The Saturday railtour.
The main tour train consisted of diesel locomotive V65 001 and three 4-wheel carriages belonging to Osnabrücker Dampflokfreunde e.V., and made an extensive visit to the Hafen area in Osnabrück before visiting the Osnabrücker Dampflokfreunde's base at Osnabrück-Piesing. Here a short ride on a former coal loading branch was taken, followed by a visit to the nearby Industrial Museum and a trip on the nearby Feldbahn. Afterwards further branches were visited east of Osnabrück.

A visit to the "Museum Industriekultur Osnabrück" (website) which is adjacent to the headquarters of the Osnabrücker Dampflokfreunde.
From the lower level a tunnel leads to a shaft which used to be worked by a winding engine, today it contains a lift. The former winding engine house is now the main part of the museum. Worth spending an hour or two there; there is a cafe for drinks and snacks. Also see the nearby narrow gauge railway.
