The ending of the era of steam locomotives marked the birth of the German Steam Locomotive Museum.
The historical roundhouse houses highlights of steam locomotive history:
From the one-man operated "Spalter Bockl" to the bank engines used at the "Schiefe Ebene" up to the gigantic 10 001, the final evolutionary stage of locomotive engineering. How does a steam locomotive work? What was work at a motive power depot like? What is the story behind the parlour car?
The exciting and entertaining tour through the exhibition will answer all these questions and many more.
