Rollwagenverkehr on the Döllnitzbahn Part 3 (Autumn)

The Döllnitzbahn is a 750mm narrow gauge line in Saxony(Germany).On January 7 in 1885 the stretch from Mügeln to Oschatz was opened by the Royal Saxony state Railway.These narrow gauge line connected the countryside with the regular gauge lines. Small factories and farmers could transport their goods to the bigger cities. Passengers were also transported.
In time solutions were needed to skip the manual transfer of goods from narrow gauge to regular gauge and the other way around. This was done by loading the narrow gauge wagons on regular gauge rollwagons and again the other way around.
In this gallery you will see how regular gauge wagons were transported on narrow gauge lines.
This Third part of this line is photographed on an Autumn steam event organised by Tanago
