The silly train was only stopped for a short while, not long enough to catch the engine or wait for sunshine. The Brocken is the highest point in Central Germany at 1100+ Meters elevation. The steam powered tourist train starts in the villages in the valleys below and winds its way up to the top of the mountain. Wikipedia says that the Brocken was a former Soviet listening station and was walled off until the fall of the Berlin wall. Now it is an immensely popular tourist destination. One amazing thing about this gigapan is that I somehow happened to capture, in 1/800 of a second, the flash from the lady's camera on the terrace. Who woulda thought...
