30 years of Dampflokfreunde Salzwedel e.V. - Memories

On 30 April 2000, three of our exhibits basked in the sun in front of the locomotive shed in Salzwedel. 52 8131 has since left us and belonged to the company WFL Wedler Franz Logistik GmbH, which has since restored the locomotive to working order. The locomotive was sold to the Lausitzer Dampflokclub in 2020. The other two locomotives, 50 3624 and 3682, are still part of the collection in Wittenberge.

30 years of Dampflokfreunde Salzwedel e.V. - Memories

On 30 April 1999, a big station festival was celebrated in Röbel on lake Müritz. On this occasion, special trains also travelled on various lines in the area. Today we are showing a picture of our steam locomotive 50 3682, which is racing against 52 8029 stationed in Röbel as they leave Ganzlin station. 50 3682 is travelling with its train to Pritzwalk, while 52 8029 is turning off to Röbel.

On 7 April 1998, we organised special trips between Salzwedel and Klötze. In Beetzendorf the old railway world was still in order. The following picture shows one of our special trains leaving Beetzendorf in the direction of Klötze.

On 19 February 1995, our steam locomotive 50 3682 was under steam for the first time in the Salzwedel depot after having undergone a general overhaul the year before. There were still some tests to be done. Here she is being positioned on the turntable.

Dear railway friends,

On May 4th and 5th, 2024 we will celebrate our 30th anniversary, the Salzwedel Steam Locomotive Friends, with you. In order to review these 30 years in pictures, we will take a little journey through time with today's monthly picture. We will surprise you with a new picture every Monday until the festival.

On 29 December 1994, 219 004 of Deutsche Bahn AG stood ready in the Salzwedel depot to haul passenger trains on the lines in the Altmark. The steam locomotives of the Dampflokfreunde Salzwedel (on the right) had been transferred to Salzwedel from the scap yard in Meyenburg almost two years earlier and were waiting to be refurbished.

The days are noticeably getting longer again, but the sun still remains shrouded in fog on some days.
This is also the case at Wittenberge depot. However, here the Press steam locomotive 86 1333-3 is shrouded in its own fog, creating this atmospheric scene in the engine shed.

A big thank you goes to Henry Wagner for this great photo! And also to exPresszugreisen!

In view of the cold season, we would like to present a snow picture of our steam locomotive 50 3682 as our picture of the month. It is already 13 years old. However, some of you may still remember its former location in Salzwedel. We wish you a happy New Year.
