For many years it has been a nice tradition to present the new museum wagon for the next year shortly before Christmas. On 15 December 2016, it was finally time again. The wagon was presented as part of the festive event. Again a company from the Göppingen region was serving as the model. The Sommerfeldt company has been dealing with the topic of overhead cables and pantographs for model locomotives already for 60 years.

For the model implementation in Märklin H0 gauge, a two-axle RImms-type stake car is used as overhead line construction car with a brakeman's platform and insert stakes. This car is employed with the Deutsche Bundesbahn as private car of the Sommerfeldt company and is from the mid 1960s.

Like its real-life model, this overhead line car receives a beautiful cargo with 2 overhead cable drums, various accessories like crates and ladders as well as a guide rack for the overhead cable. .

"I think my mother doesn't understand children!", Daniel says.

"What makes you think that?", aunt Kerstin asks.

"When I'm awake, she sends me to bed. And when I'm tired, she wakes me up."


All children eat meat - except for Harold, he only likes carrots.


In the train compartment:

"Do you know the joke of the 3rd train compartment? No? Nor do I, I was sitting in the 1st."


"My little brother is going to be baptised Wednesday" - "Wednesday? A silly name!"


Two toothpicks walk up the hill and are suddenly overtaken by a hedgehog. One toothpick says to the other "Oh - if I had known that there was a bus, I would have taken it."
