“Blue Hour” at the Railway Museum

At this very special event on the eve of the Steam Locomotive Festival, all photography enthusiasts will have the grounds of the railway museum all to themselves to take impressive photos of our vehicles and experience the museum in a special atmosphere. The various locomotives and carriages will be appropriately illuminated and presented around the engine shed. One or more steam locomotives will be under steam. In addition, red-hot stud bolts are forged in the historic forge, providing unique motifs in the dark. Experience industrial culture at night!

In order to allow you enough space and undisturbed photography, the number of participants is limited to 50 persons and therefore pre-registration by e-mail (fotoabend@bahnwelt.de) (from the beginning of August) is necessary. Tickets for registered participants will be sold on site on the day of the event.
