If the Underground gets too much, switch to Saxony's narrow-gauge steam trains. On 23 September Moswin Tours (0533 719922) offers an eight-day escorted tour to all five lines in use in the east German province - plus a trip to Colditz Castle. The pounds 680 price includes Heathrow flights, half-board accommodation (pounds 100 single supplement) and the services of a 'railway consultant'.
