley, we have tasted blood and come back with a program that includes not only the Brohl Valley Railway but also the steep sections of the Kasbachtal Railway and the Drachenfels Railway.

We have also distributed the following program points over the 4 days, although the chronological sequence has not yet been finalized. For this reason, we are initially only marketing the program in its entirety; it may be possible to book individual days at a later date (if not booked out beforehand).

  • Shunting in the harbor (partly in the three-rail track) with D1 or D2 and freight wagons of the Brohltal Railway
  • Brohltalbahn: Diesel train with D5 and containers up to Engeln
  • Brohtalbahn: Steam train with 11SM, if possible up to Engeln
  • Kasbachtalbahn: Special trip with class 798 (3-part, old red), or class 213 with 2 or 3 old red 798- sidecars
  • Kasbachtalbahn: class 213 (old red) with freight train on the steep line
  • Kasbachtalbahn: Shunting with all locomotives at the Linz depot (among others old red Köf III)
  • Photo excursion to the Drachenfelsbahn, where we would like to show you the most beautiful photo spots.
