Welcome to the Muttenthalbahn light railway
All you need to know about the mining and narrow-gauge railway museum and
operating days with further details on the Muttenthalbahn can be found on this page.
The working group Muttenthalbahn has been based below Schloss Steinhausen
directly by the River Ruhr in Witten-Bommern since 1989. The premises used
to belong to the now defunct Zeche Theresia Colliery which closed down as far
back as 1892. This mine had played a role in the early days of the mining
industry south of the Ruhr. Our working group had redeveloped the listed
colliery buildings which now serve as a good homestead for the museum.
Please take a look at our homepage for your enjoyable perusal.
Our latest report:
30 years Muttenthalbahn
At the 25th and 26th of June, 2016, the Arge Muttenthalbahn e.V. celebrates their 30 years anniversary!
All companions, sponsors and patrons, as well as our numerous visitors of whom we carried more than 139,000 without an accident, since the museum opened in 2002, are cordially invited. Food, drinks and new impressions of the museum will be provided.
Several guest vehicles are going on the tracks as freight trains with passenger transport. Our passenger shuttle train is driving as usual from the parking lot at the Nachtigallstraße to the Zeche Theresia and to the Zeche Nachtigall. The museum will be open for our guests from 11:00 AM to 05:00 PM.
Once again we hope to meet many “old friends” and to welcome you to the Zeche Theresia.
Stay with us and have a nice time.
Your Arge Muttenthalbahn
