    A German friend has just e-mailed me to say that the Ochsle schmalspurbahn in Baden Wurtemburg yesterday afternoon badly suffered the effects of a torrential downpour with devastating results.

    Streckenschäden in Kürze behoben
    Die Fahrten konnten wieder aufgenommen werden. Aufgrund eines starken Unwetters am Freitag, 24.6. gab es erneut schwere Schäden an unserer Strecke. Herzlichen Dank an alle Helfer, die dazu beigetragen haben, dass alles wieder in Stand gesetzt wurde. Für alle Unannehmlichkeiten bitten wir um Verständnis.

    This is good news. I visited in 2014 and enjoyed a trip over the line. A typical undulating ng common-carrier line and even though the train was a fair length the VIIK wasn't taxed too much. I think I am right in thinking that the owning company / society were forced to suspend traffic a few years back due to the state of the track & his flood damage can hardly have been welcomed.
