The share of meter gauge (1000 mm) and Cape gauge (1067 mm) in the total of all railways in the world was almost 15 percent by the end of the last century. Switzerland has an extensive rail network with meter gauge and in Germany we find, among other railways, the Harzer Schmalspurbahn, a tourist railway with a beautiful route in central Germany where many steam locomotives are active in high season, including the well-known BR 99.23-24. Wilbur Graphics has built this locomotive as an add-on for TS 20xx, in close collaboration with German developers, Michel R. (MR) and Frederick G. To see this locomotive at work we have created a short route in a mountainous landscape, the Bauernwaldbahn, with a matching range of meter gauge freight and passenger stock.
This fictional route starts in Berntropp, where a side branch of the standard gauge network ends. This connection makes the transshipment of goods possible. The BWB mainly supplies logs on its meter gauge line, which could be transhipped here in the outside world. On the other hand, the connection justifies the transport of goods supplied by the bigger railway to the stations along the line. The main yard is Steinitz, where the BWB depot is located. The route ends just behind Hollzertal in a disused tunnel, which used to be the entrance to the part of the route that has since been closed.
