Sole Survivor

99.222 was one of three 2-10-2Ts built for DR's Eisfeld - Schönbrunn line by Berliner Maschinenbau AG in 1931. They were intended to be the first of a standard type to replace older locos on several DR metre gauge lines but no more were built.

The other two locos were sent to Norway in 1944 and scrapped there in the 1950s. 99.222 remained in Germany and moved to the Harz in 1966.

99.222 was on shed at Wernigerode on the evening of 7 October 2015. The loco is a favourite for special trains and had worked the "Traditionszug" to the Brocken earlier in the day. At other times it can often be found working service trains, turn about with the newer 2-10-2Ts.
