The Saxon Railroad Museum has two roundhouses that were built
from 1897-1900. One houses steam engines; the other is dedicated to diesel and
Each roundhouse has a 20-meter turntable that can accommodate
massive steam engines with their tenders.
Warning signs are parked in front of a maintenance car.
The restored Kohlenhochbunker, or high coal bunker, can
fill two tenders simultaneously.
In the German Democratic Republic, multimodal transportation
sometimes meant putting railcars on road trailers (as opposed to "piggybacking"
truck trailers on railway flatcars).
One of my own favorite exhibits is this high-speed diesel train
from the 1970s, which has a museum café in the passenger cars.
