Eastern Germany in May 1994

Though by now DB had taken over, things continued much as they had done when the DDR Reichsbahn were in charge. In other words nearly everything was loco-hauled and there were many lines that were economically unsustainable. So it all changed rapidly after this.

This was the branch terminus of Grossbrietenbach (now shut). The loco looks a bit OTT at the head of a single coach, even if it is a double-decker! On the modern map there is railway close to this village - but its a new high-speed line that is just passing through....
