Mecklenburgische Bäderbahn Molli GmbH (MBB)
Opened in 1886, the steam-powered "Molli" travels nostalgically along the 15.4-kilometre route between Bad Doberan via Heiligendamm to the Baltic resort of Kühlungsborn. The historic narrow-gauge railway with a gauge of 900 mm carries more than 585,000 passengers a year and has absolute rarity value.
Railway Construction and Operating Company Pressnitztalbahn mbH (PRESS)
Since 1895, the historic "Rasende Roland" has been plodding across Germany's largest island of Rügen at a leisurely top speed of 30 km/h. And it does so on an even narrower track than the "Molli" - 750 mm is enough. The steam locomotive-operated narrow-gauge railway connects the traditional seaside resorts and is a romantic holiday experience, especially for visitors to the island. The "Rasender Roland" runs daily from Putbus via Binz, Sellin and Baabe to Göhren. During the season, it also stops at Lauterbach (Mole). In addition to the "Rasender Roland" miniature railway, PRESS also operates the regular-gauge RB26 Bergen auf Rügen - Lauterbach Mole line on behalf of the state.
