Line 544 Reichenbach - Hof

This double track, diesel-worked, main line line is one of the oldest in Germany, dating from the 1840s. It runs through the attractive Vogtland landscape, winding around the rolling hills and crossing a couple of spectacular viaducts over the Göltzsch and Elster valleys. Most passenger trains are worked by DMUs but there were a few loco hauled passengers and a handful of freights when I visited the area in October 2010.
