Lovers of old steam engines will be entranced by a visit to the Railway Museum. The first double-stand shed was built here in 1867 and the present railway workshop opened in 1898. In the mid-1990s, it was converted into today's Railway Museum. Together with the 16 steam and diesel engines dating from various railway eras and a number of shunting engines, visitors can admire the smithy that still functions today, the workshop and an old coal stove or gain an impression of the size of the engine sheds.
