There was new activity on the 'Boxberg Roundabout' construction site ...

 This year the season opening on the Wiehltalbahn was on Easter Monday. The weather was appropriate for mid-April. While there still were scattered showers with a smattering of snowflakes during the first ride in the morning, the weather largely brightened up and was sunny in the afternoon, but still cold.

During the winter the construction works on the 'Boxberg roundabout' in Waldbröl had been suspended, but now they have been resumed.

Wiehl -

As previously announced by Wiehl's mayor Ulrich Stücker, the fresh start concerning the development of the Wiehltalbahn has begun. A first meeting between town administration and railway organisations has already taken place.

Waldbröl. - No go-ahead for re-opening the Wiehltalbahn as far as Waldbröl is in sight! Acting on a motion of the Green Party group on the council, Waldbröl's Mayor, Peter Koester, promised to attend to the matter and to bring Mayor Rüdiger Gennies of Reichshof in, as a company in the Denklingen area had erected a building too close to the railway tracks.
