Now that the frost has largely gone, it is easier to work on the vehicles again. This week, the tender boxes of the tender intended for our 50 3570 were cleaned.
In addition, some brake parts have already been cleaned of coarse dirt.
Then our freight wagon, which is currently being refurbished, could get some fresh air. It was turned on the turntable so that the half of the wagon that had not been clad so far could be worked on in the shed.
For the sidecar 190 851 we are still looking for a tail light to be mounted on the front side of the car. On the following photo you can see one of the still existing lights. Perhaps one of you, dear visitors and railway enthusiasts, still has such a light at home and would like to return it to its original use. We would be happy to discuss the conditions and ask you to send a message to the board of our association. Thank you very much!
A donation in the form of many mementos of the Reichsbahn reached us last Friday. A couple from Fleetmark gave us several collector's items, some of which we put on display on the wall of the engine shed on Saturday. Many thanks again!
Finally the window above the entrance door of our water tower is glazed. We think that the hard work was worth it.
Construction work of a different kind is going on at the former Magdeburg side of the station. On the site of the former goods ramp and the milk yard, a supermarket with accompanying car park is being built. For this reason, our property boundary has been moved a bit and the fence has been relocated.
