Holiday Greetings, F-C
Erzgebirge Winter No. 1 - Fichtelbergbahn
The hint of coal smoke mixes with the invigorating nip of Winter in the air...
the rhythmic CHUFF-CHUFF-CHUFF draws ever nearer as the
Fichtelbergbahn steam locomotive challenges the grade with its train
of passenger cars, finally blasting out of the dark pine forest into the clearing...
the frost-covered tree limbs and the dusting of snow on the ground, with the
promise of more to come, enhance the joys of the Holiday Season.
(Well, at least prior to 2020...Here's hoping for better in 2021!)
