web site about cog railway Tanvald-Korenov was founded in 1998 - and from the beginning
of its existence contains the
page "Wrecked engine". The page discus about the accident of steam
locomotive of the German series 38 at the end of World War II. The whole
information was in the cloud of uncertainty. I collect the information slowly
during the years. Most of the information brings the book "Zpráva o pátrání

After 8 years the site exists I have obtained the e-mail from Dr.Wolf from

Dear Mr. Kaldy,
for the longer time I follow your web site about the cog
railway Tanvald-Korenov. Until the sixties I lived in Sumburk
with the partial view on the railway station. I have
traveled by the cog railway many times (in that times with the steamers 404...).
It was extremely interesting for me, the wrecked locomotive - we passed it by
car many times - and I've some reminiscences I want to describe (I was
only 5 at those times - I do not know how precise they remain - but my
"investigation" verifies I am right!)
You will find the corresponding
article on www.vykolejena-p8.de . (Sorry
for my Czech - there may the errors appear within it. I am several decades
abroad - Mr. Wolf, please excuse my clumsy attempt to translate your words
