Information about the Steam Engine Festival

The 9th Dresden Steam Engine Festival took place between April 7th to 9th, 2017. The topic was "Passenger transport over the decades". Many special trains from all over Germany and the countries around came to Dresden. The locos where whisteling and puffing and our museum became alive once more.

People were able to see, smell and feel the former decades of loco technology. Everybody was invited to see how much maintenance a steam loco needs for work.

Highlights were the photo presentations on Friday and Saturday evening as well as the live music event "Dampf & Dixie" on Saturday in the newly opened roundhouse 4.

Some of our guest locos:

From Czeck Republic 93 1360, a Tender loco, built in 1927 in Austria-Hungaria, working for many years on the "Wutachtalbahn". Since 2016 owned by a private person in Czeck Repulic.
