Harz Railway, Germany

I received this beautiful train card as an official card not long ago.


The Harz Railway (German: Harzquerbahn) was formerly the main line of the Harz Narrow Gauge Railways and runs from Wernigerode to Nordhausen. But the tourist potential of the Brocken is so great that the Brocken Railway is effectively the main line today. The Harz Railway joins up with the Selke Valley Railway to Quedlinburg at Eisfelde Talmüle where all trains are organised to make good connections.

The stamp on the right (that is upside down) was issued this year and was designed by the singer Udo Lindenberg and is themed on his song "Andrea Doria". The flower stamp is from a sheet of 10 stamps with 3 designs issued in 2007.
