Chiemseebahn:
The narrow-gauge Chiemsee railway has been linking the main line station at Prien (on the line Munich-Salzburg) and the harbour at Stock since 1887, continuously using the same steam locomotive. This locomotive, now 110 years old, is seen with a train to Prien station on 25 May 1997.

The two tracks and the station building of the Chiemsee-Bahn at Prien, Bavaria, built in 1909. At right the tunnel to the DB station Prien on the line Rosenheim-Salzburg. The 1000 mm Chiemsee-Bahn was founded in 1887 and connects the railway station to the port of Prien/Stock with a line of about 1900 meters. From Stock, ships depart for the famous castle of Herrenchiemsee and the convent of Frauenchiemsee. It is the only steamtram in the world which sees regular service now, but in summer 1998, rumors spread that due to financial reasons, there would be no service in 1999 any more.

Chiemseebahn, station Prien/Stock: All cars are still the original ones of 1887. The engine, Krauss No. 1813, got a new kettle in 1957 (though that one was already built in 1950) and some minor upgrades, but still runs up to 5000 km per year.
