Collapsed rotunda

This is how the rotunda of the Royal Saxon State Railroad's elevator from 1875 turned out. It was only in December 1989 that a 21.5 metre long turntable was installed so that the steam locomotives of the 52 series (Hitler's famous kriegslokomotive), which were still used for heating at that time, could turn here. Until then, all repairs had to be carried out in distant railway workshops that had such a large turntable. The 1990s also saw the fitting of new rolling gates, only for the depot to be closed after the 1999 reorganisation, and the roof of the rotunda collapsed in late 2021, still trapping the museum association's unique carriages.
