The 285 K in Bertsdorf on 02.08.2017
We acquired this wagon kit of a 4-axle Saxon skylight passenger car on the 28th. July 1995. This very typical passenger car on Saxonian Narrow Gauge Railway was 1899 in Chemnitz as No. 285 K of the K.Sächs.Sts.E.B. His last home station was Lommatzsch. Before the salvage he was already 27 years as chicken coop. After the transfer of the wagon body to Bertsdorf, this was restored, the framework received a first review.
Since 02.08.2017 our wagon 970-303 has returned to service. The wagon is a community project between our club as owner and SOEG as main user. The wagon carries for this reason the Saxon Number 285 K and the green color for second and third passenger class.
