Oberweißbacher Bergbahn

The funicular from Obstfelderschmiede to Lichtenhain was opened on 1.2.1922. Today it is a part of the DB (German Railroads). The track gauge of 1800 mm is worldwide unique. With 1388 m distance it is one of the shortest railroads in Germany. But it is the only Broad Gauge Railroad in Germany, apart from the Russian Broad Gauge on Rügen.
