The locomotive depot at Wenigerode, Germany of the Harz Narrow Gauge Railways (Harzer Schmalspurbahnen in German) is the largest steam depot in the world on the basis of number of steam engines dispatched per day on a 365-day-per-year basis. A minimum of five steam engines a day is required simultaneously to maintain the scheduled passenger service, in addition to one each from two other steam terminals (Gernrode and Nordhausen), for a minimum of seven engines simultaneously in use each day on the 87-mile system. The top picture was taken on the evening of May 8, 2018. showing four of the eight locomotives that were in steam at the depot at that time. The lower picture was taken the morning of May 13. 2018, and shows six locomotives in steam, two on each track in the foreground and two beyond the turntable in the distance. One other hot locomotive is out of view. All locomotives in the photos are meter gauge 2-10-2T's.
