On 14 October 1977, two German Railway haulers conveyed a very special freight, a 044 Series Steam Engine Locomotive and tender. This ‘Queen of the Low Mountain Range’ travelled to Altenbeken on the road. Following her comprehensive overhaul, she found a worthy position opposite the Egge Museum in Alten- beken.
The 044 389-5 freight train steam engine loco- motive was built in 1941; with her tender she weighs 128.5 tonnes. In her original condition, with a height of 4.5 metres and a length of 22.6 metres, she attracts many railway and steam enthusiasts from near and far; she is greatly admired, touched in awe and frequently photographed.
