WCCE8 2013 – a missed opportunity!
A model railway museum
Something else that I missed in the WCCE8 2013 rush –
I read about the Model Railway Club of Fürstenfeldbruck in the lovely little booklet about Fürstenfeldbruck that I think was in my yellow Congress Bag. There was little enough time to read the Programme or delve into the Abstract Book, that were also in that bag, let alone look at the tourist information during the Congress, so it was only on the train home that I found out about what else I had missed.
How pleased I was when I read further and discovered that the museum closes each year for a few weeks and this was exactly the time that I was in Fürstenfeldbruck. I would have been furious if I had missed visiting a museum all about trains that was under my nose, at Bahnhofstrasse 20, right on the route to the Congress venue.
I know that there was at least one other railway enthusiast at the Congress. If I had known about the museum before-hand I would have tried to organise a pre-congress visit for several participants!
Perhaps I will make a return trip to Fürstenfeldbruck one day soon, during the open season of the Museum. I would also like to have time to look around the cloister and its church too, other things that in the Cngress there was just not enough time to do properly.
