In 1989, the passion for steam locomotives led to the foundation of the IG Traditionslok 58 3047 e.V. association, which has been active as a group of the Stiftung Bahn-Sozialwerk (Foundation Railway Social work). The engine shed in Glauchau houses a collection of rail vehicles, including further locomotives of all traction types, which has been built up over the past decades. The association has offered attractive special events and train rides, so that people can experience these vehicles in real operation.
The depot is located in the north of the city on Glauchau station. Glauchau can be found south of the A4 motorway in western Saxony.
