The FKS = Freundeskreis Selketalbahn e.V. (based in Alexisbad, Hotel Harzquell) regroups all the friends of the Selketalbahn, and all people who are interested to support it and take part in any kind of action aiming at enhancing its attractiveness within the HSB operations.
Generally speaking, the goals are as follows:
- maintaining the Selketalbahn in its original form i.e. specially with steam traction,
- maintaining vehicles and other "Harz-typical" equipment and installations,
- having a Mallet back into operation on the Selketalbahn for hauling the Traditionszug,
- putting the 060T 99 6102 "Fiffy" ( ) back into operation,
- bettering the environment of the stations, installing signs, etc... so as to contribute raising the number of visitors,
- actions aiming at making the Selketalbahn better known,
- work in close coordination with the cities and villages along the line, the other groups, and organisation promoting incoming in the area, as well as with HSB.
Since the foundation of the Freundeskreis Selketalbahn e.V., many actions have been organised on a regular basis such as "specials" at Easter with "Easter Bunnies", and week-end work sessions on the equipment and the installations so as to help preserving them.
The Freundeskreis Selketalbahn e.V. also organizes a number of interesting steam specials with selected motive power and cars.
With recent HSB decisions aiming at shrinking the service and reducing the staff on the Selketalbahn, the Freundeskreis Selketalbahn e.V. will be more active than ever to contribute keeping the railway in operation: support is needed from both german and "foreign" fans !
Membership / 1 year 1996 / is DM 60.--.
