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 used premises belong to the now defunct Zeche[colliery] Theresia 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.
We wish you an enjoyable perusal of our page and are looking forward to welcome you in the museum!
Our latest report:
Good and bad news
We recently received a €25,000.00 donation from the NRW Stiftung, to support our plans to improve the railway tracks. Thank you very much!
But of course, we are also very grateful for all other sponsors, people who bought the virtual tickets as well as our long time supporters.
Unfortunately, we have to inform you that we will not have any opening days this year. The additional financial and organizational effort, to comply with the contact restrictions, as well as the significantly lower utilization of the trains itself, makes it impossible for us to guarantee a reasonable operation.
Of course we are already thinking about next year and hope to see you again as soon as possible!
