Our renewed attempt to reactivate the Wiehl Valley Railway (Wiehltalbahn) for the regular local rail transport, which we started with our anniversary event in October 2019, significantly picked up pace in 2020.

A work concept - agreed by the town of Waldbröl and the preservation society - is the foundation for near- and middle-term makeover measures on the railway station grounds. Active members of the preservation society have worked out this concept in an multistage procedure.

 In 2020, for the first time since the 'Society For The Preservation Of The Wiehl Valley Railway' resumed traffic on the Wiehl valley railway in 1999, no train drove on the line! Essentially this is due to the impact of the Corona pandemic.

In last years autumn we had still hoped to be able to finish the restoration works on the societie's own SKL before the end of 2020, but Corona also messed up the time table of this project.

We can report pleasant things from Morsbach in two different ways.
On the one hand, an agreement regarding the future layout and the sizing of the station area could be made with the municipality after extended negotiations.
