Wernigerode

HSB 99 7240-7 with the 10:25 train from Wernigerode to Brocken on 18 September 2017. This locomotive was one of a batch of 17 New Steam Engines built in the 1950s (to a 1930s design) for use on the 1000 mm gauge system in the Harz Mountains. Converted to oil-burning in the 1970s, they reverted to coal-firing in the 1980s and provide the backbone of the steam-hauled services on the Harzer Schmalspur-bahnen.
