"Eisenbahn-Romantik (Railway Romanticism)", broadcast from the year 2008

Hagen von Ortloff's TV-series "Eisenbahn-Romantik (Railway Romanticism)" broadcasted a detailled report about the Wiehltalbahn. Luckily things developed to the positive - but nevertheless this report clearly demonstrates what hurdles we had to overcome to save the Wiehl Valley Railway.

This report also comes with a rare motion picture from the loading of quarrystone at the quarry "Kohlmeier" and the locomotive "Waldbröl" shunting at Nümbrecht Stn. - with comments regarding passenger traffic added.
