Eisenbahn und Sammler Museum Courlevon

The ESMC museum: meet technical history in DasDEPOT.ch

get to know interesting aspects about technology, transportation and history from the region of the three lakes, selected by the young director Leonard Riesen

This year's theme: "Fuel Wood"

tells with many historical photos, illustrations and of course, as always, with real objects about the exciting principle that vehicles can run on wood instead of gasoline.

Highlights of this year's exhibition are a Berna truck with wood gasifier, which has been in use here in the Seeland since 1932 and had to be transported here from Aargau for the exhibition, as well as a Bührer BG6 tractor from around 1939, also with wood gasifier. There are also two complete Imbert and Royal wood gas plants on display for explanatory purposes.
