WEDNESDAY RAILWAY MEMORIES
The small railway or economic railway of Szeged operated between 1927 and 1975, whose last stop was Ásotthalom on one branch and Pusztamérges on the other.
The narrow-gauge railway made it easier to get agricultural products to the urban market, and to travel between the farm world and the city. In addition to its economic benefits, the small railway also had a socio-cultural benefit: it was also possible to get to evening parties and theatrical performances from the farms. The line was extremely important in the local history of Szeged, Szeged-alsótanya and Csongrád-Csanád county.
The complete renovation of the Domaszék station building and the compilation of the materials of the railway history exhibition have been ongoing since 2008 with the help of the Szeged Railway History Foundation, the Szeged Economic Railway Historical, Local History Public Benefit Association, retired railway engineer József Engi and local residents.
The museum’s largest and most special exhibit is a locomotive and its associated wagon, that travelled on the original small railway.
