On the tracks, ready, go! Follow the trail of the „black gold“ and become part of an experience that remembers history.

Mysterious dwarfs that unexpectedly appear along the routes. Quirky mountain spirits who wave to the passengers as they travel past. Old miners who recount adventures from the past. Exciting adventures from the past that awaken visitors‘ fantasies. Those who make a trip to the Scheiben coal station are rewarded with a special journey through time. At the Scheiben coal station in Geboltskirchen you can "experience" at close hand life in the former mines. Pedal along the tracks of the former coal trains on a rail-cycle or whizz around the 3.5 kilometre long circuit in a diesel locomotive through the Hausruck forest. Follow the trail of the “black gold” that was mined here until 1964, and learn about "life in the mines in Scheiben" through model replicas with photograph boards, images and an exhibition kitchen at the living museum in the station building.
