steam locomotive Emma
The four-coupled steam loco "Emma" was built as one of a large number of locos to an identical design, intended for industrial shunting work in the 1920s by Hanomag in Hanover. Our locomotive was delivered to the sugar factory in Rethen (near Hanover) in 1925. There she was used as locomotive No. 2 for shunting wagons during the sugar beet campaigns until the end of the 1960s, when she was taken out of service. She was bought in the early 1970s and her new owner put her on a short piece of track in his garden in Schleswig-Holstein where she was later protected by a greenhouse-like hall.
