De Dietrich produced freight wagons as early as 1855 even before making railroad carriages for passengers. At the end of the 19th century, the imperative need to circulate heavy and bulky materials was essential to satisfy industry and trade then in full development. Thus, wagons took many forms. Their use has dictated specific models according to the goods transported: insulated wagons for the transport of food products and beer, tank wagons for the transport of chemical products, oil and also wine! De Dietrich has thus greatly contributed to the progress of rail freight through the numerous technical advances designed and developed in its design offices and factories. The company ceased production of wagons in 1970, with the exception of special wagons for the steel industry, faced with the scarcity of large orders and competition.

Enriched with documents, photographs, models, an animated miniature circuit, this exhibition offers a beautiful retrospective on a flagship company in Alsace.
