Molli Steam Train is a small steam powered train that runs down the 15 kilometer long track from the Baltic sea cost towards Rostok. Within Bad Doberan the line runs through the street, and later along a linden tree-lined avenue.

When the winter time comes, the trains are replaces with "Mollibuses" that run along the same route.
