Train Museum Loco Shed Aumühle

You enjoyed the field train at Camp? You would like to try it out, maybe even drive it yourself?

You watched the Remote Stellwerk Experience and would like to lay hands on the levers and to run trains as a signal master yourself?

At the Train Museum Loco Shed Aumühle the Verein Verkehrsamateure und Museumsbahn e. V. has collected and restored trains from 150 years of railroad history, among them multiple generations of Hamburg rapid transit trains. Using the Field Train, we take a tour around the grounds of the museum at its exhibits. Competent volunteer members explain the history of the moving stock, the signal tours and safety equipment, track construction and many other aspects. Where possible, everyything is in operation and can be touched!
