The aim of our association is to preserve the history of the field railways in the Eisenberg area. There was extensive field and mine railway traffic in our immediate area. Both underground and above ground, the railways transported clay and sand between Hettenleidelheim, Eisenberg and Ramsen. Many of our vehicles and tracks come from this area and we keep them functional. In order to make this technology accessible to our interested visitors, we drive our passenger trains through the Stumpfwald every Sunday in the warmer months of the year.
Our motto is: The journey is the destination.
And that's not just a saying! Drive with us and get a wonderfully relaxing ride along our route.
The small train slowly drives up the incline from the station Eiswoog, where you can feel how much power there is in the machines. Which have up to 70 hp. We continue with a steady "ratat ratat" over the tracks laid in the forest soil downhill into the cool forest. After one kilometer you reach the passing point called “Saupfuhl”. In quiet hours, wild boars can be seen wallowing here during the day, the damp corner belongs to ducks or other forest dwellers. Our train continues pass the cow pasture, where the Glan Donnersberger cattle can be spotted on most days. Towards Bockbachtal. Our midpoint on the route (2 km). On days with two-train operation, the trains are crossing here. After the departure whistle, we cross two small bridges over the Bockbach, circle two natural monuments and continue the last big climb on the newer part of the route to the Wasserhaus turnout. After passing the crossing station we reach the stopping point "Schützenhaus" (stop only on request). This is where the Ramsen shooting club has created its home. Now our end point, "Ramsen West" is almost in sight. After a short drive we reach the forecourt of our vehicle hall. Here the locomotive get uncoupled and placed at the other end of the train to begin the journey back to Eiswoog after ticket inspection.
We are looking forward to your visit!
