Taken from a balcony on the 17:07 Brocken Summit to Wernigerode service on 30th June 2014 which is being held in the refuge siding, Class 99 No. 99 7240-7 storms past working the 16:47 Drei Annen Hohne to Brocken Summit formed of 8 bogie carriages. Its just under 12 miles from Drei Annen Hohne to the Summit during which trains climb 1t which makes the average gradient over the whole journey 1 in 32.6. Needless to say trains are heard long before being seen.
