From August 5 – 7, 2016 in the Zittau Mountains, the big event "Historic Mobility" took place for the tenth time, which combined the Lückendorf Mountain Run, the festival of the Zittau Narrow Gauge Railroad, and the Jonsdorf Old-Timer Days. In addition to the old-timers for rail and road, a special treat awaited visitors at the Bertsdorf station. On Friday August 5, the joint venture "Saxon IK Train" was presented there for the first time to the astonished public. On the weekend, the train even did limited special runs. Starting in 1881 the Saxon State Railways purchased small, short 3-axle steam locomotives from Hartmann in Chemnitz for its narrow gauge lines (750 mm / 30"). They were later designated as the class I K. By 1892, Hartmann delivered a total of 39 units to the Saxon State Railways. Five units went to the privately owned Zittau-Oybin-Jonsdorf Railroad (ZOJE) between 1889 and 1891 that was taken over in 1906 by the state railroad. A total of 12 locomotives had been retired by the time of the DRG's introduction of its definitive new class designation plan in 1925. The DRG classed the rest as road numbers 99 7501-7527 in its motive power pool but retired all of them by 1928. The Association for the Promotion of Saxon Narrow Gauge Railways (VSSB) created an interesting project in 2005: A milestone in Saxon narrow gauge railroad history was brought back to life with the new construction of a "Saxon I K" with road number 54. The assembly of the approximately 4,400 individual parts produced in Saxony took place on January 16, 2009 at the well-known DB steam locomotive maintenance facility in Meiningen. Exactly five months later, this unit did its first test run there. The "New Construction" I K, road number 54, was officially put into operation in Radebeul on July 4, 2009. Suitable two-axle cars from the right construction years and weights had to be found, overhauled, or rebuilt to assemble an authentic train (from around 1900) for the I K. The construction and restoration of such cars by different associations allowed the display for the first time of an original train from the early period of the Saxon Narrow Gauge Railways. The I K had the "Saxon Train" with 2nd and 3rd class passenger cars, a baggage car, and two freight cars. Of special note is the double cars, 2nd/3rd class (built in 1882/83), which were rebuilt extensively by the special interest association of the Zittau Narrow Gauge Railways. Passenger cars of the Saxon train to go with this locomotive are available under item numbers 35091, 35092, and 35094.
