No. 399.06 runs under the standard gauge line on the approach to Gmund in August 1979. This was a somewhat unsettling location. The border between Austria and Czechoslovakia lay a few yards to my left and the watchtowers, security fencing and other apparatus of the Iron Curtain stood a short distance beyond.

Running Narrow Gauge Heaven costs me £20/month. Will you help cover the costs?
