We are delighted to see that you are interested in the Harz Narrow-Gauge Railways (HSB). With 140.4 km of the track running through exciting countryside locations, it is also the longest unbroken narrow-gauge railway network in Germany. With its valuable fleet of 25 steam engines,6 railcars, 16 diesel engines and numerous historic railway carriages, the Harz Narrow-Gauge Railway, which operates the Harzquer, Selketal and Brocken railway services, is one of the most interesting narrowgauge railway services. On the 01.02.1993 Harz Narrow-Gauge Railways (HSB) took over the services of Deutsche Reichsbahn, the East German State Railways (DR), being the first non-state owned railway company to operate a regular transport service in the new federal states. The HSB has acted as the operator of the 131.4 km long Harz Narrow-Gauge Railways since then: the former Nordhausen-Wernigerode Railway Company (currently the Harzquer and Mount Brocken Railway Service) and the Gernrode-Harzgerode Railway Company (currently the Selketal (Selke Valley) Railway Service). It runs historic steam locomotives every day on what is Europe's largest narrow-gauge railway network.
