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.

We need your support
Every year, the ‘Volksbank Bochum Witten’ is sponsoring many projects of social clubs in our region. This time, we will participate with a request for sponsoring of a tamping machine. This machine would help us very much in maintenance and track-extension tasks! All sponsoring requests to the Volksbank will be presented on their webpage and are available for a public voting. For this voting, we need your support to raise our chance to get the tamping machine.
At *this page*, you can find the complete request (it’s only available in german) and the button to vote for us (‘Stimme abgeben’).
Thank you very much!
Your Arge Muttenthalbahn
