Reconstruction of locomotive shed: Laying of the foundation stone (May 2019)

Darmstadt’s Lord Mayor Jochen Partsch celebrated the start of construction with the laying of the foundation stone on Ascension Day, 30 May 2019 at 11.00 am. In keeping with tradition, coins, a daily newspaper, the list of names of the members of the city council, the board of the museum railway and the construction plans, were cast into the foundation in a steel quiver. The special feature: the steel quiver is made of a smoke pipe from a steam locomotive. Members of the association in historic railway uniforms formed the framework for the laying of the foundation stone.
