Hi Fans, In 2013, having a day off in Germany in the middle of the week when I was working for a customer in Düsseldorf, I've decided to go to Bochum Dahlhausen Railway Museum. It's a particular nice museum, esp. out of weekend days. They've lot of locotomotives, cars stored waiting for being refurbished etc .... The've also quite interesting "prototypes" (I let you triple click on the pictures to go to the max size and see details despite I've resized them to lower the impact on JNS site storage) This "Schienenbus" (litterally Railbus) An interesting DMV ("Schienen-Straßen-Omnibus") And this incredible "Tunnelmesswagen", thus a tunnel measuring service engine (Bo Bo) also known as "tunnel's hedgehog". and identified in Wikipedia as DB 712 001. I have a couple of pictures of steam locs (cold) as well as roundhouse etc ... I can post too. JM
Was a rare oportunity to visit those vehicles only 2 days 10/10 and 10/11, inside have a pictures to how was build and some new papers saying about the new tech for future shinkansen trains, i was alowed for only 1 minute in the drive seat :( The 300X JRCentral later 700 Series, STAR21 JREast E2, E3 and WIN350 JRWest 500 Series are all experimental vehicles that were used to test high-speed technology for future shinkansen. Not only are these trains on display, but visitors can actually go inside them. edit: i upload all the pics from my quick visit there so enjoy :D
