This is a Noch 66007 HO “Honau” Station. The railway station »Honau« was centrally located: Here, Germans steepest standard-gauge rack railway started with a 100 ‰ gradient up to Lichtenstein. BR 97.5 locomotives were mainly used. After the Second World War, the route again had an important role in freight transport until its decommissioning in 1953. Being located completely in the French occupied sector of Württemberg, military transport could be organized on this line to the military training area in Münsingen without passing the American sector. Normally, a BR 50, BR 52, BR 57.10 or occasionally a BR 93.5 was put in front of freight trains. Due to the enormous gradient, a BR 97.5 rack railway locomotive had to be set at the rear of the trains for a propulsion operation. The station building »Honau» with its two extensions is architecturally remarkable: The complete railway station was built in Swiss chalet style and served as a prototype for the »Einheitsbahnhof Württemberg« Type III respectively later IIIa, a standardized station building.
