A Tight Spot

We had fully expected 99.6001 to work the daily Selketalbahn steam diagram on Sunday 11 October but the first train of the day, the 07:34 from Gernrode to Harzgerode, turned up with 99.7243 on the front. While a little 2-6-2T would have fitted neatly into the gap between the trees, a big 2-10-2T was a different matter. In the event, there was just enough room but in the next frame, taken 1/5 of a second later, the snowplough was in shadow.

The location is less than a kilometre below Harzgerode on the short, steeply graded branch from Alexisbad.
