Because of the expanding collection of locomotives and coaches the Club 760 had to look for a possibility to protect it from weather,because the vehicles stood outdoor near the station Murau. After a long search some ground could be leased near the Murtal Railway station Frojach-Katschtal, Styria and at whitsunday 1975 the basement was laid for the hall of the narrow gauge museum. In Summer 1978 there was the construction of the steelframes. As there were a lots of donations, the hall could be finished, so that all non operating engines and the SKGLB lounge car have a protecting roof now.
The museum in Frojach has three tracks and a connection to the Murtalbahn. Every trunk has a length of 29 metres (about 95 ft.) under roof and can be used for placing up to 9 vehicles, depending on their length. The connection between museum and line was built by the StLB and is leased to the club for a symbolic leasing rate.
If you want informations, when the museum will be opened, please, sent
us a mail.
Because some of the engines in the museum are serviceable again in action at different railways ( for example the U 11, 83-076) the Museum had been an ideal place for the coaches of the Taurachbahn in the wintertime. But now after the building of the great hall at Mauterndorf there is a lot of place in the museum, maybe, for further exhibits, if the club will get some in the future.
