The Meiendorfer Kreis Kleinbahn (MKKB) is a museum railway in the northeast of Hamburg.
The MKKB would like to commemorate the many small light railways of the former clay pits and brickworks in the northeast of Hamburg.
On track with a gauge of 600mm (2ft) we mostly drive short wagon trains, as it was everyday life at the small industrial railways in former times.
Of course we also have some historical passenger cars to give our visitors a ride.
To the vehicle stock of the MKKB belong steam locomotives, diesel locomotives and even an electric locomotive of Orenstein & Koppel, probably one of the oldest electric light railway locomotives preserved. On a normal driving day you will experience both a rattling diesel locomotive and a steam locomotive in operation.
Some members of the club have developed a great love for the slate mine tracks in northwest Wales. For this reason the MKKB also has two “Alice” class steam locomotives from Hunselt and a train of slate wagons in its fleet.
The MKKB is currently operated by 36 active members. Our members work voluntarily in their spare time on the maintenance of the vehicles, the route and the organisation of our driving days.
We are always looking forward to new hard-working hands, be it to work on the vehicles, to sell tickets or also as heaters or locomotive drivers. -Are you interested in old light rail vehicles? Then simply talk to one of us!
