Remarks & Notes 
It is early morning rush hour in the Wernigerode shed. Three mighty 2-10-2 tender steam locomotives are prepared for a new day out on the Harzquerbahn. The engines of the DR Class 99.23 are metre gauge steam locomotives, that were procured by the Deutsche Reichsbahn (DR) in East Germany from 1954 to 1956. When they entered service they had operating numbers from 99 231 to 99 247. Today they are numbered from 99 7231 to 99 7247. Between 1954 and 1956 a total of 17 locomotives were bought by the DR for the railways of the Harzquerbahn and Brockenbahn and for the line from Eisfeld to Schönbrunn. The engines were converted between 1977 and 1983 to primary oil-firing and are the most powerful German narrow gauge steam locomotives that have ever been built. Today, they are primarily used on the line between Wernigerode up to the Brocken.
