Project of 360° movie

Recently a group of the project Fanthomes was in our tunnel. Some shots were made for a 360° movie for about myths, legends and folklore from the region of Rumelange. Children and people from the surrounding area made among other things the costumes.

Two locomotives soon almost like new

Les deux locomotives électriques articulées à l’entrée de la route près de la Cimalux à Rumelange sont actuellement remises en état par une équipe du CIGL Rumelange. Un grand merci pour cela.

The heaviest maschine of our exhibition

De 1957 à 1997, l’ARBED a utilisé cette locomotive électrique à bogies dans les galeries françaises. Il s’agit avec ses 44 tonnes de la machine la plus lourde de notre musée. Elle a été construite par la société Jeumont (F) en 1957. La locomotive est équipée de quatre moteurs électriques de 153ch chacun et a été utilisés dans les mines Burbach et Audun. Depuis l’an 2000, elle fait partie de notre exposition souterraine.
