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:
This year again, we sent a request to the support program of the ‘Volksbank Bochum Witten’. The Volksbank is sponsoring many projects of social clubs in our region every year. 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 win!
We would like to build up two more wagons for transportation of wheelchairs and baby strollers. Since we can’t do all the necessary work on our own and are also lacking some materials, we will need some money to get it done.
Here *VR Foerderprogramm Arge Muttenthalbahn* you can see the complete request (in gerrman only) and the button to vote for us (‘Stimme abgeben’ at the end of that page). Until 31-Jan-2019, you can vote for us every day!
Thank you very much and have nice christmas days!
