This is the first in a new series of informative guides to contemporary railway operations in mainland Europe.
Volume 1 features the steam-operated narrow gauge system of the former German Democratic Republic, which is utterly fascinating. A plethora of locos working at full bore, making lots of noise and putting out loads of clag while running through some of the most beautiful countryside in Europe.
The programme starts with the numerous lines in the Saxony area around Dresden, then moves to the fantastic Harz mountain system before finishing on the Baltic coast.
Stunning footage is supported by detailed area and route maps, a 'how to get there' guide and an informative commentary.
Whether you are planning to visit the area or simply to sit back and enjoy the action from your living room, this is the perfect introduction to the narrow gauge of East Germany.
