Two excellent books, originally borrowed from the local library but eventually copies were bought. Both can still be found for the price of a German magazine.
The Last Steam Locomotives of Western Germany - Brian Stephenson 1978. Ian Allan,

Railway Holiday in Bavaria John.H Price 1967 David and Charles
Most of the books in the series, fulfill what is the basic
mandate for “the series offering what it purports to”. With what was

to J.H. Price. Price eloquently describes the DB main lines (by no means
totally ignoring what light-railway and narrow-gauge went on in
the south) for his 1966 tour – “Railway Holiday in Bavaria” (which also took
him through Baden-Württemberg)
