Drei Annen Hohne is the name of a small settlement within the municipal area of Wernigerode in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany.

The place is located about 6 miles southwest of the town within the Harz mountains, on the northeastern edge of the Harz National Park. It is accessible from the road from Wernigerode to Schierke, an eastern branch–off leads to Elbingerode. Drei Annen Hohne is also a stop on the narrow gauge Harz Railway line from Wernigerode to Nordhausen, as well as of the Brocken Railway, which branches off south of the station.

After the recording of the train leaving the Drei Annen Hohne station, I knew better: At least with steam trains it is a good idea to stand back a little for a recording, as the difference of the level of sound is just too big, so some of the athmosphere gets lost.

    Many thanks! It's going into an historical documentary about a 1930's train station, now retired!
