Photographer's Note

Since 1992 trains have been once again been running along the Mount Brocken; at 1142 metres, this mountain which is steeped in legend is the highest peak in northern Germany.
This is hard work for the 700 h.p. steam locomotives, which have to travel purely by adhesion, without the benefit of gears or any similar equipment.
The Mount Brocken Railway takes about 50 minutes to climb the steepest part of the line from the Drei-Annen-Hohne Railway Station, offering visitors an overwhelming panoramic view of the Upper Harz National Park.
