Reconstruction of locomotive shed: Exposing the foundations (September 2018 until May 2019)

The reconstruction of the locomotive shed stands began with “archaeological excavations”, during which the still existing foundations of the former shed stands 9, 10 and 11 were uncovered.

Above from left to right: With an excavator and a lot of manual work, the existing remains of the natural stone foundation of the former rear shed wall are first exposed piece by piece. According to structural specifications, the foundations had to be removed to 1.40m below the upper edge of the track so that the new steel-reinforced foundations could be built on top. The track yokes laid in the 1980s on the backfilled investigation pits were initially left on site.

Above from left to right: The foundations facing the turntable were also carefully exposed, and a parallel drainage channel made of clinker masonry was excavated down to the bottom. This so-called “ring channel” had been filled with building rubble when the old locomotive shed was demolished.
