Murnau Bf in February, 1979. A BR 169 prepares to take another Lokalbahn train to Oberammergau. A BR 160 heads up a unit train of empty ballast hoppers bound for Eschenlohe and the Hartsteinwerk Werdenfels rock quarry.

This website was designed to provide information about the railways in the area around Murnau, Germany, which is in southern Bavaria (Oberbayern). I have a great interest in German railways in this area, and have decided to build a layout centered around Murnau. It is my goal to update this site as I build the layout and gather more information on the prototype. Most of the photos on this site (especially the ones I took!) will not win any photo contests. Since I can't visit Murnau on a regular basis, I did my best to capture details I felt would be important in modeling this region. Photos that may seem boring with no clear subject may contain a specific detail a modeler would like to recreate on his/her layout.

If you have information about any of the areas mentioned in the following pages, or have corrections to the existing data, I would love to hear from you!

Thanks for visiting!
