DVD running Time: 52 minutes

Using footage mostly from 1997, and 1998 (with short clips of earlier Hi8 video taken in 1992), this video is of the Döllnitzbahn, in Germany. It concentrates on the commercial/freight operations of the railway, and is not concerned with the tourist trains which also now run. At this time the transport of Kaolin was still the lifeblood of the 17km line.

With motive power seen from East Germany, Austria, and Poland, both diesel (Class V10C, Lyd2, and 2091) and steam locomotives (Sachsen Meyer) are seen in action along the line, with track plans of the main locations.

Please see below for stills from the production
