Island Railways

Of interest to historians and enthusiasts alike are the isolated railway systems that sprang up on the North Sea islands of Ostfriesland. Several of these lines survive as tourist operations.

WSA Weser-Jade-Nordsee has a 600mm gauge private railway on Minsener Oog for the maintenance of coastal defences (Site in German, contains no details of railway)

The islands of Amrum, Baltrum, Juist and Norderney also formerly had railways.
