Pressnitztal narrow gauge line - Springsteam

In 1892 the line Wolkenstein - Jöhstadt was founded. This line was used to transport goods from the small villages along the line to the larger towns were regular gauge was present to transport them even further. Later passenger transport was added too. In 1984 the line was terminated. In 1992 some railroadfriends managed to start building up a part of the old line. Year after year the line was getting longer again so that at this moment you can travel from Jöhstadt to Steinbach through a wonderful landscape. This year they celebrate 125 years pressnitztalbahn and 25 years founding of the museumline
