    Lichtenhain lies above the Schwarzatal. The steep section of the mountain railway with train station and the village itself is beautifully situated with great views in and around the Schwarzatal.

    Lichtenhain with the eponymous mountain station is an idyllic and worth seeing district of Oberweißbach.

    The station Lichtenhain is the mountain station of the funicular railway and the starting point of the adhesion route. The broad gauge track of the funicular ends in an open platform hall. Access to the car is also here a stairway platform. Since there are no separate tracks for passenger cars and freight platforms in the mountain station, access to the Aufsetzwagen takes place via a platform on the same track.A small movable loading ramp is located at the top end of the steep section to bridge the gap between the freight platform and the horizontal track connection of the flat section. This leads in extension of the steep section directly to a turntable, the platform track, loading road, more sidings and linked the track to Cursdorf. The platform of the flat line lies directly above the Treppenbahnsteigs and has a usable length of 18 meters.Due to the limited space, the reception building was built into the mountain. The access from the place takes place through a platform tunnel, and the engine room is partly under the steep
