Harz Railway Class 99 2-10-2T No. 99 7241-5 awaits departure from Brocken Summit station with the 17:07 service to Wernigerode on 30th June 2014. For No. 99 7241-5 this was the second trip from Wernigerode to the Brocken Summit that day each trip hauling an 8 coach train the 21 miles up the mountain and 21 miles back down again while also climbing 2,900 feet and descending the same back to Wernigerode. Just to left of the smokebox of No. 99 7241-5 on this very clear afternoon can be seen the town of Wernigerode, under 8 miles away, as the crow flies, in the distance.
