Wernigerode

The cab of HSB 99 7232-4, just arrived in Wernigerode with the 13:14 train from Brocken on 18 September 2017. One of a batch of 17 New Steam Engines built in the 1950s for use on the 1000 mm gauge system in the Harz Mountains, this locomotive sports the number given to it when restored to coal-burning in the 1980s (after being converted to oil-burning in the 1970s). Other members of the class just bear numbers like 99 236 See image 61103 - locomotive numbering on the Harzer-Schmalspur-bahnen seems something of a black art!
