Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Leipzig-Probstzella railway is a line in the German states of Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia. It runs from Leipzig through the valley of the Weisse Elster via Zeitz, Gera, Triptis, the Orlasenke lowland and Saalfeld to Probstzella. Since it runs parallel with the Saal Railway but is higher, it is also called the Obere Bahn. The line begins in Leipzig Leutzsch and runs south from the city. Leipzig-Halle S-Bahn trains run on the line as far as Plagwitz. The line then runs through the flat Leipzig lowlands along the Elster through the former central German lignite mining area. This section of the line was once used to transport lignite to nearby power plants, but this traffic has declined considerably.
