In the morning the Lilienstein is still in the fog

which doesn’t keep our dispatcher from having a morning nap.

We started the 2014 season on April 4th, 2014. Already before, but also in the first few days, the system was brought back into shape, changes made and a new commuter route put into operation. Almost all buildings have already been restored and worn tracks have been replaced and narrow radii have been enlarged.

New, the commuter route on the Zittau narrow-gauge railway.

Almost all of the buildings have now been restored.

A foretaste of the new, part of Stolpen Castle is already finished.

Boss had a birthday, a round.

Our first visitors from Schwarzheide in 2014.

The detailing of the new commuter route is progressing.

The 11 o'clock train has to come through this tunnel?!?

Okay, there's still time, I'll take a nap in the shade until then!
