Covered car transporter

Our collection is home to the covered car transporter which formed part of the first ministerial train of the former GDR. We rescued this fine piece, which was last running as 60 50 99-54 6779-4, from scrapping at the very last moment in January 2006. In recent years, the former Pw4ΓΌ-30 (Gotha, 1930) survived the passage of time as a service vehicle in the Leipzig breakdown train and was only dispatched to the one-time repair shops in Wittenberge in 2004.

In 2008 and 2009, with substantial help from job creation scheme personnel, we succeeded in restoring this interesting item visually and to rolling condition.

This vehicle is currently standing at the hazardous goods loading ramp right next to our signal box, and has been used to accommodate exhibitions on a number of occasions.
