06.10.2017: Storm damage

The storm-front Xavier hit the historical locomotive shed Wittenberge hard. Due to the extreme gusts of wind, a 400 square metre piece of multilayer roofing felt was torn off and blown onto the tracks of the Wittenberge - Stendal railway line behind the engine shed. The missile, estimated to weigh a good two tons, damaged the overhead line and bent a catenary mast. After the accident site had been made safe by the Deutsche Bahn emergency team, ten active members cut the roofing felt into portable pieces and carried it away from the tracks in a four-hour session on Friday after the storm. The roof of the locomotive shed is now damaged, but on the next two weekends the museum can still be visited without restriction before the roof is repaired during the winter break.
