Steam on the Preßnitztalbahn today in Saxony, Germany
Author: RailRyder

These are amazing little engines, just right for heavy haulage on narrow gauge lines! Engine 99 1568-7 was built in 1910 by Sächsische Maschinenfabrik Chemnitz, not far from where she works today! The locomotive is designated as a Saxon IV K with wheel arrangement B´B´

It does need a proper bell on it however!

-Jim Fetchero


For the curious:

Preßnitztalbahn  = Preßnitz tal bahn or Pressnitz Valley Railway

ß is simply a German symbol of a double "s".
Tal is valley and Bahn in this case is railway.

Nice video.  Thanks for posting.  As I recall  "DR" on the coaches indicates Deutsche Reichsbahn continued name in the eastern zone after WWII.

It's about halfway between Chemnitz in Germany and Karlovy Vary (Carlsbad) in the Czech Republic.
