  • Workshop for the passenger coaches of the DFB

    The Aargau section of the Furka-Mountain railway association runs a workshops for the overhaul  of passenger coaches. As a legally independent section, it is also responsible for the financing of the overhauls and provides the passenger coaches of the steam train without any financial burden for the operation on the mountain route.

    Professional work and control of the Federal Office of Transport (FOT)

    Approximately 60 employees with a variety of professional backgrounds work on Tuesdays or Thursdays in the afternoon or in the evenings on the restoration of historical passenger coaches . Over the years, the team, led by Werner Beer, has acquired an excellent know-how about restore of  old coaches based on historical models. The coaches are then inspected  and certified by the FOT


    Workshop rooms with all necessary machines and equipments

    With the rooms of the old slaughterhouse of the city of Aarau, the Coach workshop has an excellent infrastructure with which it can carry out almost all the necessary work in its own house. The machinery and equipment in metalworking, carpentry, painting and the coach assembly hall are largely sponsored by friends of the steam railway or could be acquired on favorable conditions.
