H0, Deutsche Reichsbahn

Set in the area to the north of the Harz the Wendoferburgbahn is a branch of the Konigsburgbahn built from a junction at Ausleben via Warsleben to a terminus at Uplingen. It serves the brown coal quarries, industry, and agriculture of the area. The East German railway was surprisingly called Die Reichbahn (The Imperial Railway). Authorities in East Germany saw the Reichbahn’s main role as moving goods so the layout has a relatively frequent goods service. The passenger timetable is based on the nearby Osterwieck Branch. Most passenger services are provided by railcars – called ferkeltaxi (piglet taxi) by the East Germans shuttling between Oschersleben and Waokersleben augmented by loco hauled passenger and mixed trains. The towns exist but the railway is fictitious.
