On Monday, August 16th, 2021, steam locomotive 'Waldbröl' was used at Osberghausen station in a much-noticed and much-photographed operation.
Steam locomotive 'Waldbröl' helps with the shunting work to provide the empty wagon set
Due to an incident during the delivery of the empty timber train, the Diesel shunting locomotive stationed in Osberghausen was unable to take over the delivery of the empty wagons to the loading siding. Uwe Henrich, railway operations manager of the RSE Ltd. (Rhein-Sieg-Eisenbahn GmbH), which operates in Osberghausen, asked the railway entrepreneur Andreas Voll from Wiehl whether he could take over the shunting work with his steam locomotive 'Waldbröl' (Voll is the owner of the Dieringhausen railway museum since a few months), as another locomotive could not be brought over so quickly. Andreas Voll spontaneously agreed to help, and so the empty wagon set could be made available for loading.
