Assumption of ownership for 141 228-7

On Saturday, 14 August 2021, 141 228-7 was taken over by the Museumsbahn e. V. during a small internal ceremony. The electric locomotive, colloquially known as the “firecracker” because of its distinctive switching noises, was previously the property of DB Regio AG. In the meantime, it has become the property of the Deutsche Bahn Foundation and after successful negotiations it may – now “under its own flag” – continue to be used at our events and in front of special trains.

For more information on the history and technology of 141 228-7, please see our vehicle database.

Employees of Bahnwelt "baptise" 141 228-7 with its new owner Museumsbahn e. V. (D-MEV).
