    The museum is housed in the former railway depot of the station Neuenmarkt-Wirsberg.
    It includes a 15-speed roundhouse, a segment turntable, water cranes, a coaling facility and a Ruge coal-handling crane in the redesigned old working coal yard.

    The museum is located in the railway village Neuenmarkt. Located at the foot of the first steep section in Europe, the Schiefen Ebene, it is probably the largest museum in Germany of its kind. The museum dates back to the foundation of a private initiative in 1984.

    Summer months (16.03.-01.11.)
    Tuesday-Sunday 10: 00-17: 00

    From here the hiking route starts along the inclined plain: an educational path accompanies the hiker to the most important buildings from the German steam locomotive museum Neuenmarkt to the station Marktschorgast. A technical monument in the middle of beautiful nature. It takes about three to three and a half hours for the somewhat demanding route with steep climbs. You can then return from Marktschorgast by train. Please only run along the signposted paths and never enter the railway facilities, because there is a risk of death. The railway line is driven at up to 120 km / h!
