location information:



Located in the middle of Germany, close to Weimar, I found this interesting roundhouse which was built in 1876 when the track between Gera, Jena and Weimar was established. The roundhouse is still in use today. When in 1997 the big German railway company "Die Bahn" decided to leave the roundhouse, a local society of train-collectors moved in. They are called the "Thueringer Eisenbahnverein" and they do have some real treasures hidden in their roundhouse. But let's have a closer look at a location which is very much like a typical workplace from 60 years ago.
