Preßnitztalbahn - Out of the Forest, Into the Winter Sunshine

Crisp air and winter sunshine…

A shrill whistle and the ever-nearing, rhythmic CHUFF-CHUFF-CHUFF…

Then, out of the dark pine forest, this double-headed narrow gauge
steam goods train of the Preßnitztalbahn emerges into the warm light.

The Preßnitztalbahn is a museum railway operating between Steinbach and Jöhstadt,
over 750 mm narrow gauge track, through the pine forests and along the Wildbach
in eastern Germany’s Erzgebirge region, close by the Czech border.

showing this scenic steam railroad in winter settings, from sunny to swirling snowflakes.

    the mood is wonderful here with the old engine and its steam and the light
    and resulting colours ... nostalgic, especially with the touches of Winter ...
    warm regards,
