Museum

Dear Visitors!
On June 27, 2020 at 2:00 p.m. we will open the special exhibition "Building Bridges Once and Now" with a small ceremony. Previously unpublished pictures of the original construction of the Zwettler railway bridge 1905/1906 and pictures of the replacement of the structures in 1998/1999 are shown. with the replacement of the structures with relatively little personnel expenditure using the latest technology. Furthermore, models are presented in a wall showcase, which show typical trains of the Zwettler local railway in different epochs. The exhibition is complemented by the vehicle collection on the open-air grounds of the association. Our young visitors have the opportunity to build a bridge with a modular system. The building can be photographed with a mobile phone or a digital camera and the picture can then be emailed to museum@lokalbahnverein.at with the name, age of the bridge builder, address and contact details. At our last event in 2020 "Atmospheric Advent at the train station" on December 20, 2020, 3 of the "buildings" will be awarded prizes.

Our museum can usually be visited every Saturday from 9:00 to 12:30 and from 14:00 to 17:00 and one day before and on the day of a special trip (our staff are mostly at the boiler house)
The showroom (waiting room in the station) is normally closed. If you want to visit the museum room, an employee will be happy to unlock you and present the collection. The vehicle collection itself is located about 150 m to the north (direction Brunner saw) on the other side of the tracks, at the club grounds near the boiler house.
You are also welcome to make an appointment to visit us. (Ing. Karl Wasinger (karl.wasinger@aon.at, +43 676 7354461) or Ing. Thomas Wasinger (thomas.wasinger@gmx.nett, +43 664 88378967)
