30 years of Dampflokfreunde Salzwedel e.V. - Memories

On June 8th, 2006, in cooperation with the Verkehrsfreunde Lüneburg working group, we organized a special trip for disabled children from Hamburg main station to Hansapark in Sierksdorf. Train locomotive was 131.060, which was still stationed in Salzwedel at the time. In the photo you can see the locomotive in Hamburg Central Station after the train returned from Sierksdorf.

On 28 May 2005, we received the diesel locomotive 1200 54 from the Osthannoversche Eisenbahn as a new operational exhibit. Here on the turntable in Salzwedel. The locomotive was built by MaK in Kiel and has an output of 1200 HP. We have since sold it. It now runs for Heinrichsmeyer Eisenbahndienstleistungen GmbH in Merzig.

30 years of Dampflokfreunde Salzwedel - Memories

On 25 April 2004 we celebrated our 10th anniversary. This was reason enough to invite a few guest locomotives to Salzwedel and run them in front of special trains. The following picture shows the steam locomotive 50 3695 of the Staßfurt railway friends with wagons of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Verkehrsfreunde Lüneburg (AVL) in Arendsee.
