Rügen Railway and Technical Museum

The railway museum on the Baltic island of Rügen, in Mecklenburg-West Pomeriania is housed in buildings that were part of the Kraft durch Freude (Strength through Joy) resort built by the Third Reich at Prora in the 1930s. Most of its exhibits are displayed in a 4000 square metre hall. The museum concentrates on the railways of the former DDR, the Deutsche Reichbahn. Exhibits include a class 03 pacific express locomotive, 2-10-0 freight locomotives of classes 44 and 50, and a Russian-built semi-streamlined 4-8-4 No P36-123 built for express passenger work in the 1950s. There is a 75mm gauge Royal Saxon State Railways 0-4-4-0T tank locomotive of a class built between 1882 and 1921, and a class 1118 electric locomotive from the Austrian state railways. Other railway exhibits include some small diesel shunting locomotives and a steam-powered rotary snow plough. There are some tramcars including one from Berlin that is used as a ticket office, and a collection of cars, which is not confined to those made in the DDR.
