Am I missing something or is this completely fucking insane?
However, I am extremely jealous, I'd love to step out of the office and see a steam loco rolling past

It started under East German rule so any objections were of course quashed. By now it's a major tourist attraction and as another poster said, people are used to it.

The N&W took it to extremes with some of the largest steam locomotives hauling massive coal and ore trains through small town Appalachia

It's been this way for way more then 100 years, This rail line was build in the glory days of the German Empire. Bismarck was Chancellor and street running trains had been common everywhere.

Sorry, I was referring to the introduction of traditional tank locomotives rather than tram engines, IIRC that was done in the DDR period.

Hold the fuck up.
Is that the place where they filmed the movie "Matewan" in 1987? And, more importantly, how did I recognize the spot?
Still, it's a nice movie. The Coal Wars period is an interesting era of relatively recent US history, that's quite often accidentally-on-purpose forgotten.

I’m not sure that’s smugness. I think that’s the bemused despondency of an engine driver that will be fined 700€ if his locomotive produces any gray or black smoke within town and has cyclists and pensioners darting in front of him at random.

Actually tram engines had been phased out between 1910 and 1915 . Replacement was
Mecklenburg T 7 (DRG Class 99.30). In 1923 Mecklenburg T 42 (DR 99.31) had been added.
Engines in use today are are DR 99.32 and had been on this line since 1932 (the year Hitler became Chancellor)
There is also a new 99.32 in use which has been build in 2008 using old plans.

There's an Amtrak station there. You'll pass by it, if you're on the Cardinal.
