The Train Workshop from 1907 is characterized by its size and its shed roof, which gave the workers a uniform skylight all day. Furthermore, it is an early example of a combined surface and hall building. The roof is lifted in the middle, as there should be room for a large running crane that could lift the heavy locomotives. In the large building, steam locomotives and later other locomotive equipment were inspected and repaired. The steam locomotives came to a major overhaul every four years and to a smaller one every two years. A major overhaul could last up to eight months.

Inside the building there is a 10 meter long sliding bridge, so you could move the large locomotives between the various workshop functions and tracks. Throughout the area, you can literally follow the tracks from one workshop to another and see how the individual workshops depended on each other's expertise. During the major inspections, everything was disassembled and the various parts were driven to the respective workshops via the narrow tracks. The train workshop and its equipment have a special cultural-historical significance for Copenhagen and we are very proud to be able to share it with you.

The tracks from the locomotive workshop lead directly into the boiler smithy from 1907. The locomotives could be driven from the locomotive workshop to the smithy via the tracks. Using a large attic crane, the boilers were lifted off the locomotive so that they could be disassembled, repaired and cleaned. There is still a narrow gauge that was used to transport equipment around between the workshops. 

...this is where we want to facilitate your event - in framings that are just breathtaking!
