Around 1900 the Bebra station was extensively expanded. Numerous steam locomotives were at home in the depot. The enormous water requirement could no longer be covered by the 1200 m³ turf tank alone; an expansion was necessary. The problem was solved with the water tower built in 1910, its volume of 500 m³ and the greater height difference to the water cranes on the track area. The tanks were fed from the Fulda pumping station, which was built in 1884 and located around 1.5 km away, near the Ulfen mill. In 1984 it was threatened with demolition, one year later the city of Bebra bought the tower for 1 DM from the Deutsche Bundesbahn. The association "Eisenbahnfreunde Bebra" designed the water tower as a technical museum. Literature tip: The water tower in Bebra, Rund um den Alheimer, Volume 25/2004, pp. 6-11.
