Brocken Bound

The main focus of the railway remains the transport of tourists to and from the summit of the Brocken, the highest mountain in northern Germany. Service levels vary throughout the year with four daily Wernigerode - Brocken trains at the time of our visit, plus a Wernigerode - Eisfelder-Talmühle, a Nordhausen - Brocken and three Drei Annen Hohne - Brocken workings, all booked for steam haulage.

99.7234 set off from Drei Annen Hohne with train 8927, the 13:39 to Brocken, on 16 February 2017.

The loco had already been to the summit with train 8925, the 10:25 from Wernigerode, and would return to Wernigerode after its second trip to the top. This pattern of working provides a 45 minute interval service between Drei Annen Hohne and Brocken for most of the day.
