The Molli spa railway (Mecklenburgische Bäderbahn “Molli”) is a narrow-gauge steam-powered railway in Mecklenburg connecting several spas on the coast of the Baltic Sea. The locomotive depicted above was built by Orenstein & Koppel in 1932. It is a piece of the DRG Class 99.32.
While my train was waiting at the railway station of Mürzzuschlag this pretty steam locomotive passed by. The locomotive with the number 33.132 is part of the BBÖ Class 113 and was built in the year 1925. It is still used for vintage train journeys by the company B&B Blue Train.
This locomotive is used for trains of the Breitenauerbahn (Breitenau Railway) running between the Styrian places Breitenau and Mixnitz. This narrow-gauge railway was established in 1913 and is an electrified one since the very beginning.
The original purpose of that railway was the transportation of magnesite from a mine in Breitenau to the railway station Mixnitz located at the main railroad nearby. Though the line starts in a magnesite plant the train journey of about 11 km offers some great views of Styrian countryside.
