Photographer's Note

Harzer Schmalspurbahnen is a network of 1,000 mm gauge railways in the Harz mountains in central Germany.
The railway is notable for running a significant number of its trains with steam haulage, mostly employing tank locomotives built by VEB Lokomotivbau "Karl Marx" in Babelsberg. Harzer Schmalspurbahnen connects cities of Wernigerode, Nordhausen and Quedlinburg with about 140 kilometers of track.

The most popular destination on the network is Brocken, highest peak of Northern Germany at 1141 m above sea level. The Brocken has always played a role in legends and has been connected with witches and devils.
