Schwäbische Waldbahn Steam Train, on Sunday, 25 July 2021

July 2021

Dear Members and Guests,

After an extremely long pause we are very, very pleased to invite you to join us on Sunday, 25 July 2021, for an excursion on the Schwäbische Waldbahn Steam Train from Schorndorf to Welzheim, where we will enjoy a nice meal, tour the Roman Boundary Fort Ostkastell Welzheim, and relax at a Biergarten before returning to Schorndorf on the steam train.

We will meet at the Schorndorf Train Station, Track 5, no later than 10.10 hours. Scott Beard will give each participant their ticket. Hang on to your ticket for the return trip! The steam train leaves Schorndorf at 10.30. We will arrive in Welzheim at 11.30, and walk to the Gasthof Lamm, where we will enjoy a midday meal. At 13.30 we will walk to the Ostkastell (approx. 20 min.) where Roman Legionaries will meet us and show us their fort on the Roman Empire boundary line. They will explain why they are stationed there and a little about daily life on the fringes of the empire. Tours are in English and German and will last a good hour. Following the tours, we will walk (approx. 15 min.) to the Tannwald Biergarten, where we will enjoy a well-earned rest before boarding the steam train at 16.35 for the return ride to Schorndorf, arriving at 17.30. We hope you will join us for this wonderful outing!

This event is free for members. We thank you very much for your support during our long Covid pause! We ask Non-Members to pay €10 at the meeting point. The restaurant meal will be à la carte from a limited menu, pay as you go.

Current Corona rules require proof of full immunization, recovery from Covid in the last 6 months, or a current negative Covid test (quick test max 24 hrs old) to board the train. You will also need a medical quality face mask to board the train and to enter the restaurant. Pls see www.schwaebische-waldbahn.de for detailed CV rules. These rules could change before the event. We will notify you if they do. Dress appropriately for the weather at the end of July and wear comfortable walking shoes. After we leave the restaurant we will be on our feet and walking for over two hours (mostly level with some up and down). There is little shade at the Ostkastell tour site.

(for driving directions, please see >>).

We are limited to 40 participants for this outing. Reservations made in the order they are received.
