78 009 is located in roundhouse 1 now

Since May 2015, heavy repair works at roundhouse 4 are operated by Verkehrsmuseum Dresden (VMD). Some rearrangements in the locations of the vehicles in this roundhouse have become necessary. Most importantly, VMD and our association issued a long-term contract of loan concerning the steam locomotive 78 009, a Prussian T18. This locomotive has moved into roundhouse 1 close to Nossener Brücke and is on display on behalf any museums openings of our association.

Prussian compartment coach C 1254 has arrived in Dresden-Altstadt

 

Late at night on November 11, 2014, compartment coach C 1254 of the former Royal Prussian States Railways arrived in Dresden-Altstadt. The owner, Verkehrsmusuem Dresden, has arranged its transfer. In its previous long-term place of exhibition on the island of Usedom, it could not be supervised and maintained in an appropriate way any longer. After the transfer train, which was operated by PRESS (locomotive: 293 046), had arrived in Dresden-Altstadt, members of our association IG Bw Dresden-Altstadt e.V. performed the shunting service into roundhouse #4. This carriage will be displayed during special events and presentations only.
