Preßnitztalbahn Jubilee

2017 is the 125 Year Jubilee of the Preßnitztalbahn and 25 yrs of the Museumsbahn.

So this is a very good year to come and visit an historic working narrow gauge steam train in the heart of the Erzgebirge.

2016 Roof Renovation Completed

This year we worked on the roof at the front of the house, the last chimney was also removed.
img_ds_beforeThe old dormers (dach gaube) at the front were removed and replaced with Velux windows, extra windows were installed in the top loft room to let more light in.

We learned a lot from working on the roof at the back of the house, so the finish on the front of the house is much better.

Even Debbie got out on the roof to help with the installation.

Installed a new 2€ coin from 2016 with the Sachsen/Dresden image near the top left of the roof. Something for a future builder to find.

2015 Replace Windows

We finally had the old windows replaced with modern triple-glazed windows, they  are made by Dietel in Jöhstadt.

We ordered the windows from a local company (Jens Niederle) who measured up and installed the new windows.

IMG_4755The windows at the front of the house have wood effect on the outside and all white on the inside.

At the back of the house the windows are white on both sides.

 

 

We were amazed at the number of people stopping to have a look at the front of the house, as you can see from the photo (taken before all of them were replaced) it has completely changed the look.
