Locomotive World Freilassing

Multimedia guide featuring original interviews


Freilassing was once known as a railway town, with over a thousand people working in the local rail depot up until the 1980s. The beating heart of the depot was the round engine shed with turntable, which is today home to a railway exhibition. Many of the engines on show here belong to the Deutsches Museum, and several were once maintained and housed in the depot. In addition to providing all the required information for a visit to this train lover’s paradise, our multimedia guide also offers photographs of the railway’s heyday as well as videos of the engines in action. Most notably, however, the guide features numerous original recordings of former employees, some of whom still maintain the engines here to this day. These interviews provide fascinating insights into technical aspects of the railway and trains. Listening to these experienced former employees gives visitors an intimate impression of what life as a train driver or railway worker was like – a wonderful piece of oral history not to be missed.
