An impression of a five day railhobby trip to Ostfriesland, a part of the German federal state of Niedersachsen, situated in the outmost northwest of the country, near the Dutch border. The author visited the narrow gauge railways of the German Wadden Islands Borkum and Langeoog and the so called Küstenbahn, a museum railway between Norden and Dornum. But beside railway objects he also pays attention to the ferry services between the mainland and the islands, and the history, language, culture and landscape of the area concerned. Special attention is given to the picturesque towns of Jever and Leer, the leaning church tower at Suurhusen and the port of Wilhelmshaven.
The book contains 136 pictures, most in colour, and 5 maps.
