Eisenbahn-Tradition is a non-profit making charity, based at Lengerich,
between Münster and Osnabrück. We have a collection of over 30 railway
vehicles - steam and diesel loco-motives, passenger carriages and good
wagons. These have been accurately restored (with a theme of the
mid-1950s) for operation or display as examples of railway history an
technology, giving you a taste of railway trevel from a bygone age.
of Eisenbahn-Tradition are volunteers working on their free time,
whether this is a driver, fireman, guard or behind the bar. Our income
comes exclusively from the sales of tickets, refreshments and souveniers,
plus donations. We are always looking for new volunteers to strengthen
our team - there are many projects waiting to start! So why not make
steam trains your hobby? Working with us you'll learn all about the
technical and historical aspects of railways first hand.
New volunteers are always
welcome. You might be involved with the upkeep and running of our
historic train, with the administration or with the workshop skills
there's always plenty to do. Later, with appropriate training, you
can become qualified as a guard, shunter or fireman (A working
knowledge of German is required).
